Haunted theme parks have been a big thing for the horror genre since Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, so naturally R.L. Stine would need to put his own spin on it. This version of the story centers on a family's terrifying trip to Horrorland, a theme park that more than lives up to its name. It also has a weird reality TV/Truman Show-esque subplot that proved to be ahead of its time (the monsters in the theme have been filming the family for their own show). And the twist ending—that the family is offered more free passes by monsters—is more darkly humorous than most.
