    Goosebumpy alright This is the first book of the original book series of Goosebumps CREEPY GOOD BOOK Obviously I wasn t expecting a scary bloody tale, since this is Goosebumps, not H.P Lovecraft, but I am glad to say that the book is quite well written, with an engaging narrative and a kinda of cliffhanger or shocking last line on each chapter making you to keep reading.I found ingenious that the main character and narrator of the story is a teenage girl, due this is the first book of a series that eventually became so popular and bestseller having young audience as main targets, so the boys will pick the book since it s terror, and the girls will pick the book since a girl is the main characters without messing the topic with clich s of women read romance , men read terror , since I know for sure that it s not the case but as a business decision for a key first book in a series in this kind of genre and target audiences, I thought that it was well chosen.It was a book quick to read and I enjoyed a lot, it s not something that it will give you nightmares but certainly it will give you goosebumps And at the end, that s the whole purpose of this series WELCOME TO DARK FALLS You don t have to be a rocket scientist to know that any town named Dark Falls isn t a good place to go to live, but hey If our heroes wouldn t go there, we wouldn t have a story to read, right Meet The Benson Family Dad, Mom, Amanda the main character 12 years old and Josh 11 years old along with their dog Petey I guess they were huge fans of The Little Rascals.They got a letter explaining that certain distant relative that they never heard before aaaha died and he left them his old house as inheritance.Of course, the house is on Dark Falls, and you can bet that the dang house has two Windows at front just like the Amityville House But who cares Free house So, everybody packin folks Since Dark Falls, here we go Soon enough Amanda starting to notice here and there, strange happenings.Yep Free house Aha.But, don t be so harsh on them As I say, if they wouldn t decided to live in that creepy house, we wouldn t have this book to read.Thanks Benson Family Good luck and I hope seeing you alive again Free house Dang

    Alright ladies and gentlemen,The first book of the fabled classic Goosebumps.The house is a freebie Is haunted.The entire town is, as well Two siblings discover that fears do come true.Very well drawn up from the master of scare Mr Stine.The story bears a classic uniqueness of Stine but a cliffhanger ending is his trademark.Turning back my high school library years, it made my bone chill, yet again.Take all the stars

    THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS From graphic descriptions of a family gnawing on moldy plates of human bones to a small town conspiring to murder the new family that has just moved into the creepiest house on the block, Welcome to Dead House easily could work as a standalone novel despite originally being marketed for children under the iconic and popular Goosebumps series This bit of gothic supernatural horror is extremely dark and after backlash and censorship in the 1990 s from horrified parents and teachers, R.L Stine understandably toned down the content of his series in future installments to make them comedic and less unsettling and sad That being said, I think something was really lost when he did this, because Welcome to Dead House was one of the only books I can remember reading as a kid that was classified as horror but dealt with tragedy, family dysfunction and the overwhelming emotions and common fears associated with moving He addressed these things both metaphorically and literally, and the book, unlike many other Goosebumps novels, doesn t try to avoid serious themes, but instead dives into them with a surprising amount of depth and complexity for a book targeted towards twelve year olds.I ll concede I was a much bigger fan of the TV film adaptation produced in 1997 and filmed on Toronto s industrial Unwin Avenue I think the film did a better job at the scary factor with the usage of decrepit scenery, unsettling soundtrack and had the devastating chemical factory accident as of a central plot device I d actually be surprised if there weren t a few adults not at least mildly creeped out by the film version you have to watch it in the dark to get the full effect , created by the talented William Fruet who also brought us the 1980 horror film Funeral Home The film also addressed economic depression in industrial towns in a way that seems much appropriate for adults, with talk of people being fired from their jobs and a newspaper discussing an accident in the town s main employer, Dark Falls Chemical, an explosion which killed most of the workers and left the rest of the townspeople isolated and frustrated The book vaguely touches on this but not in the same manner The book, however, is still arguably the best children s horror story I ve ever read In it we have Amanda Benson, a girl who finds herself and her typical all American family moving to a town that is anything but Dark Falls is odd More than odd The sunlight is virtually non existent, the townsfolk are asocial and rarely seen and everything seems abandoned The other children living in town seem either very depressed or very menacing We also have a real estate agent, Compton Dawes, who seems to have no shortage of excuses for why the house looks old and gross or why the neighbourhood is so quiet Amanda herself doesn t cope well with the move, having to leave a beloved friend behind in a very harrowing, tearful goodbye, and upon arriving in Dark Falls she begins to see things As is often the case, her parents and brother begin to think she s troubled, chalking up her visions of dead people to be related to her anger over the move Meanwhile dysfunction ensues within the family itself including Josh Benson running away from home , the parents fighting over petty things like the crispiness of a piece of bacon and the family dog going missing Things eventually take a turn for the downright brutal and shocking, including Mr Dawes having his head beaten inward with a large halogen flashlight, a boy being melted apart to the point where his eyes pour out from his skull, the dog being killed and eaten by the townsfolk, descriptions of an unnamed yellow gas from the factory floating over Dark Falls and killing off all the residents of the town luckily Stine spared his readers from knowing exactly how the gas worked, because wow and a teenage girl named Karen actually thanking Amanda for killing her I can see why there was a backlash against children reading this story That being said at the time of its publication and to this day, it took the haunted house trope and used it to sympathize with a plight that most kids have to face at least once in their childhood Moving is difficult, whether you see it as an adventurous new start or a cut off from your friends and school With moving from one place to another often comes the feeling that nobody understands you, that the people in your new town are weird or rude or different, and that everybody is out to get you, that you can t trust anyone Welcome to Dead House creates the perfect metaphor for this, where everybody really is out to get you and you can t trust anyone, because they re all secretly conspiring to murder your family as a cruel means of survival.

