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.
Early in the film, Zach and Champ break into the basement of R.L. Stine's home. They come across a cuckoo clock. This, of course, is a reference to the book 'The Cuckoo Clock of Doom' by R.L. Stine.
The Abominable Snowman just crawl out of a book, that doesn't just happen!
R.L. Stine: You just released every monster I've ever created!
Champ: What was that?
R.L. Stine: It's the Invisible Boy.
R.L. Stine: Ah, he's such a crack up.
Lorraine has to walk very very slowly while bringing a drink for the poodle, lest she spills the water. But when she does spill some water due to seeing the dog levitate, she has to tip the bowl a long way over since it was almost empty.
Tim Jacobus's Goosebumps cover artwork is used in the ending credits.
The Blu-Ray included an alternate opening. In this scene, two movers ([[Kumail Nanjiani]] and [[Luka Jones]]) from the moving company "Bannerman & Sons" look in the trunk of their moving truck to investigate a sound. When they find Slappy, one of them quotes "It's just a ventriloquist's dummy." Slappy then moves and quotes "Who are you calling dummy....Dummy." The two men scream as the trunk closes.
