* VillainDecay: Slappy's only goal in the movie is to free the monsters, destroy the books, and kill Stine. He barely acknowledges that any non-Stine characters exist, children included. This really takes a lot of the tension away from a character who, in almost all of his previous appearances, was strongly implied to be a pedophile. On the other hand, that could be exactly ''why'' Slappy's motives changed, aside from the fact that he had a [[AndIMustScream really good reason]] to hate Stine.

*** The attraction that terrifies Abby is a game called "The Mummy's Tummy," and it involves people reaching into a replica of a mummy's torso and pulling things out. Why this would immediately terrify ''her'' is because Abby's horrific encounter before Horrorland involved a man who was keeping himself alive by pulling out the rejuvenated organs of mummies and eating them. Something which she'd seen with her own eyes. Of ''course'' she's going to start freaking out when she witnesses what is essentially the arcade version of that. That she's then forced through an Egyptian-themed section of the park, even more reminders of what'd happened to her, couldn't have done her nerves much good.

* MagnumOpus: ''The Ghost Next Door'' and ''Be Careful What You Wish For'' are seen as the most well-written books within the original series, with the former being a special case since it can be a genuine TearJerker to read from the climax to the [[BittersweetEnding ending]].

** NarmCharm: Featuring a remix of the theme song and incorporating dozens of book titles into the lyrics, some fans might think it actually represents the books better than the movie.

* TaintedByThePreview: Some fans took issue with the movie's first trailer using a very non-creepy pop song instead of the TV show's memorable theme song.

* BrokenBase: The movie trailer either has long time fans excited to see their favorite books on the big screen, or deriding the whole thing as a lazy attempt to cash in on nostalgia.
** The entire premise of the movie. Either it's a great way to examine Goosebumps in a meta sense, or it's robbing us of the anthology film that was originally announced.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Most of the monsters have absolutely nothing to do besides serve as {{Mooks}} for crowd shots. Slappy ends up being the only one with a distinctive personality or screen time.

** On the upside for some, he was able to hit the RL Stine appearance, minus the forehead mole.