    When it comes to horror movies I like them the same way I like my pizza extra cheesy However, the same cannot be said of my horror books Back when I was a young lady little turd, my favorite place in the world was a tiny library in an old fashioned town called Henderson My aunt lived up the road, and when I say up, I mean it literally Once I had a bag full of books I had to lug them up a hill that felt like it would never end My siblings and I spent a lot of time there in the summers because my mother was the manager of a convenient store right across the street from the library My aunt s house was also conveniently located in front of a playground and was surrounded by kids I went to school with There was one summer in particular where I discovered the wonderful stories of R.L Stine I saw the covers with the bumped up letters and scary images and knew I had to have them all And so my love of the macabre was born While the neighborhood kids all played outside on the playground or at summer recreation or spent their day running under the hose, I could be found with my nose in a book This is not to say, however, that I didn t horse around when the time was right There was horsing around aplenty But, what I remember most is sitting under a tree, behind the garage, on my aunt s fence, or holed up in the little tube at the playground reading as fast as my eyes would let me I think I read every issue of Goosebumps available in that summer And it is that summer that I remember most fondly.After losing my father to cancer about a year and a half ago, I have been on a bit of a quest I ve been trying to relive my youth in an attempt to rediscover myself redefine myself in light of the overwhelming realities I ve had to face.Reading Goosebumps was just one item on a list of several meant to help me through this journey And oh What a treat this truly was I was immediately taken back to those summer days that felt endless It was as if I had stepped into a time machine I found myself laughing like a child again my youth restored I was able to find what had fascinated me so much as a kid again and that was an experience all in its own The book itself is 100% a cheese fest I refuse to sugar coat it The writing caused me to roll my eyes through most of it, the storyline so obvious and the characters well they were cookie cutouts at best But, I can t completely throw this book under the bus The memories it brought up, the feeling I had in my soul, the laughter that poured out of me at the silliness of it all those things are worth than any money in the world I look forward to reading of these and hope that they still bring me the joy that they once did even if it comes in a different form.

    There s something off about the old house Amanda s dad inherited from a deceased uncle he s never heard of A cold breeze made me shiver It was actually a beautiful, hot summer day But the closer we got to the house, the colder I felt Welcome to Dead House offers a satisfying blend of camp and creepiness I started up the stairs and then stopped Above me on the landing stood a strange girl, about my age, with short black hair She was smiling down at me, not a warm smile, not a friendly smile, but the coldest, most frightening smile I had ever seen. And the book hints at the comedic slant R.L Stine later brought to the series Where is everyone I asked, looking up and down the empty street It s really dead around here, huh He chuckled Yeah I guess you could say that Welcome to Dead House may not be an extraordinary read for adults, but as a child this book, and the other books in the series, were irresistible and incontrovertibly spooky They made reading fun and the act of buying a new book something to look forward to with great anticipation.

    I read this because I promised my 11 year old that I would read it with him He hates to read anything that isn t a comic book, or at the very least, in graphic novel format Since he loves all things creepy, I thought that this would be a great way to finally get the kid to read something with actual chapters I think this is probably as close to perfect as it gets for a reluctant reader like my son The chapter are short two or three pages at the most , and yet packed with super creepy stuff Nothing too graphic or gory, but still scary enough to keep a kid like mine interested I think this book is a great introduction into the horror paranormal genre for older children.I think this would probably be suitable for ages 10 and up.

    I probably won t give any of these full reviews, but I grew up on the Goosebumps series and adored it so much that I ve decided to pick it back up from the beginning I ll probably only be reading the main original series, but we ll see.This was so much fun than I remembered it being I know I read this a few times as a kid, and read it again in my teens to find it boring, but I couldn t put it down today and had a blast revisiting Stine s writing style and his weird little ideas It s predictable as anything, of course, reading this as an adult even if I didn t know for sure that I was remembering the twist correctly , but the characters are fun, the plot is quick paced, and there s the classic shocker ending Stine s always been so well known for.I d be lying if I said I wasn t excited as heck to pick up book 2 soon P
