Goosebumps stars Dylan Minnette and Ryan Lee stopped by our office and chatted about why fans are going to absolutely love the movie, dished on some spooky moments during filming and even their reaction when seeing the final footage!
Dylan told us he has been a fan of the Goosebumps book series forever but he said even people who haven’t read the books are guaranteed to enjoy the movie! “It’s definitely not a movie that just caters towards the fans,” he shared, “I think that everybody can go in and enjoy it cause there’s comedy for kids and for adults and there’s scares for kids and adults. There’s something for everyone in every category in every genre too - there’s romance, comedy, scares, it’s great.” Wow, so much info – we can’t wait to see it!
We have to admit, Goosebumps can be a bit intimidating to watch but Ryan dished that even the actors got spooked on set. “I mean, the graveyard would probably be the scariest location we filmed at.” Dylan chimed in, “It was spooky but it was fun just filming in a cemetery at night, it was kind of cool.” Ah! This is giving us goose bumps just thinking about it - LOL!
Dylan even mentioned that he felt “kind of off” when he had to go running through the graveyard stepping on all of the grave stones but when he saw the final movie footage it was worth it! He says, “There’s a lot of scenes where there’s visual effects and there was nothing in front of us but now when we see what they’ve made, it’s really cool with these giant monsters.” He joked and let us know if REAL monsters were in front of him maybe he would have reacted bigger than he did! (We’re thinking his reaction was perfect!)
The boys sound like they had an awesome experience filming the movie and we can’t wait to see it when it hits theaters! Will you go see the movie, Goosebumps? Let us know in the comments!
