An angry pumpkin, scary garden gnomes, and a gang of giant gummy bears are just a few of the creepy curiosities in the new movie Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. The film, based on the popular Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine, hit theaters October 12. It follows siblings Sarah and Sonny Quinn and Sonny’s best friend, Sam. When a ventriloquist dummy comes to life, the three set out on a spooktacular adventure to save their town.
Actor JEREMY RAY TAYLOR (pictured) plays Sonny. For him, the scariest part of the movie involves an enormous gourd. “There is a giant pumpkin, and we have a little bit of an encounter with him,” Jeremy told TFK Kid Reporter Will Holland. “It’s terrifying. I would not like to run into that in real life.” Yet the chilling scenes in Goosebumps 2 are balanced by many humorous moments. “It is a pretty good combination of scary and funny,” Jeremy says. “I don’t think you can find many movies like that these days.”
