#35 "It's a real dead end."
Erin and Marty are big horror movie buffs. They love the Shocker on Shock Street films. So when they get the opportunity to visit the Shocker Studio Theme Park they jump at the chance. It's everything they hoped it would be. Just like in the movies. But it's all completely fake rig right? Very much like one day at HorrorLand with giant monsters.

I ignored all the sounds. I didn't want to think about whether they were being made by real monsters or fakes. I didn't want to think about the frightening creatures we had run into - or the close calls Marty and I had had.

I didn't want to think.

Excellent. We're back on track. This is a great Goosebumps novel.

Erin and Marty are best friends - 12 years old and so similar-looking they are often mistaken for twins. But they are similar in more than appearance! They both love horror movies, and alwa

that was quite unexpected, bob!

p26: the frog-faced guy covered from head to toe with purple and brown warts was the fabulous frog, also known as the toadinator. he starred in pond scum and pond scum ii, two of the scariest movies ever made.

This is a thrilling read which kept me at edge. The ending is a shocker and I think reading this in middle of the night added to the fun.

I always thought this one was super creepy. Maybe this is why I hate praying mantises to this day.

I love books about haunted houses and things of that nature. While I love reading about them, I can't be in them. I'm about 3 scares away from a heart attack. Anyways, the book sounds dumb and the cover looks like a movie cover for Starship Troopers V, but it was actually pretty good. You have two kids who get to be the first kids to test out a horror ride or a tour ride of Shocker Studios. They get to see every scene from movies in the studio, but it comes to life! Now that would be fun.....and ...more

Look to be honest I don't think I will ever not be entertained by giant monsters rampaging through cities, destroying things and terrorising people.

I don't really know what that says about me as a person, but it does mean this was a fun read.

Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series.

Erin and her friend Marty are big fans of the horror franchise ‘Shock Street’.
So when Erin finds out that her father is working on an amusement park based on the hit series, she can’t contain her delight! As she is given the chance to experience the park prior to the big unveiling.

I loved the various characters that Stine creates that Erin and Marty meet along the way. This leads to some fun cliffhangers and of course the iconic Praying Mantis!

One of the great Goosebumps twists, I also like the

I liked the book A Shocker on Shock Street. I liked this book because I loved the twist at the end. It makes you just completely backtrack everything you thought was going to happen. This book also talks about a dad who just works for a movie company. But, in the end this turns out be what makes the story have a large twist that changes everything. So, if you like big twists and scary books this book is for you. So, see ya! i'm off to reading more scary books.

A Shock On Shock Street
PLOT: The Shocker on Shock Street horror movies are some of the most popular with kids and adults. Erin's father's job is to design theme parks and he has designed a tour that takes you on a tram car to meet the characters from the movies face to face and down the actual set where the movies take place. Erin and her friend Marty will be the first kids to test the ride.

*Right away we get a hint that something isn't right because Erin mentions wanting her mother

Oh boy. As soon as you read the title to this one, you know you're in for something special. We open up with our hero Erin and her friend Marty having some spooky encounters with monsters, only to find out they're watching a scary movie at the theatre. I like to imagine this is a Thriller reference, and although we get zombies later they sadly do not perform a dance sequence.

Anyway, Erin's friend Marty is your staple GB asshole kid. I can't count the number of kids in this series that are just t

Title: A Shocker on Shock Street
Series: Goosebumps #35
Author: RL Stine
Overall Rating: 3 stars

A decent installment within this series, but nothing amazing. Basically, Erin and Marty love the Shock Street horror films so when they get the chance to go to the studio they're filmed at, they're very excited. But when they meet some of the creatures, they come off a bit too real.

This isn't really one that stands out too much but it's still a good childr

Erin and her best friend Marty are in love with horror movies. One day Erin and Marty visit the new Shocker Studio Theme park, where all their favorite horror moves get shot. When they get there, real live monster's start chasing them, and trying to kill them.

I recommend this book to everyone. I enjoyed reading this book. I was able to keep a strong image in my head of what was happening in the book.

If i were to rate this book out of ten, i would give it six and a half. I continue to enjoy R.L.

I can see how young boys would like this book so I gave it three stars. The writing is very simplistic and it didn't really appeal to me. However, I'm a proponent of anything that gets children, especially young boys reading. I would not have chosen this book to read, but it was given as a gift to my son and he wanted me to read it with him.

I liked this book because it has some creepy parts like when they are in "The Cave of Creeps" white worms fall from the ceiling and crawl all over them, the way the book descried them creeped me out. Read this book if you enjoy weird and creepy books.

This book was so bad that I had to read it twice to make sure. A Shocker on Shock Street remains my only 1-star book on GoodReads. Sorry R.L. Stine!

The ending was the worst part. Eight-year-old me had exacting standards, perhaps.

Kind of an interesting story, but a little predictable at times.
