In a now-deleted tweet shared by Comicbook.com, Stine wrote: “Happy to announce that filming has begun on the Goosebumps movie sequel. Title: Slappy Halloween. Meanwhile, the new Goosebumps SlappyWorld book has just been published.” 

The website also noted the movie's release date was recently set to Oct. 12, a date that doesn't seem likely anymore, considering filming has just started.

Slappy Halloween is based once again on Stine's horror stories, and the new film will feature one of the series' most terrifying villains: That's right, Slappy, the evil ventriloquist’s dummy.

Backstage reports Slappy is “hell-bent on jump-starting the Halloween apocalypse,” and the “three friends must stop the stuffed adversary before he ruins Halloween for good.”

Jack Black is set to reprise his role as Stine, and really, we're just ready to relive those spine-tingling moments we oh-so appreciated as children, all thanks to Stine's tales.
