Choosing which Goosebumps episode to Snapchat was more difficult than I expected, because I recognized so many titles from my questionable 6th grade reading choices! I almost went with the nightmare dummy Slappy, because dummies are horrifying, but at the last second I changed it to “It Came From Beneath The Sink” because:
1) I definitely read that as a kid and remember the cover image vividly for some reason (thanks brain),
2) the title is slightly porno-y (heh heh heh), and
3) I really, really wanted to see what they were going to do to make a sponge scary and how effective it might seem (Spoiler: not very). But in a way, that’s also part of the Goosebumps nostalgia — a mixture of curiosity, disgust and slight disappointment (also feelings associated with porn). Yet you always pick up another one….
Sometimes, certain movies don’t deserve a full review or a lovingly curated drinking game. No, instead they deserve a quick-n-dirty social media treatment on the quickest and dirtiest platform around: Snapchat. We watch, snap and comment, then repost the photos here. Just think of it as Masterpiece Science Theater 3000 for the Facebook generation.
