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, and makes a quick friend in Champ (Ryan Lee). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah’s mysterious dad is in fact R.L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestsellingGoosebumps series. As Zach starts learning about the strange family next door, he soon discovers that Stine holds a dangerous secret: the creatures that his stories made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Stine’s creations are unintentionally released from their manuscripts, Zach’s life takes a turn for the weird. In a crazy night of adventure, it’s up to Zach, Hannah, Champ, and Stine to team up and get all of these figments of Stine’s imagination – including Slappy the Dummy, the girl with the haunted mask, the gnomes and many more – back in the books where they belong to save the town.
SLAPPY THE DUMMYSlappy was carved out of coffin wood by an ancient sorcerer. When the sorcerer died, he placed his soul inside the dummy, waiting for the day he will awaken again when someone says the magic words, which are written in a card kept in Slappy’s pocket, “Karru marri odonna loma molonu karrano” which translates to, “You and I are one, now.”

WILL BLAKE’S WEREWOLF FORM
Will has always been terrorizing Fever Swamp as a werewolf. He is really vicious and will always attack any living creature that is in sight. In his human form, Will seemed quite friendly and has a fair bit of humor in him. He has a very strong knowledge of Fever Swamp and its history and he likes exploring the swamp itself. Like everyone else in his neighborhood, he has never fully met the swamp hermit, but he thinks he is weird.
THE GIANT PRAYING MANTIS
He’s fifty-foot tall, with a silver body (green body in the movie), with long arms and legs. He has a mouth full of sharp teeth and a big, flat tongue with saliva that is like hot tar. He lives in the “Cave of The Living Creeps” in Shock Street, along with other 5 giant praying mantises. The mantises, like everything in Shock Street, are actually animatronics.
Count Nightwing acts in exactly a way a vampire would act. He is highly fearsome and has a real craving for blood. And he has a special need for VAMPIRE BREATH as it does everything for him like every other vampire. He was very mistreating to Gwendolyn, as he had made her a slave rather than join the other vampires. He has very little patience and never likes to be kept waiting and he will get really mean if he is kept waiting for too long.
