Revealing Mistakes
At the end of the movie, R L Stine walks by his typewriter in a locked glass case as it begins to type. It is then revealed that the Invisible Boy was typing and you see his hand-print on the glass from outside of the case. R L Stine turns around and screams seeing that the Invisible Boy is behind him. It isn't possible for the Invisible Boy to be out of the case but is able to type through the glass.

Factual Mistake
Supposedly they are from New York. New York requires a front license plate as well as a back one. You never see a front license plate on their car. You can also see New York Inspection & Registration stickers on lower driver's side of windshield.

Factual Mistake
The tooth fillings that a character wears are not actually made of silver. Silver tooth fillings are only called that due to the silver appearance, and are actually made of Amalgam. As a result, he should not have been able to stop The Werewolf.
After teaching his first class as an English professor, Jack Black (as R.L. Stine) passes another faculty member in the hall who greets Black by saying, "Hello, Mr. Stine." Black replies, "Hello, Mr. Black," and then tells Zach that Mr. Black is the new drama teacher, which is a nod to Jack Black's 2003 film, School of Rock. The actor playing Mr. Black is R.L. Stine himself.

As R.L. Stine searches the high school for a quiet place to write his new story, he discovers an empty theater auditorium where the high school theater department had been rehearsing a stage production of Stephen King's "The Shining." The stage set is built to resemble the hotel room. This is a multi-layered visual gag as it references jokes made earlier in the film, when Stine reacts to being compared to "Steve King," and also references the fact that "The Shining" follows a writer in a hotel room.

In the movie R.L Stine can writes his stories on a typewriter and they come true. At the end Zach must finish the story on the typewriter to come true. This is similar to one of R.L Stine's real books "The Blob That Ate Everyone" where the main character Zackie has a typewriter that makes his horror stories come true.

Hannah (Odeya Rush) is the Goosebumps character Hannah Fairchild from the book The Ghost Next Door. The plot revolved around Hannah suspecting her next door neighbor was a ghost when in reality, she and her family were ghosts.

The alias "Mr. Shivers" before revealing himself as R.L. Stine (Jack Black) may be a nod to the Shivers novel series by M.D. Spenser, which was created after the popularity of the Goosebumps novels.

In real life, R.L. Stine has a son named Matthew.

The film was going to release on 7th August 2015 but was moved to 16th October 2015.

R.L. Stine makes an appearance at the end of the movie, when passing by Jack Black, saying "Hello, Mr. Stine.", which he replies, "Hello, Mr. Black."

Dylan Minnette, who plays Zach Cooper, coincidentally plays a boy named Anthony Cooper in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (2014).

The only "monster" characters in the film with spoken lines (Slappy the ventriloquist dummy and the invisible boy) are both voiced by Jack Black.

A member of the marketing team commented on the first Goosebumps poster, saying that the marketing team wanted to make the poster unique, yet pay homage to the original television series. This explains why the poster uses a unique blue and gold coloring, along with the "Goosebumps" logo being yellow.

During the 1990s, George A. Romero was hired to adapt the book series into a single film and even finished a draft.

Jack Black portrays R.L. Stine in the film, while the actual R. L. Stine makes a cameo appearance. Playing a teacher, he passes by Stine (Jack Black) and acknowledges him, saying "Mr. Stine." Jack Black acknowledges him and responds "Mr. Black."

This film is based on a young adult horror anthology book series of the same name.

A portion of the movie was filmed in the small town of Madison, GA. This town was voted best small town in America and is a big spot for filming in recent years.

Even though Dylan Minnette plays the older brother of Ryan Lee's character, Lee is actually more than 2 months older than Minnette.

The film was going to release on 7th August 2015 but was moved to 17th October 2015.

Had to briefly delay filming in certain areas of New Orleans, LA in April 2014 due to the ongoing WWE Wrestlemania XXX festivities.

Tim Burton was originally going to produce the film in 1998, and was attached to it. However, the project fell through.

A crew of six specialists spent three days gathering visual data for the film in downtown Madison, Georgia for this movie. The crew used a theodolite to collect points in three-dimensional space to complete a detailed survey of the city. The visual data was used to create a CGI background of the downtown
