While for the first Goosebumps episode I couldn’t resist the unique allure of “It Came From Beneath The Sink,” this second time I went for what looked like the scariest of the bunch– “Night of the Living Dummy II.” There is no “Night of the Living Dummy I” so this isn’t an origin story here. This is just a straight-up kids slasher. That means the only thing that gets slashed is young Amy’s reputation. Still, I have to say that, compared to the alien sponge storyline, the dummy one was much more legit. There were definite creepy parts and its pacing was much better. I mean, you have to work to make dummies not scary. And this dummy (both of them in fact) was definitely scary. Take a look and witness the ventrilo-tastical reign of terror Slappy lets loose on a normal, relatively happy suburban family. JUST. LIKE. YOURS…..
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.
