Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Trivia: Originally, this sequel was going to include all three main characters from the first film. However, due to scheduling conflicts with actors Jack Black, Dylan Minette and Odeya Rush, none were available and the script was re-written to focus on new characters. Black was later able to eventually free up enough time to appear in an extended cameo role, with several short scenes in the film's second half.


Trivia: When RL Stein gets out of his his car he sees a red balloon floating near a sewer vent and he says something along the line of, "I knew it! I did it first!" This is a reference to Stephen king's IT. Also Jeremy Ray Taylor, who plays Sonny in this film, played Ben Hanscom in the 2017 remake of IT.


Trivia: The real RL Stein makes a cameo appearance as the principal Mr. Harrison who presents Sonny with his science award at the end of the film.


Trivia: The original title for the film was "Goosebumps: HorrorLand," which was based on the original script, which would have been a different story set in a haunted theme-park populated by "Goosebumps" monsters. The script was eventually re-written to be a smaller, lower-budgeted story. The film was then retitled "Goosebumps: Slappy's Revenge." Finally, it was retitled again to its current title "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween." (Although oddly enough, home video releases for the movie have dropped "Haunted Halloween" from the title and simply market the film under a much simpler fourth title - "Goosebumps 2").


Other mistake: After Sarah gets Slappy into the locker he could see Tyler from inside but the problem is that the angle and the height of the vents are wrong for that perspective.
