What Goosebumps Book did you think was Scariest?

Postby Vitotamito » December 13th, 2010, 1:47 pm

For me, it was the "Night of the Living Dummy part. 1" I couldn't read it for years.

I think the one I enjoyed the most, however, was "The Beast from the East."

For me it was, "the tale of the middle school aged kid gets into a scary situation involving something that would either be really mundane or something the kid would enjoy if it wasn't trying to kill them."

The only Goosebump story I remember was one where there's some slimy stuff in a plane that get into peoples brains and they.. kill people, maybe. it probably was scary.

None of them scared me as a kid. They were pretty fun. I liked that one about the summer camp with the wolf monster and kids keep disappearing but everyone tells the protagonist they never existed and in the end it turns out
Spoiler! :
it was all a test scenario to prepare the kid for exploring the mysterious unpredictable planet CALLED EARTH! *looks up and sees the planet in the sky*

...Wait, what? That twist has nothing to do with anything! YOU'RE A HACK, STINE!

I loved that one, especially when
Spoiler! :
they did the reveal and immediately there were suddenly copious references to their alien anatomy.

I never found them scary but Night of the Living Dummy creeped me out the most.

Haha Beast of the East was so funny. But I really liked the story of Say Cheese and Die.

I want that camera.

I don't think I found them scary but I had a Night of The Living Dummy book that when you pressed it the eyes glowed or something. Well, ventrioloquist dummies are pretty creepy in general so even though I can't remember what the story was I think that was probably the creepiest one.

Or the one about the invisible friend and when they finally see the friend they're like WHAT IS HE because he's human and suddenly they're revealed to be alien despite that never being even hinted at earlier


Spoiler! :
I like in his short goosebump stories because the endings are like.. STORY ABOUT WEREWOLVES.. TURNS OUT THE MAIN CHARACTER IS THE WEREWOLF ALL ALONG! rinse repeat just with different creatures

YAY! I share something with Mr. Aids! Though I was a bit let down on how Say Cheese and Die ended(kinda thought that Are you Afraid of the Dark? did a better job with the killer camera thing(ending blew on that too really)). Hmm hmm the Mask one didn't scare me, buut it was unsettling. Something about face swapping me no likey. I dunno. I kind of thought Stein was a bit of a cop out. Even his 'adult' books were pretty predictable.

The covers scared me so much on the Night of the Living Dummy and on pretty much all the rest until I was about ten. Then I had a period where I read all of them with in a week or two. I was a fast reader then. The one that scared me the most was when two kids got stuck in the Tower of London and had to time
travel to get away from a ghost executioner. At the time I remember not being able to sleep for like two nights. I was a sissy then too, sooo...

I just think it's a shame the children's horror shows don't stand the test of time. Not a single kid on Are You Afraid of the Dark? OR Goosebumps could act their way out of a wet paper bag. All the girls could ever do was scream, because I really don't think there's a little girl out there who can't shriek at an annoyingly high level. You can't really call it a talent.

Stine's got a new show called R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. Don't know if it's any good. I just hope he finally found some kids who can act.

I don't remember being particularly scared by any of the stories, but I remember at the beginning of one of them, a girl was telling her little brother about a monster that would go around eating people's toes while they weren't paying attention. Despite every rationalisation my nine-year-old mind could produce, I slept in socks for a month.
