Happy Halloween! We have a special spooky treat for you! Eugenia Triantafyllou joins us from Greece to talk about Goosebumps! Eugenia has written a lot of great stories, and you can find them at her website, but if you are wondering where to begin, you might try listening to “My Country Is a Ghost” on Podcastle!

But first… Goosebumps!

Listen to "Halloween Treat! Goosebumps: Welcome to Dead House with Eugenia Triantafyllou" on Spreaker.
The Goosebumps opening credits with Goosebumps written in dripping green text, and the caption in white reading, “You’re in for a scare.”

Here is Eugenia’s summary:

There was an episode of Goosebumps that was about a city where everyone was some kind of ghoul because a factory accident had turned them into one. A new family moves into the town unaware that everyone wants to eat them and the teenage kids (son?) discovers that pretty fast.

What was the unnerving thing about this was that these people were not dead/ghosts, nor vampires. They lived seemingly normal lives, families with children and they were just altered so drastically by a factory accident but they kept trying to live like before. With the small change that they wanted to eat people.


This summary was pretty spot on, though it did miss some plot points. We dug way into the story and had a lot of fun doing so! Did you ever read or watch Goosebumps? Let us know! And be sure to check out Eugenia’s work!
