* DevelopmentHell: The Goosebumps movie was hinted at waaay back in the year 1997 when the series was at the height of its popularity but apparently had trouble getting financial backing at the time (Creator/20thCenturyFox was going through a turbulent time at the turn of the century; indeed, Creator/FoxKids got shut down in 2002, but for mainly unrelated reasons). The movie wound up shelved when the TV series was cancelled and the waning of interest in the series. It wouldn't be until 17 years later that they finally got it off the ground.

** ''Full Moon Fever'' borrows most of its plot from ''Chicken Chicken'' -- the protagonists, one boy and one girl, tick off an old lady and subsequently find themselves [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into animals.]]

** ''Full Moon Fever'' borrows most of its plot from ''Chicken Chicken'' -- the protagonists, one boy and one girl, tick off an old lady and subsequently find themselves [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into animals.]]]] It also resembles a short story, "Pumpkin Juice" (from ''Still More Tales to Give You Goosebumps''), where the protagonists turn into hungry werewolves after ingesting a strange food.
** Similarly, ''Cry of the Cat'' is an expanded version of the short story "The Cat's Tale" from ''More Tales to Give You Goosebumps''.

*DeletedScenes: A bunch for the 2015 film appear on the Blu-Ray:
** An alternate opening showing Stine moving from his previous home in the middle of the night. The scene was actually used as the prologue of the prequel video game.
** Zack's first day of school, where he gets on a football player's bad side (the same player [[spoiler:is the boyfriend of Champ's love interest and bails on her when encountering the werewolf]]) and meets Champ.
** A brief confrontation between Zack and his mother after the police visit at Stine's home over moving to Madison.
** Stine's visit to the police station, where he finds out Zack prank called him.
** Aunt Lorraine finding out Zack has gone from his room before finding Fifi on the doorstep.
** A brief exchange in the Wagoneer between Zack and Hannah about attending the dance, before OverprotectiveDad Stine shoots it down (the scene also includes several ad-libbed versions of Stine's response).
** [[spoiler: After the JerkJock football player bails on his girlfriend, he receives a bout of LaserGuidedKarma in the form of the Abonimable Snowman of Pasadena.]]
** [[spoiler:An alternate ending. Instead of Hannah being rewritten into reality, a ReplacementGoldfish named Anna asks Zack where her classroom is. After finding out she's not a monster, he goes to help her. The rest of the ending plays out as normal, only except when Stine passes the typewriter, the title typed is Slappy's Revenge. Slappy appears behind Stine as Stine screams into the camera.]]
