"Based on the successful book series by R.L. Stine, Max Doyle finds he has a few friends living in his house that only he can see."

Being a movie based on a book by R L Stine, I figured it would be good. I have to say I was a little disappointed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't as good as I had thought it would be. The plot was great, but there were a few unexplained things. I'm thinking perhaps another of those movies that should probably have just been left as a book. And, no, I haven't read the book, but I know R L Stine's usual writing style, and either his skills as a writer slipped big time when writing this one, or the attempt at making it in to a movie was a failed attempt. Knowing how often that happens - and knowing that the book(s) it was based on was/were very popular - that's the option I'm going with... Not bad, but not great either... The book is probably better.
