Based on the insanely popular series of horror for kids books by R.L. Stine, this new film takes a meta approach to the material with the new kid in the neighborhood discovering that his next door neighbor (Jack Black) is in fact the author of the books. And then he accidentally releases all of his creations into the real world. Don’t ask. But Chris, Beau, JC, and Sarah will tell you anyway.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Why is R.L Stine one of the characters in this movie? It’s like having Stephen King as one the characters in Carrie.

    Why not turn the books into a weekly series on T.V.? I thought Are You Afraid Of The Dark was scary when I was a kid. Nick at Night anyone?

  • Andre Garcia

    I’m surprised they didn’t mention the Invisible Boy.
