Hannah’s father is the author of famous “Goosebumps” series and his names R.L. Stine who keeps all of the monsters of the series locked up in the books until Zach Cooper unintentionally unleashes them from the manuscript and they began to terrorize the town.
“All the early monsters that are in the books. The all came out; they’re all there. The real evil one is Slappy the Dummy, he’s there, the Abominable Snowman from Pasadena is there, and lawn gnomes, hundreds of lawn gnomes. They’re great, they’re really good.” R.L. Stine said.
