Most people think telling a scary story is easy, but it requires a specific talent. Even famous horror authors like R.L. Stine sometimes has a book that lacks the right scary elements.
But most of his books are a huge success. I mean, who wouldn’t be scared of a giant insect, a murderous clown or a clinically insane ventriloquist dummy?
R.L. Stine is a great example of a horror author who knows exactly how to scare you. Clowns, bugs and dummies are extremely common fears in the world. In fact, over 20% of women and 15% of men suffer from arachnophobia, the fear of arachnids.
In fact, Goosebumps was so popular, they made a movie about it!
Rumors of the sequel are floating around, but nothing has been confirmed.
