It was first published in and was rereleased in as the thirteenth book in the Classic Goosebumps series, featuring new artwork by Brandon Dorman. The book follows Amanda and Josh Benson , who move with their parents into a creepy old house located in the strange town of Dark Falls where people are unlike any they have known before. The cover illustration features an old house at night, with the front door slightly ajar, and a strange figure illuminated in the window. Amanda and Josh think the old house they have just moved into is weird. Possibly haunted. And the town of Dark Falls is pretty strange, too. But their parents don't believe them. You'll get used to it, they say. Go out and make some new friends. So Amanda and Josh do. But these new friends are not exactly what their parents had in mind. Because they want to be friends

We also have a real-estate agent, Compton Dawes, who seems to have no shortage of excuses for why the house looks "old and gross" or why the neighbourhood is so quiet.

Amanda herself doesn't cope well with the move, having to leave a beloved friend behind in a very harrowing, tearful goodbye, and upon arriving in Dark Falls she begins to see things. As is often the case, her parents and brother begin to think she's troubled, chalking up her visions of dead people to be related to her anger over the move.

Meanwhile dysfunction ensues within the family itself including Josh Benson running away from "home", the parents fighting over petty things like the crispiness of a piece of bacon and the family dog going missing.

Things eventually take a turn for the downright brutal and shocking, including Mr. Dawes having his head beaten inward with a large halogen flashlight, a boy being melted apart to the point where his eyes pour out from his skull, the dog being killed and eaten by the townsfolk, descriptions of an unnamed "yellow gas" from the factory floating over Dark Falls and killing off all the residents of the town luckily Stine spared his readers from knowing exactly how the gas worked, because wow and a teenage girl named Karen actually thanking Amanda for killing her.

I can see why there was a backlash against children reading this story. That being said at the time of its publication and to this day, it took the "haunted house" trope and used it to sympathize with a plight that most kids have to face at least once in their childhood. Moving is difficult, whether you see it as an adventurous new start or a cut-off from your friends and school.

And they were mean. As we passed the stack of clothes on the landing, I thought about the girl I had seen standing there. And I thought about the boy in the window when we first arrived. And the two boys Josh had seen in his dream. I decided it proved that Josh and I were both really nervous about moving to this new place.

Maybe Mom and Dad were right. We were letting our imaginations run away with us. It had to be our imaginations. I mean, what else could it be? He was as glad to see us as ever, leaping on us with his muddy paws, yapping excitedly, running in frantic circles through the leaves.

It cheered me up just to see him. It was hot and muggy even though the sky was gray. There was no wind at all. The heavy, old trees stood as still as statues. We headed down the gravel driveway toward the street, our sneakers kicking at the dead, brown leaves, Petey running in zigzags at our sides, first in front of us, then behind.

We stood at the curb, looking up at our house, the two second-floor bay windows staring back at us like eyes. The house next door, I noticed for the first time, was about the same size as ours, except it was shingle instead of brick. The curtains in the living room were drawn shut.

Some of the upstairs windows were shuttered.

Goosebumps- Welcome to the dead house

Tall trees cast the neighbors' house in darkness, too. I pointed up the street. Josh picked up a small tree branch from the side of the road and used it as a walking stick. Petey kept trying to chew on it while Josh walked.

No cars went by. I was beginning to think the whole town was deserted, until the boy stepped out from behind the low ledge. He popped out so suddenly, both Josh and I stopped in our tracks.

Then, before we could pull him back, Petey ran up to the boy, sniffed his sneakers, and began snarling and barking. The boy stepped back and raised his hands as if he were protecting himself. He looked really frightened. Josh grabbed the dog and picked him up, but he kept growling. He had a funny turned-up nose that seemed out of place on his serious-looking face.

He was wearing a maroon long-sleeved sweatshirt despite the mugginess of the day, and black straight-legged jeans. He had a blue baseball cap stuffed into the back pocket of his jeans. The dog yipped once, stared up at the boy, whimpered softly, then sat down on the street and began to scratch himself.

He seemed to relax a little, though, seeing that the dog had lost interest in barking and growling at him. I suddenly realized that Ray looked familiar. Where had I seen him before? I stared hard at him until I remembered. And then I gasped in sudden fright. Ray was the boy, the boy in my room. The boy in the window. He laughed. Then he went back to his serious scratching. He picked up a flat pebble and heaved it down the street. Petey growled, started to chase it, changed his mind, and plopped back down on the street, his stub of a tail wagging excitedly.

Heavy clouds lowered across the sky. It seemed to grow darker. Ray tossed another stone, then pointed up the road. He decided to start barking at Ray again, running up till he was a few inches in front of Ray, then backing away.

Welcome To Dead House

Ray took a few cautious steps back to the edge of the curb. Josh pulled the leash from the pocket of his shorts. I held the growling dog while Josh attached the leash to his collar. The leash seemed to confuse Petey. He tugged against it, pulling Josh across the street. But at least he stopped barking. We all thought for a while. Ray shook his head. The three of us headed up the street, Ray leading the way, me walking a few feet behind him, Josh holding his tree branch in one hand, the leash in the other, Petey running this way, then that, giving Josh a really hard time.

