    Never felt like I’ve wasted time watching a movie as much as this one. Gave it about a half hour to 45 minutes and it never picked up. Despite I knew it could only get better I had no problem shutting it off knowing it could still take another 15-20 minutes. I can’t imagine a lot of people actually still had interest at that point.

    This movie is basically what happens when you take a beloved children's book and shit all over it.
    I loved these books as a little kid this movie doesn't do these books justice

    Me and my friends in elementary school were horrified but also laughing hysterically and it also kind of ruined our lives because they were so hunting

    Just watched it last night and I liked it for what it was. Since I knew the books were geared towards young adults I knew the movie would be the same. I hope there will be a part 2.

    I'm late to the party. I just watched it but the red room wasn't shoehorned in. He saw a red room with pale lady in it when he first went in the house at the beginning

    I’m 13. Just watched this with my bff, no adults. Fight me. But, I’ve seen some scary movies and even brutal stuff that’s real videos. Not too creepy but I did find myself caring about the characters that made it farther into the movie and I think the special effects and makeup were great. The movie was able to make me feel a bit uncomfortable at times but not too scary since it’s a movie. I give it 7.5/10.

    Never have I ever seen such bad performances, it's annoying. The only good thing about this crap are the monsters.

    I'm surprised the word "stranger things" or "it" wasn't throwing around? I thought for sure you would bring something like that up. I haven't seen the movie I'm about to see it that's why I'm watching this review. But from the trailers it looks a lot like it or stranger things type of feel to it?

    This was honestly dissapointing because it wasnt what i thought. Didnt know it was PG 13 til i went to see it. That was a downside i expected more of an R rated Stranger Things/Goosebumps/ Darkness Falls/Woman in Black type thing. I like the Sara Bellows part cuz imma backstory horrific experiences exposition type person. Like the story behind the woman in black. Overall ill give it a B- i did cringe at some horror & thought the acting was great.

    I love the movie because the way it builds each character. The screenplay pace is very good. And the jumpscare tension build up is so long I almost thought it was impossible to pulled it and yet it delivered so well.

    This had an R16 rating in New Zealand. The movie has nothing in it to warrant such a rating and made it more disappointing to sit through. More like an annoying kiddy movie that followed very boring protagonists.

    I actually got into these book series when I was in elementary school they had the books and computer audio books with pictures that you can follow along but I love these book series and the movie was great 👍

    Your review of this is perfect. From the description of why you were worried about the movie running your childhood memory of this series.i ignored this because of goosebumps but I'm now excited to see this.

    I’ve seen the autopsy of Jane Doe. Good movie. When my friend Elizabeth and I went and saw this in theaters we really liked it. I was amazed how they made the monsters or whatever you want to call them look exactly like the ones from the books. Wow!

    Does anyone remember a large orange book with black letters that was full of scary stories? Anyone know the name? The only story I remember was of a girl dancing with a man at a party and it turns out it was the devil and he danced her to death.
