If It Were Stine: Your Favorite Horror Movies as Goosebumps Books

Check out the hot new Tumblr all the kids are talking about this Halloween: If It Were Stine

What is If? If is your favorite horror movies done as Goosebumps books. It's like that Fake Criterion Tumblr, only "as seen through the neon-green, pun-dripping lense" of R.L. Stine. The books have cool alternate titles and cover copy that summarizes the "films" in classic Goosebumps style. Some of my personal favorites: Escape From Arboria (Beyond the Black Rainbow), My Neighbor is a Vampire (Fright Night), and Television Trauma (Videodrome). Check it out and thank me later.
