My family was so excited to hear that Goosebumps 2 was releasing from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment this Christmas via digital download. The first film was a lot of fun and we were eagerly anticipating the second but unfortunately never made it to the theater when it was playing. It arrives on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on January 15th! You can pre-order on Amazon.
Be careful what you wish for. With their after school junk business, best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash. But when cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a locked book that frees a supernatural nightmare- Slappy! Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium!
Based on the beloved Scholastic book series by R.L Stine, GOOSEBUMPS 2 was directed by Academy Award®-winner Ari Sandel (2005, Best Short Film-Live Action, West Bank Story) from a story by Rob Lieber and Darren Lemke and screenplay by Lieber. The film is produced by Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz and is executive produced by Timothy M. Bourne and Tania Landau. GOOSEBUMPS 2 is a Columbia Pictures, Scholastic Entertainment Inc./Silvertongue Films, Inc and Original Film production.
We received a fun box with lots of goodies including gummy bears (they come alive in the film), a locked treasure box to store our scary stories, party accessories and a Goosebumps 2 screener. After we watched the movie, we used one of the ideas that came with the package, Gummy Bear Slime! My daughter is addicted to slime and wanted to finally make one that is edible. Who knew?
This ‘slime’ is sticky. It is candy after all. So you’ll want to coat your surface and your hands with the corn starch to help prevent sticking. My daughter decided to add intact gummy bears for texture.
- 1 c Haribo gummy bears
- ⅓ c corn starch
- ⅓ c powdered sugar
- Combine corn starch and sugar in a small mixing bowl.
- Microwave gummy bears 10 seconds at a time until completely melted.
- Add a spoonful at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
- Stretch, poke and eat!
