Zach Cooper and his mother Gale move from New York to the town of Madison, Delaware. Their new neighbors are the mysterious "Mr. Shivers" and his daughter Hannah, but when Zach tries to introduce himself, Mr. Shivers warns him to stay away from them. At Madison High School where Gale works as the vice-principal, Zach befriends Champ, an often bullied socially awkward student.
One night, Zach hears Mr. Shivers and Hannah arguing from his window, followed by Hannah screaming. He calls the police, but Mr. Shivers assures Officer Stevens and Officer Brooks that nothing is wrong and the scream was from a movie. Fearing Hannah is in danger, Zach tricks Mr. Shivers into going to the police station for further questioning.
Once he is gone, Zach and Champ break into the house in search of Hannah. They find several Goosebumps manuscripts, all of which are locked. When they are confronted by Hannah, Zach accidentally unlocks The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena. The book opens, releasing a Yeti that breaks out of the house. They pursue the Yeti to a local ice rink, where Mr. Shivers appears and sucks it back into the book. On the way home, Mr. Shivers explains that he is truly R.L. Stine, the author of Goosebumps; he created his stories as a child to cope with severe bullying, but the monsters came to life and became uncontrollable, so he had to trap them inside their manuscripts.
Returning to the house, Stine and the kids are confronted by Slappy from Night of the Living Dummy, who is angry about being imprisoned. Before Stine can capture him, Slappy burns his own manuscript and flees with the others. They are attacked by the lawn gnomes from Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes, forcing Stine and the kids to try and fend them off, but each gnome reforms after being smashed, making them realize that the monsters cannot be destroyed.
Slappy releases several monsters, letting them rampage under his command. Zach suggests Stine write a new book that will trap every monster, but he can only do it on a special typewriter which is at the high school. On the way there, the invisible boy from My Best Friend Is Invisible and the giant praying mantis from A Shocker on Shock Street attacks Stine's station wagon, so they are forced into hiding. The titular Werewolf of Fever Swamp pursues them into an abandoned supermarket, only to be run over by Zach's aunt Lorraine.
As they continue toward the school after evading ghouls from Attack of the Graveyard Ghouls, Zach notices that Hannah glows blue in the moonlight. He privately questions Stine about this and Stine reveals that Hannah is a Goosebumps character he created, of which she is seemingly unaware. At the school, Stine finds the typewriter and starts on the new book, while Zach leads the other students in fending off all the released monsters that storm the building. Slappy confronts Stine and breaks his fingers with the typewriter case before the story is finished.
Stine and the kids board a school bus and lead the monsters to an abandoned carnival on the outskirts of town. Stine distracts the monsters by letting the blob monster from The Blob That Ate Everyone devour him alive. Zach finishes the story, but is reluctant to open the book because Hannah will be trapped inside it as well. Hannah reveals that she knew she was not real all along and opens the book, sucking all of the monsters into it. While Zach tries to hold on to her, Hannah accepts her fate and is imprisoned as well after they kiss.
Sometime later, Stine has started working as Zach's English teacher. After class, Hannah appears and Stine reveals to Zach that he wrote her back into existence with another book. She and Zach kiss and leave school together while Stine burns Hannah's manuscript. As he prepares to leave the school, he sees the typewriter typing by itself inside its display case. To Stine's horror, the invisible boy has evaded imprisonment and begins writing a story titled The Invisible Boy's Revenge.
