goosebumpslongThis Halloween film is that rare beast: a fun, scary movie for kids that won’t actually terrify them. Based on R.L. Stine’s popular children’s horror book series, the Story begins with best friends Sam and Sonny discovering a mysterious book and ventriloquist dummy in an abandoned house. When the puppet comes to life, it doesn’t take long to realize that “Slappy” has bad intentions; he soon unleashes Halloween decorations as weapons of destruction, creating a monster mash that overtakes the town.

And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man’s wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.
