Meet Goosebumps author R. L. Stine

Are you a fan of the spooky and silly? Then you’re going to love the new movie Mostly Ghostly: Have You Met My Ghoulfriend? (rated PG). It’s based on the book series of the same name, written by Goosebumps author R. L. Stine. The movie stars Bella Thorne (from Shake It Up), Calum Worthy (from Austin & Ally), Madison Pettis, Roshon Fegan, and Ryan Ochoa.  Ryan plays Max, a boy who’s finally gotten his crush Cammy (played by Bella) to go with him on a date. What could possibly go wrong? Well, when evil ghosts, ghouls, and other sinister creatures get involved, a LOT does. It’s up to Max and his ghostly friends Tara (played by Madison) and Nicky (played by Roshon) to set things right in time for Max’s big date on Halloween!
