The Top Ten Scariest Goosebumps Books

1 Welcome to Dead House

Even though I'm Reading "Let's Get Invisible", this book that I'm gonna read is going to be horrific when I start reading it!

I like this book because I like a lot of scary and adventures books and I think his books are the best things to ever read.

My teacher read this book to my class and now they say that anything paranormal is caused by Mr Dawes. Camp Cold Lake was still scarier though

Best goosebumps book and the first goosebumps book, this will surely give you a thrilling experience and scare you such you won't be able to sleep... SCARIEST GOOSEBUMPS BOOK OF ALL TIME!

2 Cuckoo Clock of Doom

Amazing Book! I couldn't sleep for 2 days and I didn't look at the Clock for a few months until I thought it was Safe

It's not that scary. I think every goosebumps book besides my hairiest adventure is scarier.

Very clever and underrated book. Also surprisingly scary! It's almost like an episode of the Twilight Zone. - Bluejay3

One of my favorite books! (even though I did not read it)

3 A Night In Terror Tower

I loved the ending and horrible twist in this book this is one of my favourite book

This one freaked me out, and I could not sleep 4 like, week

This was definitely one of the eerie ones, but had a great plot to it.

I only read the series THE SCARIEST PLACE ON EARTH.

4 Say Cheese and Die

First book I ever read... couldn't sleep for a fortnite after that.

So scary I mean wow

People turn inside out in great detail. Goosebumps don't get much scarier than that! - mtndewlord

Disgusting but scary

This sounds scary

Scary and sick

6 The Haunted School

First goosebumps book. End was Damn terrifying for me.

It's a good book but kept me up for a week

I am with you.

7 Stay Out of Basement

I watched the episode way back in first grade. That's the first time I ever heard about Goosebumps. The scenes with the basement plants and Margaret and Casey entering the basement creeped me out a lot. My friends cried a lot!

This one is the scariest one for me at least

End is so scary

8 Night of the Living Dummy

Slappy is my favorite Goosebumps monster. This book is so scary that I locked myself in my room for a month.

This wasn't scary! However it is the best goosebumps book.

The first in one I ever read - RoseWeasley

I feel the same

9 A Shocker On Shock Street

I have no idea how RL Stine wrote this.I couldn’t sleep wonder if he did.

Awesome ending

The book was cool.

This is one of those Goosebumps books with everything in it; Skeletens, Giant Praying Mantises, Zombies, Werewolves, Robots...
RL Stine went went crazy with this one and it turned out pretty awesome!

10 Monster Blood

It was like the blob

The Newcomers

? How to Kill a Monster

The Contenders

11 One Day at HorrorLand

When you read this one you feal like the monsters are in your bedroom

This wasn't very scary, but it was awesome!

Oh yah - TriggerTrashKid

This book was not only scary but most iconic book that is ever made. Because of merchandise, spin-offs, games, etc. were everything throught out history.

12 Beware the Snowman

The way he described the snowmen was creepy. I also really like the setting in this one.

This isn't scary at all. I accidentally voted on it. - RalphBob

I couldn't go to sleep!

itis scary

13 How I Got My Shrunken Head

Being stuck on a jungle island with mad scientists who want to kill you and shrink your head! Can't get much scarier than that!

Totally awesome

14 Piano Lessons Can Be Murder

I haven't read this one but it should be #1 two of my friends read this and said a kid went into in attic and saw a piano teacher playing piano and her skin peeled off quickly

The cover reminds me of lets get invisible and my invisible friend

15 Horror at Camp Jellyjam

It's the best book ever


16 Ghost Beach

This should be number 1, I had nightmares as a kid when I read this. I even slept with the light on.

I know all goosebumps series are jokes. But if I should choose one this would be it. By far(in my opinion) this is the best effort Stine has made into his life as a writer.

I borrowed the book from the library and I read it. As a kid, I was pretty freaked out by the ghost kids and the ghost in the cave. Even though it gave me nightmares(no joking) I still loved the plot and the book Vote for this

This one freaked me out like, a ghost is going to kill me

17 Ghost Camp

Curse of the mummy's tomb and how I got my shrunken head is higher than this? Kid stabs himself with a pole in the foot, girl sticks her hand into the fire, oh yeah How I got my Shrunken Head sucks. - spodermanfan1000

This one was really scary

Remember the ghost girl?


18 The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight

The most horror one

Best book ever

Best one ever!

This is some pretty scary stuff! 😎

19 Deep Trouble

This was like jaws it's scary

20 Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

Creeps! - TriggerTrashKid

21 Be Careful What You Wish For...
22 The Ghost Next Door

I have read this book and it was a little less scary. Hannah is actually dead and Danny isn't so the shadowy figure tried to hurt Hannah! Geez, that frightened me when Hannah didn't touch Danny but Danny's arm goes through her! - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

Best in the series I guess.

This book made me pyrophobic. Kinda. I always blow out the scent candles in my house to make sure they wouldn't burn the house down like Hannah's house did. Yikes.

23 The Girl Who Cried Monster

My first book ever.
Really liked this one.
The twist was susprising
I did not see it coming that mr mortaman would be the main villain
Just like I did not see coming the parents would be monsters

The real episode was scary

I seen the episode it was gross we had to turn it off

24 The Haunted Mask

Those masks...*shudders* - RoseWeasley

This was so not scary and indeed retarded.

The book should be number 1. The floating masks really wanted to point my gun in front of my T.V.. It's great.

25 The Werewolf of Fever Swamp

I mean, it does get confusing at times but I think this is a really good book! I can relate with Grady, and it does give me shivers. I give this 4 and a half stars for how confused I was. But you should definitely read this

Harmless swamp hermit.

Amazing book

Great book - TriggerTrashKid

26 Night of the Living Dummy II

I have read it, my favorite part is when Dennis punches Slappy and cracks open his head

The part when after she put slappy in the sewers and when she was in her room was so scary. She found footsteps leading to her bed, looked under her bed and didn't find anything, and then Slappy just randomly appear behind her in her room.

I think it was good

Amy your my SLAVE - Yoshidude

27 The Curse of Camp Cold Lake

Out of all the goosebumps books I read as a kid, this one stuck with me. I still remember it two decades later as the most frightening thing I read as a kid.

This book is still stuck in my mind

Its not epic

This book was pretty terrifying and the darkest Goosebumps book. I’m surprised it wasn’t on the list

28 The Wizard of Ooze

This literally sent chills down my spine

Loved it!

Perfectly fantastic it was one of the best books I've ever read it's fanomonal and I'm just in love with it! I wish I could recommend this book to everyone! This is R.L Stine's masterpiece!

36 Welcome to the Wicked Wax Museum

I used to read this when I was a kid

This has some of the scariest material I’ve ever seen from the Goosebumps series. For example, on one of the bad endings you can achieve, you get ripped to shreds and you body parts are scattered all over the room. Eyes, ears, fingers, chunks of flesh all over the room. The worst part is, your still alive, despite being torn into pieces!

37 Stay Out of the Basement

The details Stine gives of the plants is really creepy. They all move, slowly, grabbing onto random things and groaning, as if a call for help. Then there’s the fact that they are a human-plant hybrid. Then there’s the fact that the main characters can't trust their own father because he himself is a plant intending to probably turn them into fertilizer for the other less sentient plants.
