Visual effects are highly employed and co-presented by Sony Pictures Animation banner. The director Rob Letterman has done his animation works with Shark Tale and Monsters vs Aliens.

Goosebumps is more than just a story with virtual creatures. It gives feeling as if it is a movie from 80s specific niche with kid adventure films. A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Shining are less of a kid friendly movies.
