25 'Goosebumps' Books Referenced In the Upcoming Movie

Calling All Creeps!

A common moral of the Goosebumps books is that pranks and practical jokes can have terrible outcomes, and this is definitely the case with "Calling All Creeps!" The main character's attempt to get "creeps" to call up a mean girl at school accidentally draws the attention of a group of purple lizard monsters. At the 2014 Comic-Con, a Creep was one of the creatures that ended up dragging Black off stage after the Goosebumps panel.

The Cuckoo Clock of Doom

Another revenge story gone wrong, this story is about a boy who tries to get back at his bratty little sister by sabotaging their father's precious cuckoo clock and framing her for it. Unfortunately, the action sends him hurtling back in time, waking up in a younger and younger body every day and forced to relive some of the worst days of his childhood. In one of the teaser scenes that's been shown for Goosebumps, Zach and his friends get spooked by a similar cuckoo clock in Stine's house.

The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

One of the very first Goosebumps books, and easily one of the best-remembered, "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" follows young protagonist Gabe to Egypt, where his Uncle Ben is working on an archaeological excavation of one of the Great Pyramids. Do the mummies come to life? Of course they do, and a mummy is among the mob of monsters seen marching around Greenland in the trailer.

The Creepy Creations of Professor Shock

Another entry in the Give Yourself Goosebumps series, "The Creepy Creations of Professor Shock" starts out with the simple chore of cleaning out the garage of an inventor... until, of course, the reader starts messing with his inventions. Professor Shock was also among the characters who dragged Black away at the 2014 Comic-Con, and you can spot him in the new trailer as well.

Deep in the Jungle of Doom

It's back to the world of Give Yourself Goosebumps for "Deep in the Jungle of Doom", which is donating at least two creatures to the Goosebumps movie: a Muglani Witch Doctor and Cronby the Troll. Both of these characters were seen at the 2014 Comic-Con. Cronby loves asking Goosebumps trivia questions, but luckily Zach's best friend (Ryan Lee) has an encyclopedic knowledge of the books.
