A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R. L. Stine after the writer's imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware.
Jack Black was cast as R.L. Stine cause of his performance in The Lewis Lectures (2002) which was a pilot made by the film's production company Scholastic's animation division Soup2Nuts.
So, how did you...
Hannah: The cellar doors. I disconnected the alarm months ago.
Zach Cooper: Jeez... and I thought my house was a prison.
Hannah: You should try being homeschooled.
When Zach first enters Stine's Basement he is scared by a cuckoo. The cuckoo cuckoos four times but the hands on the clock show 2 o'clock. In R. L. Stine's 'The Cuckoo Clock of Doom', main character Michael Webster travels back in time and messes up the space-time continuum.
Tim Jacobus's Goosebumps cover artwork is used in the ending credits.
