R.L. Stine’s Attack of the Mutant and Ghost Beach, both part of the Goosebumps series just came out on DVD September 13th from Twentieth Century Fox Home
Entertainment. R.L. Stine has sold over 300 million books and his children’s thrillers are huge hits with many school age children.

I specifically had the desire to cover the Goosebumps products because I know many teachers use them in their classrooms – including my husband! His students LOVE Goosebumps stories! The first thing my husband noticed about these new Goosebumps DVD’s is that instead of just one story per disc, each DVD has three stories! He was thrilled to know that he now had six new episodes from just two DVD’s!

Here is a short synopsis of each DVD:
 Attack of the
 “Attack of the Mutant – Parts 1 & 2”
“Phantom of the Auditorium”
Attack of the Mutant follows
Skipper Matthews and his awesome comic book collection. Skipper’s favorite is
The Masked Mutant which is 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?  Phantom of the Auditorium is a frightening story about a young actress
who is thrilled after winning the lead in the school play… until the
nightmares begin. There is talk of a real phantom who has haunted the
auditorium for years.

Ghost Beach

Barking Ghost”
“Be Careful What You Wish For”
“Ghost Beach”
The Barking Ghost is about 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 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. Sam’s wishes are turning her life into a living nightmare! 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.
Goosebumps are good spooky thrillers for kids generally about 3rd grade and up, although many 2nd graders love them too. This is a great way for your kids to enjoy suspenseful movies and books without anything truly scary. Stories generally correlate with the book which is a great way to incorporate compare/contrast activities. Goosebumps are easy reads and the kids and my husband REALLY love them. The Goosebumps books are the most touched in my husband’s classroom, and the DVD’s are most desired!
