It's hard to fit in when you're new in school, and Cassie liked to scare. Cassie buys a book that has a warning not to read
allowed. When she ignores that warning to get back at her brother Max it unleashes the Evil Thing from the darkness and now
Max has been captured and if Cassie and Sean can't find out a way to kill the monster then Max and several others will be
fed to the Evil Thing's babies.
I never really got into Goosebumps, but this is more intense then Goosebumps. The monster was cool, the acting was great.
Emily Osment of Hannah Montana fame does a great job as Cassie. To be completely honest with you I didn't recognize her
at first when I saw the DVD cover. Now there are some minor character issues. Priscilla, the mean girl got annoying at times
and the kid that played Max. But was a minor complaint compared to the whole. 9 STARS.
I agree with Zedd, this is a great movie. But not a perfect movie I didn't care for the way they left it open, not to give
anything away. But I think that could have been better. But there is this great song by Emily Osment. 8 STARS.
