Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween follows the Quinn family - high school senior Sarah (Madison Iseman), her middle school brother Sonny (Jeremy Ray Taylor), and their mother Kathy (Wendi McLendon-Covey) -- into an entirely new set of spooky and funny events.

"Sonny and schoolmate Sam (Caleel Harris) are best friends with a side job as the 'Junk Brothers', collecting discarded stuff the people don't want.

But it's a gig that leads them right into the path of Slappy (Avery Lee Jones), the mischievous ventriloquist dummy from an unpublished Goosebumps book.

Directed by Ari Sandel from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, the film also stars Chris Parnell and Ken Jeong. The Goosebumps films are based on Scholastic’s book series of the same name penned by RL Stine. Black essays the role of the writer in the film.

Stine's Goosebumps series has so far sold 350 million copies worldwide, and hence made for an inspiration for cinematic thrillers in Hollywood. The 2015 film, Goosebumps, raked in around $150 million worldwide, as per the same report. The film depicted events that follow when Stine (played by Black), along with other characters in the film, realise that Stine fictitious world is becoming reality.
