We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween follows the Quinn family – high school senior SARAH (Madison Iseman), her middle school brother SONNY (Jeremy Ray Taylor), and their mother KATHY (Wendi McLendon-Covey) — into an entirely new set of spooky, exciting, and funny events. Sonny and schoolmate SAM (Caleel Harris) are best friends with a side job as the “Junk Brothers,” collecting discarded stuff other people don’t want. But it’s a gig that unfortunately leads them right into the path of (gulp) SLAPPY (Avery Lee Jones), the mischievous ventriloquist dummy from an unpublished Goosebumps book.

At first, Slappy seems to want nothing more than to be part of the Quinn family, but when his hijinks go too far, Sarah, Sonny and Sam realize that this pernicious puppet must be stopped. Rejected in his obsessive need to be a member of the Quinn household, Slappy decides to build his own “family” by kidnapping Kathy and bringing all of his Halloween friends back to life – including new right-hand Ogre WALTER (Chris Parnell).

As Halloween transforms their sleepy town into a full-on monster mash-up, boasting such hilariously freaky creatures as giant gummy bears and creepy garden gnomes, Sarah, the boys, and neighbor MR. CHU (Ken Jeong) team up to save Kathy and the town from Slappy’s wicked plan.
