Disney + is now adding to its catalog On the other side, an anthological series in 8 episodes which adapts the comics of the king of horror for children, RL Stine (Goosebumps).
What is it about ?
An anthological mini-series combining horror and comedy, adapted from the comic books by RL Stine.
By the master of children’s horror
The thirty-something who read us very probably grew up watching the Poule Chair series on France 2 (like the author of these lines). Short and horrifying little stories that occasionally gave us great scares and pretty nightmares (thank you Slappy …). Stories straight out of the imagination of American author RL Stine. Much of his writing has since been adapted for film and television. Recently, it was Netflix that took on its Fear Street saga.
A few years ago, Stine wanted to renew himself by trying his hand at comic book. From its partnership with the publishing company Boom! Just Beyond was born, a series of comics in which he takes up his successful themes. It did not take long for Disney to buy the rights to adapt it, in order to offer it on its platform, Disney +.
Translated into French as “De Autre Côté”, the series consists of 8 short stories, with a different cast for each episode. The first, for example, worn by the brilliant Mckenna Grace, takes us to a school for girls where very strange things are happening, while the second tells us the story of a family of aliens. While not all young actors are necessarily known, adults are likely to recognize a few familiar faces, like Henry Thomas (ET).
On the other side is the worthy heir of Goosebumps and will delight children from 8 to 14 years old. The ideal series to spend a Halloween night shivering with fear as a family.
