Horrors of the Witch House is the third arc of the horror anthology comic series Goosebumps. It was published by IDW between May and July 2019.[1]


All the kids in Beaver Creek, Oregon, know that the old Whaley House is probably haunted, so when young tech entrepreneur Veruca Curry moves in, the kids fear there's more to her than meets the eye. The adults in town think that Veruca is just the sort of hip, young new blood that Beaver Creek needs, but Rosie, a loner who loves anime and Japanese comics, Carlos, a popular preppy boy, and Becca, the school's star athlete, find out the terrible truth—Veruca is a witch, and she's got a terrible plan that could destroy Beaver Creek unless they can stop her.
