R.L Stines book: The haunted mask.
A thrilling horror story about a young girl (Carly Beth) who mysteriously finds a horrible looking mask in her basement. This mask is prepared to make this Halloween a nightmare for both Carly and her best friend Sabrina (who later appears in the story). Not only is the mask haunted, but also is its sick and unforgettable past. The story itself is very haunting and will most definitely give you goosebumps as you read it. This book fits perfectly in to the ''you
I love this Horrorland series. Ya, I know, I'm 23 and still reading Goosebumps. I don't give a shit. The original series was my favorite when I Was younger and I remember endless nights reading up in the attic with a flashlight. Devouring book after book. I think these books will stick with me until I grow old and gray, just like HP. There's just something about these books that make me want more. I know I should be reading classics and (ugh )heavy romance books like other people expect a 23 yr ...more

This was a sequel, and although I have never read The Haunted Mask, I was able to follow The Scream of the Haunted Mask just fine. It was rather creepy (but not quite Fear Street-level), and the soundtrack and sound effects in the audio book added immensely to that vibe. The second part - the Horrorland story - was a little harder to follow as I have not read the second and third books in the Horrorland series and the stories are continuous.

Question: What was the most exciting part and why
Author: R.L.Stine

The most exciting part for me was when Carly Beth and Sabrina went to the barn to take photos for their class work. While Sabrina was taking photos they heard the sound of horses stamping their hives on the floor. they looked around but couldn't find and one else in the barn. Soon after the noises became louder and louder the two began to get scared until Sabrina burst into laughter. She explained that she actually brought Carly B

I think this book is full of excitements. It's about a horror mask that always appears in the day of Halloween. It starts when a boy bought the mask he said when he wore the mask it can't be taken of, it will stick to you face. And one day when he and his friends is in the cabin the horse died because of the mask. When you wear the mask you will be a total different person and you will be a mean and bad person .In my opinion I think it is a creepy book.What will you do if you got that mask? Well ...more

The Scream of the Haunted Mask is another fun book by R.L. Stine. I liked this book because it had a Halloween theme.

This book is about a girl named Carly Beth who is always tortured by two boys at school. She walks into a Halloween store and find a creepy mask to scare them with. She tries it on at home and realizes that the mask is slowly trying to take her over.

This is one of my favorite Goosebumps books. I recommend this book to people looking for cool Halloween books.

Would you go down in the basement if you heard your name called? If you would you should read Goosebumps Horrorland The Scream of the Haunted Mask. Carly Beth goes down in the basement because she heard her name. She takes out a box and finds a haunted mask. She puts the mask on and it controls her. My favorite part was when she went down to the basement and finds the mask. You should read this book because its a good book.

Amazing!! Clark totally surprised me! I love Carly Beth's character and personality. The Haunted Mask is a good scare, with its scream and all. I won't count this into my rating; but it was a little cheesy when the masks weakness was love, because evil things weaknesses are always love. (Malificent; in Sleeping Beauty.)
This is yet another audiobook that I got in Humble Bundle and the kind of thing that I wouldn't listen to in any other situation. I thought it was an interesting terror book for middle-graders, and yet one fact bothered me either in this book and in Revenge of the Living Dummy: the fact that the boys are so annoying. Some will say "well, they're kids. Boys will be boys" and, honestly, the only case in which I see that as the truth is if their parents failed at some point in their education.

I barely remember the original Haunted Mask story, but I enjoyed this anyway. The ending was a nice little twist, but the Horrorland part of this was a bit confusing. I think that's because I missed the first three books, so I had no idea who these missing kids were.

It took me a ridiculously long time to finish this book. School was the problem. Always will be the problem. Too much work! :(

Anywho, I bought The Scream of the Haunted Mask probably about a year ago and I just got around to reading it. It was a great little read! I didn't read much Goosebumps books when I was younger, but I did read The Haunted Mask and I loved it back then. It's my favourite Goosebumps story. I also enjoyed the TV show as a kid and The Haunted Mask was my favourite episode. Th

This book is not that scary but still cool. This girl named Carly Beth she owns this evil mask that turns whoever wears it evil and the mask tries to control her but she does not let it. In the middle Carly and her friend get tickets to Horror Land where everyday is Halloween.Read the book to find out what happens next.
Bethany Ainsworth
This story makes a good Halloween story, then again, this story does take place in Halloween.

I liked the part where Carly Beth and her friend went to Horrorland and got a glimpse of it again, even though the books I read weren't exactly in order, because I was eleven years old and grabbed the books that caught my eye.

Moving on, I rated it four stars because I reread it multiple times and it kept me on the edge of my seat, even though I knew the outcome and it kind of scared me a little.

It's all right. R.L. Stine picks up the story of Carly Beth the Halloween year after the first book The Haunted Mask. She was supposed to have overcome her fears but hasn't. The haunted mask she got and wore last Halloween is calling to her. Doesn't make much of an appearance in this book. My recollections of the first book when I read it as a child was that it was fun. This is not that great of a follow-up.

The kids and I really enjoyed this spooky tale about a haunted mask. There were many times that they didn't want to stop, they just had to find out what was going to happen next. We plan to read more Goosebumps books!
Mark Soone
Probably the least enjoyable book in the series so far. Perhaps the timing of it? It took me several attempts just to get into. I did enjoy the Horror Land sequence much more than the main story

I think this book is interesting and scary. The haunted mask wanted to control Carly Beth. She bought it last Halloween. When she puts on the mask she will turn evil and if she take it off she will come back to normal. Laura, the ghost wanted the haunted mask back and get even more evil.
It took us a long time to get through this, largely because of an extended Doctor Who nostalgia trip, but also partly because Sean often turned down the opportunity to proceed. The reduced rating from previous Stine offerings is due to this. The story is much the same as in the original haunted Mask, qv.

The Enter Horrorland section didn't much advance the plot there. After number 5, which we have, the remainder will probably have to be tracked down. Any ideas? - bearing in mind I live in Fiji an

Although it was a good read, it wasn't as good as the first part. The first part totally terrified me; unforgettable, is what I'll call it.

As a teacher and mother I love goosebumps books. This book gave a nice thrill without going into adult scary. My students and children will enjoy this one!
Dione Basseri
Interesting idea, a sequel to one of the earliest Goosebumps books. This time, we get more of the background of the haunted mask. Nothing built upon the original books, but not too bad. The second part of the book, focusing on the continuing plot of Horrorland, gives readers more info on the behind-the-scenes scheming going on. Are there employees of Horrorland out to help the kids? Or is everything in the park out to get them?

Overall, the book is okay. After the first book, "Night of the Living
