Movie Review: 'Goosebumps'

Parents need to know that "Goosebumps" is a live-action movie based on the best-selling middle-grade horror novels by R.L. Stine. There are lots of different kinds of monsters (who could certainly frighten young/sensitive kids), and though teens are in peril and there are some scares, the main focus is on action: chasing, fighting, destruction and chaos. Expect a bit of kissing and some spoken references to things like twerking, YouTube and a kid "being on drugs." Language isn't an issue, with the strongest word being "butt." Overall, the movie is still fairly lowbrow in tone; it will likely appeal to fans of the books, but other scary-movie lovers might prefer something quieter and spookier.
