With over 300 million books sold, R.L. Stine’s wildly successful children’s stories ( ) come to life with two all-new terrifying tales.  First, Attack of the Mutant includes “Attack of the Mutant Parts 1 & 2” and follows Skipper Matthews and his awesome comic book collection.  Skipper’s favorite is The Masked Mutant, the story of an evil, power-mad super villain who is out to gain control of the universe.  One day, while lost in a strange part of town, Skipper discovers a building that mysteriously resembles the Mutant’s secret headquarters... a building that magically disappears.  Has Skipper read one too many comic books?  Or does The Masked Mutant really exist?  The DVD also features “Phantom of the Auditorium™,” a frightening story about a young actress who is thrilled after winning the lead in the school play... until the nightmares begin as there is talk of a real phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years. Next, Ghost Beach includes “The Barking Ghost” and follows Cooper Holmes, a young man who is scared of just about everything.  His father says he’s the only kid to scare himself on Halloween!  But as he moves into a new house, this time Cooper is not just scared of his own shadow.  In “Be Careful What You Wish For,” class klutz Samantha Byrd is the laughingstock of the girls’ basketball team.  But now, Samantha has found someone who will grant her three wishes.  Too bad she wasn’t more careful as now Sam’s wishes are turning her life into a living nightmare!  Lastly, “Ghost Beach” focuses on Jerry, who is thrilled by the prospect of exploring the dark, eerie old cave he discovered down by the beach.  When he hears the story of a 300-year-old ghost living inside, Jerry must decide if he will believe the legend or dismiss it as a silly made-up tale.

My Thoughts:
Here is what I thought. I thought that it was supper strange that I received these DVDs in the mail on Monday when I got home from the Librerey with my 6 year old son. Reason I think it was so STRANGE, was because he asked me if we could get a few Goosebump Books while were were their. I had to tell him no because of 2 reasons. 1) being I just don't think he can read this book to me and I just don't have time to read it to him and 2) I was not sure he was ready for this type of book. I did tell him he would have to ask his dad, and if he said he had time to read to him then great he could get them.  Well when we opened the box and saw those it was like his birthday had came. He has been watching both or 1 of them each day since. So I think its a hit. I do wish that they were a little better played out, meaning I wish that they had a bigger budget like they do for the BIG hits. But other then that I can not complain. My 3 boys have sat down and watched them quietly. They have been a treat at the end of the day for my 6 year old after he has done his school work.  Now for my 6 year old thoughts when asked-  He said he thinks that they are the best movies he ever saw in his life. He thinks that they are the best. I like the Masked Mutant the most! So there you go, I think that my son gives it 5 thumbs up and mom gives it 4.

Thank you  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for the DVDs to review.
