Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween: Watch Slappy the Dummy Doing Childish Things

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween could be a second family-centric horror treat after the 2015 movie Goosebumps, if it is able to entertain like its prequel. A sequel to Goosebumps, the movie retains the character of Slappy the Dummy, the evil ventriloquist dummy and the story is woven around this character.

The title of the book is Haunted Halloween and Slappy the Dummy is its main character. The boys open the manuscript out of curiosity and surprise. The Slappy comes out of the book and becomes a real-life figure. Also, he brings all his ghoulish friends and characters of the book from oblivion. Slappy has an evil plan of ruling the world with the help of monsters and witches. He executes his plan with capturing Sonny’s mother. Sonny and his sister Sarah try to free their mom. Sam is there to help and they also get help from a kind neighbor.
