The Top Ten
1 Welcome to Dead House Welcome to Dead House Product Image

R.L Stine went in quite scary with his first goosebumps book, and was probably told to tame it down a bit for the rest of them! Check out the Goosebuds podcast if you're a fan its hilarious!

The part where they melted by the sun is completely nightmare fuel.One of the main character's friends has a black skull.
I mean Stay Out of The Basement should be higher because the doctor/father kills the clone with an axe splatter with green gore completely messed up.

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

It is the most scariest book of all! And I read it as the first book of the goosebumps series... It really gave me the goosebumps and I could not sleep for three days...

2 Cuckoo Clock of Doom Cuckoo Clock of Doom Product Image

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

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

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

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

3 A Night In Terror Tower A Night In Terror Tower Product Image

8 Stay Out of Basement Stay Out of Basement Product Image

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!

Because the Giant praying mantis was a really sick idea, like who doesn't like praying mantises and especially in the film it looks so sick! and in the title I already new it's going to be an awesome book and the name is totally cool shocker in shock street shock is the best word for praying mantis! especially n the major motion picture version.

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.

as all (in my opion) it's not the best effort R.L. Stine gives us, ok a SNOWMAN, wHAT, CURSED SNOWMAN, EVEN BIGGER WHAT...

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!

The counselors are very scary!

16 Ghost Beach Ghost Beach Product Image

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

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.

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

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

17 Ghost Camp Ghost Camp Product Image

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.

This one was really scary

Remember the ghost girl?

I've been to camp but not GhOsT cAmP

20 Curse of the Mummy's Tomb Curse of the Mummy's Tomb Product Image
21 Be Careful What You Wish For... Be Careful What You Wish For... Product Image
22 The Ghost Next Door The Ghost Next Door Product Image

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!

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.

Best in the series I guess.

23 The Curse of Camp Cold Lake The Curse of Camp Cold Lake Product Image

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

Damn pretty scary

24 The Girl Who Cried Monster The Girl Who Cried Monster Product Image

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

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

The real episode was scary

25 The Haunted Mask The Haunted Mask Product Image

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

This was so not scary and indeed retarded.

My mom put in it mi

Those masks...*shudders*
