* Also in ''The Curse of Camp Cold Lake'', at first you think the girl on the cover is supposed to be Della, the ghost girl that torments poor Sarah Maas all story long. Until you read and find Della looks perfectly normal but is transparent (plus, she died when she ran into the woods and got bitten by snakes. No one has ever died in the lakes of Camp Cold Lake because the counselors impose a buttload of water safety rules. This girl is not transparent and looks like a [[DistaffCounterpart female version of the Skin Taker from]] ''DarthWiki/CandleCove.'' The ending implies that Sarah is killed by Brinna in the MandatoryTwistEnding, though Sarah was also killed by a snake, because the story ended with Brinna holding a poisonous snake and asking Sarah to be her buddy.

* At the end of ''Be Careful What You Wish For'', everyone's going to start wondering what exactly happened to Samantha, since obviously nobody would believe the real story. The police are probably going to get called in, and what will they learn? That Samantha disappeared after a school day where Judith was bullying her particularly badly (since time got reset). At the very least, everyone's going to think that Judith drove her to suicide, or may have even done something to her. It's hard to imagine that Judith will come out of that too well, [[KickTheSonOfABitch so her]] KarmaHoudini [[KickTheSonOfABitch status may actually be short-lived.]]

* Gary from "Why I'm Afraid of Bees" is turned into a [[BalefulPolymorph worker bee]] with a stinger, which doesn't seem that terrible until you realize that [[GenderBender only female bees can sting...]]

\n** Furthermore Hannah is presented with curly hair and a pale complexion [[spoiler: which lets people know she's a ghost.]] In the end, [[spoiler: when she is released from the book]], she has a tan and straight hair, revealing [[spoiler: she was rewritten as a human.]]

* Seeing how Rip has been alive for a long time in ''Cry of the Cat'', it makes you wonder if Rip has had any other targets than Allison, Crystal, and her mother.

* The beasts in ''The Beast From The East'' are cannibals. Since they presumably don't always have unsuspecting lost children to play with, and since ''someone'' has to be the loser of each game, we can assume they eat each other.

Added DiffLines:

* ''How I Learned To Fly'' is more fantasy adventure fable than "horror", but than you have the government agents who are after the flying formula for military use. They never call off their mission, and by the end, Wilson is still famous for his flying abilities. He'll be hounded not only by the media, but by scientists and agents who are determined to exploit him for his powers, possibly to the point of drafting him as a SuperSoldier, or [[TheyWouldCutYouUp a guinea pig for experiments.]] And now that he's famous, how will he hide from them? Wilson pretty much has the choice of living in complete seclusion, or being used as a weapon by a sinister government. CelebrityIsOverrated,indeed.

* ''The Barking Ghost'' has a twist ending in which [[spoiler:Cooper and Margaret are turned into squirrels]]. This might not seem scary at first [[FridgeHorror until you realize]] [[spoiler:squirrels only live for about ten years, so R. L. Stine essentially sentenced the protagonists to an early death]].

* The name Hannah is a palindrome - as in it reads the same backwards. It turns into a MeaningfulName for Stine's daughter since [[spoiler: she's only a character in his books, who has an endless loop of sixteenth birthdays]].

Added DiffLines:

* Getting rid of all the monsters required writing a single Goosebumps book that would capture them all. R.L. Stine may be writing incredibly fast (writing an entire book in a few hours?), but he had all the inspiration he needed - he wrote the adventure he just went through. Of course, it helps that this adventure contained multiple moments of quick scares similar to the endings of chapters in regular Goosebumps books! "Something grabbed Hannah? No, wait, it's a statue" is only one such example.
