Halloween comes to life in a comedy adventure based on R.L. Stine's 400-million-selling series of books.
Adventure Comedy Fantasy - Like the first film, this is a family-targeted horror comedy based on
the best selling youth horror novel series. Fans of Jack Black may
be disappointed by his very limited screen time, with a number of new
actors and characters the focus this time. While aimed at kids,
there are some scary moments that would be intense for the youngest

PROFANITY: A few miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights with people and monsters, generally played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Very brief alcohol. ACTION: Fights, chases, explosions. COMEDY: Silly sight gags, banter, and wisecracks, often darkly humorous.
Roger EbertFull Review Good This sequel, with only a brief appearance by Black, is blander, with lower-wattage talent on and behind the screen. But the special effects are still top-notch and it is a pleasant little scare-fest for the Halloween season.
