You know its about half way though October when there is more than one spooky or horror movie out each week for the next few weeks. And of course Goosebumps; logically when else would that be released?

Might as well start with Goosebumps, the 1992 book series turned movie. When teenage Zach moves from a city to a small town he immediately runs out of things to do and naturally doesn't want to be there. That is until he meets his neighbor Hannah whose father turns out to be the famous author of the Goosebumps series, R.L. Stine (Jack Black). When Zach opens up a book in Stine's library, he finds out that the monsters in the books are very real and have now escaped because of the open book. Zach, Hannah, and Stine need to team together to recapture the monsters that are now terrorizing their town. Critics are calling Goosebumps filled with the same spooky charm as the books but the plot moves at too much of a frantic pace. However with a 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it seems there is more good to this movie then bad.

For the next Halloween season movie, Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak. After a woman is swept off her feet by a suave stranger she is brought to a enormous house filled with dark secrets. The house is home to many horrifying things including those from another realm. With a rating of 68% on Rotten Tomatoes it just squeaks by for a positive review. Critics seems to be split on the depiction of the monsters. Some say they are too visible and the suspense doesn't last long at all where others call the movie a 'visual feat.' What everyone can agree on, though, is that the atmosphere is properly spooky and it will make you jump.

And now for something completely different. Steven Spielberg directs Tom Hanks in the cold war political drama Bridge of Spies. Hanks plays an American attorney sent to negotiate the return of a pilot who was shot down and captured over Russia. Hanks' character must put his life on the line in order to visit and make these negotiations in a way that politicians cannot. With a fresh rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, this one is my pick. Critics are expecting this to be one of the top movies of the year and are also saying that Tom Hanks really shines in this role.

Check out the trailers below and as always until next week, we'll MEAT at the movies!
