    Did anyone in Goosebumps stories ever just get straight up murdered?

    Like, I remember it being all obscure mask possession and large mutant insects and creepy dummies, but did anyone ever just get stabbed or crushed to death or eaten by a spooky cannibal or anything?

    I remember a thing where an abandoned amusement-park's ferris-wheel sometimes worked, and if someone got on they just didn't come out and the ferris-wheel stopped existing again.

    You know the worst episodes of the goosebumps show were the "oh they were aliens all along but we had to make them people to preserve the twist" ones

    I liked the one where the monster in the closet was a human and the world was already aliens, even if the effects were horrible and the acting was horrible and it made zero sense.

    I mean, it was fine. Considering that the actual scariest theme park CYOA had already been written several years before.

    The person on the left probably had to buy a Daredevil Park shirt at the Daredevil Park because the shirt he brought got wet at Splash Mountain

    It works great in that book because they never describe how anyone looks and the monster is invisible so its a fun twist. So seriously tragic.

    It weird that kid was the sequel hook villian in the movie though. He wasnt evil.

    Bring back the CYOA forum, imo

    At one point I also had a CYOA style book where you didn't choose, you rolled a D6. I have no idea where that book or the die is now.

    ya'll ever think about that one Goosebumps CYOA book in an amusement park

    where you get a bad end that has you sliding down an infinite slide until all the lights slowly go out

    and you just

    keep sliding

    forever

    Sometimes I wonder whether the Goosebumps point+click adventure game deliberately hung whilst I tried to get to the other side of those slides, or whether the computer just crashed.

    Also how you got past the supernatural gas turning the natural gas firewall back on.

    Neil Patrick Harris made his autobiography a CYOA.

    I remember this book.

    I don't remember that ending though. If I'm being completely honest, childhood me would peek at all options when given a choice. If one seemed like it was death from a quick skim, I would pick otherwise.

    Oh maaaan the haunted theme park was one of my favorite Goosebump books! And for some reason also the scariest to me? Some of the books didn't bother me, the endings were too goofy/jokey and not actually frightening. But man, I distinctly remember waking up in bed after a nightmare or two from reading that book.

    the thing about goosebumps was that they were so UNEVEN in terms of scariness.
    most of them were incredibly tame, some were kinda scary, and a few were really intense if they hit your specific fears.

    How to Kill a Monster scared the shit out of me as a child, as did The Beast From the East.

    The best Goosebumps book was the one where she turned into a bird at the end and the last sentence was, like, "So I ate a worm and it tasted good, the end."

    I once had to write a scary story in primary school and I wrote one about a piano with teeth (actually the one in Super Mario 64) and my teacher thought it was too bizarre

    There's a very good John Finnemore sketch about a magical piano

    Which is annoyingly unavailable online

    I read a bunch of those CYOA Goosebumps books but I guess I was too old for them to leave an impression on my psyche. I just remember the one with a genie where you can pull the "I wish for infinite wishes" trick and it works, the genie's like, "Oh you got me."

    I read the genie one it was a genie in a soda can right?

    I only remember the ending where the character wish's to be rich then goes into a store like a dipstick and goes "FREE SHOES FOR EVERYONE." And then gets arrested for not having enough money on him to pay for literally every pair of shoes in the store cause like everyone saw this random kid go "Hey free shoes." and just grabbed shoes and booked it apparently.

    Goosebump books are weird.

    Beast from the East still haunts me to this day, probably 25 years after I read it. A game with rules you have no idea about, where you will die if you lose, playing against literal monsters. And then just when you think you accidentally came out ahead, you find out you actually just upped the difficulty. Fucking terrifying.

    Isn't that the one where you can fuck up and get your mom trapped in the soda can as the new genie

    Man that was weird
