Rent Goosebumps on BoxOffice

If you are a fan of the Goosebumps children’s horror fiction novella then you will love Goosebumps the movie, which is freshly available for rent on BoxOffice.

The story centres on novelist R L Stine, played by Jack Black, and Zach, a teenage kid who has recently moved into a new suburban neighbourhood from New York.

Zach is not quite sure how he feels about the new environment; the slow and orderly motion is a great contrast to the fast city life he left behind. He seems to be eager to have some normal, teenage fun and he gets his wish when he has an awkward encounter with R L Stine - the writer of the Goosebumps books. Zach becomes friends with Champ and Hanna (played by the gorgeous blue eyed Odeya Rush) and together their adventure begins.

Just like in the books, the movie scenes are fast and have been shot in multiple venues as the group tries to escape horrific situations. Plus, there is a visit from the entire monsters collection from the books. The scenes are scary enough to give you literal goose bumps yet still tame enough for the kiddos to cope with.

In real life, Stine confesses that most of the monsters featured in his book were inspired by his childhood fears; which keeps to the movie’s plot... imagine having all you imaginations coming to life!

A perfect cocktail of humour, fun and goofy horror, this is the right movie for the family to enjoy and you can rent it on BoxOffice on your DStv Explora.
