As noted by Ed Mazza of The Huffington Post, Stine has tried this style before – in 2012, he wrote a creepy story for the Halloween season and earlier that year, he tweeted a story.

Stine published the book “Party Games” this past September and a movie based on the “Goosebumps” series, which stars actor Jack Black as a fictional version of the author, “The Giver” actress Odeya Rush as his daughter Hannah, and Dylan Minnette of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” as Hannah’s friend Zach. Zach accidentally frees the scary creatures about which Stine writes from Stine’s books and the three must work to send them back. It’s due to be released this August, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