There were ten or twelve of them, mostly boys but a few girls, too. They were laughing and shouting, shoving each other playfully as they came toward us down the center of the street.

Some of them, I saw, were about my age. The rest were teenagers. They were wearing jeans and dark T-shirts. One of the girls stood out because she had long, straight blonde hair and was wearing green spandex tights. A few of them giggled, as if they were enjoying some kind of private joke. The three of us stopped and watched them approach.

I smiled and waited to say hi. Petey was pulling at his leash and barking his head off.

The others thought this was very funny for some reason. They laughed. The girl in the green tights gave a short, red-haired boy a shove that almost sent him sprawling into me.

He turned to Josh and me. I wished Petey would stop barking and pulling at his leash like that. Poor Josh was having a terrible time holding onto him. I tried to remember all the names but, of course it was impossible. It seems nice.

Josh, holding tight to the leash handle, told him. George stared hard at Petey, studying him, as if he had never seen a dog like Petey before. Karen Somerset, a tall, pretty girl with short blonde hair, came up to me while some of the other kids were admiring Petey. They grew quiet. Even Petey stopped barking. Had Karen really said that she used to live in our house? I wanted to ask her, but she had stepped back into the circle of kids. The circle. My mouth dropped open as I realized they had formed a circle around Josh and me.

Welcome to Dead House

I felt a stab of fear. Was I imagining it? Was something going on? They all suddenly looked different to me. They were smiling, but their faces were tense, watchful, as if they expected trouble. Two of them, I noticed, were carrying baseball bats. The girl with the green tights stared at me, looking me up and down, checking me out.

No one said a word. The street was silent except for Petey, who was now whimpering softly. I suddenly felt very afraid. Why were they staring at us like that? Or was my imagination running away with me again? I turned to Ray, who was still beside me. I looked over at Josh. The two boys with baseball bats held them up waist high and moved forward. I glanced around the circle, feeling the fear tighten my chest.

The circle tightened. The kids were closing in on us. The air felt heavy and damp. I wondered if Ray was going to say anything, if he was going to do anything to stop them.

But he stayed frozen and expressionless beside me. The circle grew smaller as the kids closed in. I took a deep breath and opened my mouth to cry out. Everyone turned to see Mr. Dawes coming quickly toward us, taking long strides as he crossed the street, his open blazer flapping behind him. He had a friendly smile on his face. To play softball. Dawes said, pulling down his striped tie, which had blown over his shoulder.

He looked up at the darkening sky. They were standing in small groups of two and three now. The circle had completely broken up. Dawes asked George. George playfully menaced the kid, pretending to come at him with the bat.

Dawes gave a little wave and started to leave. But then he stopped, and his eyes opened wide with surprise. I was feeling very confused. Now everyone was laughing and kidding around. Had I imagined that the kids were moving in on us? Was it just me and my overactive imagination? What would have happened if Mr. Dawes asked, smoothing back his wavy blond hair. Looking up at Mr. Dawes, Petey began to bark and pull at the leash. Dawes put an exaggerated hurt expression on his face.

Dawes apologetically. Dawes stood back up and shrugged. Have fun, kids. Open Preview See a Problem? Details if other: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Welcome to Dead House by R. Welcome to Dead House Goosebumps 1 by R.

The house is a freebie. Is haunted. The entire town is, as well. Two siblings discover that fears do come true.

Very well drawn up from the master of scare Mr. The story bears a classic uniqueness of Stine but a cliffhanger ending is his trademark. Turning back my high-school library years, it made my bone chill, yet again. Take all the stars! View all 4 comments.

From graphic descriptions of a family gnawing on moldy plates of human bones to a small town conspiring to murder the new family that has just moved into the creepiest house on the block, Welcome to Dead House easily could work as a standalone novel despite originally being marketed for children under the iconic and popular Goosebumps series.

This bit of gothic supernatural horror is extremely dark and after backlash and censorship in the 's from horrified parents and teachers, R. Stine understandably toned down the content of his series in future installments to make them more comedic and less unsettling and sad. That being said, I think something was really lost when he did this, because Welcome to Dead House was one of the only books I can remember reading as a kid that was classified as horror but dealt with tragedy, family dysfunction and the overwhelming emotions and common fears associated with moving.

He addressed these things both metaphorically and literally, and the book, unlike many other Goosebumps novels, doesn't try to avoid more serious themes, but instead dives into them with a surprising amount of depth and complexity for a book targeted towards twelve-year-olds. I'll concede I was a much bigger fan of the TV film adaptation produced in and filmed on Toronto's industrial Unwin Avenue.

I think the film did a better job at the scary factor with the usage of decrepit scenery, unsettling soundtrack and had the devastating chemical factory accident as more of a central plot device. I'd actually be surprised if there weren't a few adults not at least mildly creeped out by the film version you have to watch it in the dark to get the full effect , created by the talented William Fruet who also brought us the horror film Funeral Home.

