A giant praying mantis attacks in first ‘Goosebumps’ clip


The first Goosebumps clip has arrived, and in it you shall witness a giant praying mantis attacking, and Jack Black and co screaming.

The clip is relatively funny, but what is really impressive are the special effects, which are terrific. Check out the clip, and a reminder of the trailer, below.

Author R.L Stine’s series of books called Goosebumps spawned a TV series in the 90’s, and was adored by fans looking for something dark, funny, frightening and everything inbetween.

Goosebumps is directed by Rob Letterman, and is written by Scott Alexander, Carl Ellsworth, Larry Karaszewski and Darren Lemke, based on R.L Stine’s books. The cast includes Jack Black, Odeya Rush, Halston Sage, Ella Wahlestedt and Jillian Bell.

Expect to see the film in cinemas 10th February 2016.


Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
