Dare to enter a mysterious realm where the cost of admission just might be your soul. From the dark imagination of renowned author, R.L. Stine and starring Dove Cameron (Descendants), Katherine McNamara (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), Ryan McCarten (Liv and Maddie), and Tiffany Espensen(Kirby Buckets) comes an original chilling adventure. When a traveling Hall of Horrors show arrives in the town of Danville, high school friends can’t wait to get spooked. The monsters, zombies, and ghouls are completely lifelike, and the villainous showman, Dr. Hysteria, and his enchanting assistant, Lilith, really know how to turn up the scares. But when Beth discovers a haunted cabinet backstage that traps the souls of lost teens, it’s up to the gang to stop the mayhem before they are trapped forever.

Silly, scary ghoulfest has lots of peril, frights.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that R.L. Stine's Monsterville: Cabinet of Souls is clearly intended for savvy kids who enjoy the creepy thrills of overblown monsters popping out from behind curtains, cartoonish demons who possess the innocent, and mustache-twirling villains of immortal proportions. Along with the usual teens-under-siege story line -- in this tale, they're all drawn to an ominous haunted house -- the array of ghouls is all-encompassing: beasts, vampires, zombies, witches, a macabre clown, ghosts, and a chain-saw-wielding giant. The heroes are chased, find themselves trapped in long shadowy halls, open a myriad of mysterious doors, are made to disappear, and fight for their lives against the onslaught of fiends who continually menace them. There's no real brutality here; it's all exaggerated gothic horror. Only the villains meet a ghostly end. To beef up the characters and the stakes, the filmmakers have included a sweet romance with a few kisses, a mildly sexy enchantress, and some teens struggling with their emotions and issues of conscience. Not for little ones.
