GOOSEBUMPS 2: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN is a horror adventure in which three teens must stop an evil dummy intent on bringing Halloween creatures to life.

Threat

There are frequent scary scenes involving horror creatures, including a ventriloquist dummy, witches, skeletons, a werewolf, pumpkins, and a giant spider made from balloons. In one scene, the dummy watches a teenage girl as she sleeps, and attempts to turn the lead characters' mother into a dummy. There are also brief jump scares and extended action sequences in which the heroes fight or run from scary creatures. However, these scenes focus on action and excitement with elements of humour, and although the heroes are occasionally scared the emphasis remains on their resourcefulness, bravery and teamwork.

There is occasional very mild bad language, infrequent scenes of bullying, and very mild innuendo.
