The HBO series will be titled Point Horror, and will be an anthology series described as a show that “exposes the horrors of being a teenager”. The show will take stories from many different novels in the series, but it’s rumored that most of the episodes will be based on Stine’s work.

 

 

John M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) is in talks to direct the pilot episode. Stine is set to executive produce.

4 of the Scariest ‘Goosebumps’ Books Ever

I am a huge fan of the Goosebumps books. I would borrow at least a couple at a time from my middle school’s library. Here is a list of some the scariest titles Stine has ever written.

 

4 – My Hairiest Adventure

How could you handle learning that your whole human life was a lie and that you were actually a dog all along? Move over M. Night, R.L. Stine is the real twist god.

 

3 – The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight

Farms are already way too big and the country gets way too dark to be living on them in my opinion. But scarecrows that are sentient? Count me out.

 

 

2 – The Haunted Mask

A terrifying mask that adheres to your face? Yeah, R.L. let’s just traumatize the youth of the world, why don’t cha?

 

1 – Night of The Living Dummy

Okay, this one, to this very day is the reason why I hate dummies. They are creepy to look at and are always given a silly voice but the fact that R.L. Stine had the audacity to make Slappy move, speak and cause mayhem tossed me over the edge of giving dummies a huge NOPE.

So that’s my list and if you want to relive your childhood more, you can watch the series. Some are up on Youtube to watch for free or if you have Netflix you can watch it all there.