The film also addressed economic depression in industrial towns in a way that seems much more appropriate for adults, with talk of people being fired from their jobs and a newspaper discussing an accident in the town's main employer, Dark Falls Chemical, an explosion which killed most of the workers and left the rest of the townspeople isolated and frustrated.

The book vaguely touches on this but not in the same manner. The book, however, is still arguably the best children's horror story I've ever read. In it we have Amanda Benson, a girl who finds herself and her typical all-American family moving to a town that is anything but. Dark Falls is odd. More than odd. The sunlight is virtually non-existent, the townsfolk are asocial and rarely seen and everything seems abandoned. The other children living in town seem either very depressed or very menacing.

We also have a real-estate agent, Compton Dawes, who seems to have no shortage of excuses for why the house looks "old and gross" or why the neighbourhood is so quiet. Amanda herself doesn't cope well with the move, having to leave a beloved friend behind in a very harrowing, tearful goodbye, and upon arriving in Dark Falls she begins to see things.

As is often the case, her parents and brother begin to think she's troubled, chalking up her visions of dead people to be related to her anger over the move. Meanwhile dysfunction ensues within the family itself including Josh Benson running away from "home", the parents fighting over petty things like the crispiness of a piece of bacon and the family dog going missing.

Things eventually take a turn for the downright brutal and shocking, including Mr. Dawes having his head beaten inward with a large halogen flashlight, a boy being melted apart to the point where his eyes pour out from his skull, the dog being killed and eaten by the townsfolk, descriptions of an unnamed "yellow gas" from the factory floating over Dark Falls and killing off all the residents of the town luckily Stine spared his readers from knowing exactly how the gas worked, because wow and a teenage girl named Karen actually thanking Amanda for killing her.

I can see why there was a backlash against children reading this story. That being said at the time of its publication and to this day, it took the "haunted house" trope and used it to sympathize with a plight that most kids have to face at least once in their childhood. Moving is difficult, whether you see it as an adventurous new start or a cut-off from your friends and school.

With moving from one place to another often comes the feeling that nobody understands you, that the people in your new town are weird or rude or different, and that everybody is out to get you, that you can't trust anyone.

Welcome to Dead House creates the perfect metaphor for this, where everybody really is out to get you and you can't trust anyone, because they're all secretly conspiring to murder your family as a cruel means of survival.

Back when I was a young lady little turd, my favorite place in the world was a tiny library in an old fashioned town called Henderson. My aunt lived up the road, and when I say up, I mean it literally. Once I had a bag full of books I had to lug them up a hill that felt like it would never end.

My siblings and I spent a lot of time there in the summers becau When it comes to horror movies I like them the same way I like my pizza- extra cheesy. My siblings and I spent a lot of time there in the summers because my mother was the manager of a convenient store right across the street from the library.

There was one summer in particular where I discovered the wonderful stories of R. I saw the covers with the bumped up letters and scary images and knew I had to have them all. And so my love of the macabre was born. While the neighborhood kids all played outside on the playground or at summer recreation or spent their day running under the hose, I could be found with my nose in a book. There was horsing around aplenty. I think I read every issue of Goosebumps available in that summer.

And it is that summer that I remember most fondly. After losing my father to cancer about a year and a half ago, I have been on a bit of a quest. Reading Goosebumps was just one item on a list of several meant to help me through this journey.

And oh! What a treat this truly was. I was immediately taken back to those summer days that felt endless. It was as if I had stepped into a time machine. I found myself laughing like a child again; my youth restored. I was able to find what had fascinated me so much as a kid again and that was an experience all in its own. I refuse to sugar coat it. The writing caused me to roll my eyes through most of it, the storyline so obvious and the characters…well they were cookie-cutouts at best.

The memories it brought up, the feeling I had in my soul, the laughter that poured out of me at the silliness of it all- those things are worth more than any money in the world. I look forward to reading more of these and hope that they still bring me the joy that they once did- even if it comes in a different form. View all 17 comments.

There's something off about the old house Amanda's dad inherited from a deceased uncle he's never heard of. A cold breeze made me shiver. It was actually a beautiful, hot summer day. But the closer we got to the house, the colder I felt. Welcome to Dead House offers a satisfying blend of camp and creepiness: I started up the stairs and then stopped. Above me on the landing stood a strange girl, about my age, with short black hair.

Yep, full on nostalgia hit! Plus bonus points for the cool cover. And yeah, I know that should't matter, but c'mon! Who doesn't love a nice cover?! View 2 comments. I read this because I promised my 11 year old that I would read it with him. He hates to read anything that isn't a comic book, or at the very least, in graphic novel format.

Since he loves all things creepy, I thought that this would be a great way to finally get the kid to read something with actual chapters! I think this is probably as close to perfect as it gets for a reluctant reader like my son. The chapter are short two or three pages at the most , and yet packed with super-creepy stuff. Nothing too graphic or gory, but still scary enough to keep a kid like mine interested. I think this would probably be suitable for ages 10 and up. View all 9 comments.
