Horror Movies as Goosebumps Books

If, like me, you grew up reading Goosebumps books (Ermahgerd!) there’s a new Tumblr blog that’s right up your alley. It’s called¬†If it Were Stine, and its basic premise is to take horror movies of yore (and not so yore) and turn them into Goosebump book covers. Written and designed by Theodore Holmstead-Scott and Jude Deluca, the tagline reads, “Ancient classics and modern masterpieces of horror as seen through the neon-green, pun-dripping lense of R.L. Stine’s beloved ‘Goosebumps’ series.” And that’s exactly what they’ve done so perfectly. It’s the puns that really made the Goosebumps series so delightful. I’ve collected a few of my favourites here, but for the full series check out the Tumblr.
