Shocker on Shock street is another staple in the goosebumps book franchise. Along with “Say Cheese and Die”, “Night of the living dummy” and “Haunted Mask”, many people recognize this one immediately.
In case you didn’t know, The Shocker on Shock Street is about Erin and Richard Marty. They are huge fans of the “Shock Street” movie franchise and Erin’s dad is designing the theme park.
After going on one of the rides as a prescreening the track breaks down and they are forced to get off. After getting off, they are attacked by a giant preying mantis, a werewolf, and a skeleton. They run away to find a director who yells “cut!”. Are they in a movie?
The director is a robot so they run away again to the shocker’s house of shocks. Marty gets electrocuted and dies! From behind, Erin’s dad flips a switch and turns Erin off…turns out they were robots!
This was an interesting book and felt the most fleshed out in a long time. SO bizarre but in a good way.
5 out of 5 stars
