Attack of the Mutant

Are you ready for some Halloween Thrills? Two new Goosebumps adventures, Attack of the Mutant and Ghost Beach  – from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have arrived!

With over 300 million books sold, R.L. Stine’s wildly successful children’s stories ( ) come to life with two all-new terrifying tales.  First, Attack of the Mutant includes “Attack of the Mutant Parts 1 & 2” and follows Skipper Matthews and his awesome comic book collection.  Skipper’s favorite is The Masked Mutant, the story of an evil, power-mad super-villain who is out to gain control of the universe.  One day, while lost in a strange part of town, Skipper discovers a building that mysteriously resembles the Mutant’s secret headquarters… a building that magically disappears.  Has Skipper read one too many comic books?  Or does The Masked Mutant really exist?  The DVD also features “Phantom of the Auditorium™,” a frightening story about a young actress who is thrilled after winning the lead in the school play… until the nightmares begin as there is the talk of a real phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years.

Ghost Beach

Next, Ghost Beach includes “The Barking Ghost” and follows Cooper Holmes, a young man who is scared of just about everything.  His father says he’s the only kid to scare himself on Halloween!  But as he moves into a new house, this time, Cooper is not just scared of his own shadow.  In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” class klutz Samantha Byrd is the laughingstock of the girls’ basketball team.  But now, Samantha has found someone who will grant her three wishes.  Too bad she wasn’t more careful as now Sam’s wishes are turning her life into a living nightmare!  Lastly, “Ghost Beach” focuses on Jerry, who is thrilled by the prospect of exploring the dark, eerie old cave he discovered down by the beach.  When he hears the story of a 300-year-old ghost living inside, Jerry must decide if he will believe the legend or dismiss it as a silly made-up tale.

Our Take: Last year my then 7-year-old fell in love with the Goosebumps Series. One of the stations would show them on TV almost every day during October. Of course, we had to DVR them, for hours more of entertainment! Well, he slowly stopped watching them and started reading the books. I think they were just the right amount of “spooky” for his age. When these two new videos came, he was excited and had to watch them right away. His favorite was Ghost Beach. In his words, “It was funnier, had more episodes and was even scarier!”

    One of R.L. Stine’s favorite stories was Pinocchino from his mother reading it to him when he was a child. He’s always liked the idea of a wooden puppet coming to life. He bagan with his stories when he was a child.

    He has enjoyed stories since he was a child. His Dummy books came from his love of wood due to Pinocchio.
