Did you spend your tweens reading Goosebumps books and worrying what might be lurking under your bed/in your closet?

Then reader beware, you’re in for another scare – this time at the movies.

R. L. Stine’s creepy novels have been turned into a feature-length film, with School of Rock actor Jack Black signed on to play the author as his beasts come to life.

While many ’90s kids will remember being scared senseless after ready the haunting horror novels, the film directed by Shark Tale’s Rob Letterman appears to be more of a comedy.

The Goosebumps movie will follow Zach, a teenage boy who moves to a new town and befriends Stine’s fictional daughter, Hannah. When he accidentally releases all of the monsters contained in Stine’s books, the three of them must team up to save the day.

This is not the first time Hollywood has attempted to produce a Goosebumps movie. In 1998, gothic director Tim Burton signed on to produce a film but later quit because he didn’t feel like he could do the novels justice.

A four-season television version also aired from 1995 to 1998, but was frequently censored because it was deemed too scary for young viewers.

At the 2014 Comic-Con, Letterman and Black confirmed everyone favourite ghouls like the Scarecrow from The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight, Slappy the Dummy from Night of the Living Dummy and the Executioner from A Night in Terror Tower would feature in the film.

Letterman insisted the movie would still include some of Stine’s signature ghastliness despite being funny.

“The books themselves are legitimately scary, but they’re legitimately funny, and we try to capture that,” he said. “We never want to undercut the scares.”

Goosebumps is scheduled for release on October 16, 2015.
