Incredibles 2 picture

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween picture

Trivia: The original title for the film was "Goosebumps: HorrorLand," which was based on the original script, which would have been a different story set in a haunted theme-park populated by "Goosebumps" monsters. The script was eventually re-written to be a smaller, lower-budgeted story. The film was then retitled "Goosebumps: Slappy's Revenge." Finally, it was retitled again to its current title "Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween." (Although oddly enough, home video releases for the movie have dropped "Haunted Halloween" from the title and simply market the film under a much simpler fourth title - "Goosebumps 2").
