Posted ImagePosted Image

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 7, 2010) – Halloween comes early when two new collections of spooky Goosebumps® stories scream onto DVD September 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The Blob That Ate Everyone and Go Eat Worms! each feature three tales of horror based on author R.L. Stine’s best-selling Goosebumps books series, a global publishing phenomenon from Scholastic, Inc. that has sold over 300 million copies worldwide.

Making their DVD premiere, these haunting Goosebumps adventures include such spooky mysteries as an antique typewriter that makes every terrifying word come to life, a creepy piano teacher hiding a frightening secret, a magician with a horrifying bag of tricks, and a group of sinister lawn gnomes terrorizing the neighborhood. Plus, fans won’t be able to escape the story of the hungry and horrible blob that traps everyone in sight, not to mention the invading hoard of squirming worms that turn up in the most unlikely places. Each of these frightful DVDs includes three terrifying Goosebumps episodes and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98 U.S./$16.98 CAN. Prebook is July 28



The Blob That Ate Everyone 12-year-old Zack Beauchamp’s dream is to be a famous horror writer – even though he hasn’t quite gotten over his fear of the dark. He’s just written his scariest story ever about a giant pink, oozing, wet blob that terrorizes the neighborhood, swallowing up everything in sight. But when Zack starts typing his spooky story on the old typewriter he found, every hair-raising word begins to come true!

My Hairiest Adventure
Larry Boyd is having a bad day. He’s been chased by dogs, his band sounds pathetic, and his allergies seem to be getting worse. It’s not just a bad day, it’s a bad hair day...suddenly he is growing thick, long hair on his arms and legs. Even more troubling, his friends seem to be disappearing. Larry knows they never should have used that old bottle of Instant-Tan…could that have something to do with these strange occurrences? Can Hairy Larry get to the bottom of this before he ends up like the rest of his friends... hair one day, gone tomorrow?

Piano Lessons Can Be Murder
When Jerry finds a dusty old piano in the basement of his new house, his parents offer to pay for lessons. Taking piano seems like a cool idea if it means he’ll be able to jam with his cute next-door neighbor, Kim. But there’s something strange about Jerry’s piano teacher, Dr. Shreek. He is really creepy. Something Jerry can’t quite put his finger on. What’s more, Jerry begins receiving nightly visits from a terrifying ghost who warns him about the music school. When Jerry stumbles upon a secret room at Shreek’s school it is time for him to face the music.


Go Eat Worms!
Todd Bastrow is obsessed with worms. He loves to carry them around and torture his sister with them, dropping them into her long hair. That is, until Todd’s worms start playing tricks on their own. Suddenly, worms are making appearances in the most unlikely places - in his bed, in his homework, and - worst of all - in his spaghetti! It’s enough to make you squirm!

Bad Hare Day
“Pick a card, any card,” says Tim Swanson, an amateur magician who loves to perform magic tricks, especially before an enthusiastic audience. Someday, Tim hopes to be a real magician, as good as his idol, Amaz-O. But when Tim goes to Amaz-O’s magic show and participates in a disappearing act, he decides his hero is a total jerk! Tim steals Amaz-O’s secret bag of tricks. But he gets more than he bargained for - Amaz-O’s bag of tricks if full of live fluttering doves, hissing snakes...and one very angry rabbit!

Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes
Joe Burton’s dad loves tacky lawn ornaments - pink flamingos, plaster skunks, cement angels - nothing is too ridiculous for his yard. But, when Mr. Burton brings home two hideous lawn gnomes with tall, pointy hats and evil grins, it’s not just embarrassing, it’s spooky. Late at night, there’s creeping in the garden and eerie sounds - could those ugly lawn gnomes be alive?
