“Stay Out of the Basement” is the second of 63 goosebump books by RL Stine, (Jeez, move over Stephen King…jk….I love you).
It follows brother and sister Casey and Amanda as they slowly learn of the horror in their basement. Their dad is experimenting with plants but it starts to look more like the plants are experimenting on HIM.
“Stay Out of the Basement” is a major improvement on the first book (Welcome to Dead House), which was published in the SAME MONTH AND YEAR!
I genuinely couldn’t put this book down! The imagery was gross and scary, the characters were believable and the ending left you thinking. I felt this one was an instant classic for the right reasons.
I give it a 4 out of 5.
