The Horror, also known as The Old Horror, is a HorrorLand Horror featured in Goosebumps merchandise.


The star attraction of "HORRORLAND" amusement park isn't just any special effect; this monster is for real! The HORRORLAND Horror lives for thrills, the kind of breathtakingly frightful stunts that make humans of all ages scream with terror and leave the Horror laughing with delight! You see, this green and purple creepy creature takes its amusement very seriously!

But the spine-chilling attractions to be found at "HORRORLAND" are just some of the Horror's favorite things. In fact, its most relaxing form of entertainment is - what else? - television! After a long day of stalking, the Horror loves nothing better than to kick off its ghastly monster shoes, get a grip on a piece of putrid pizza, plop down on its well-worn sofa and watch TV. Its network of choice? The Monster Channel, of course!

One look around the Horror's domain and it's easy to see the monster's favorite color - Black! The Horror loves black everything! Black ice cream! Black bouquets of black balloons! Bizarre black bunches of black claw-cut flowers!

But surely, the Horror's least favorite thing is something no other self-respecting monster would possibly fear - pinching! Pinching?? It's shocking but true! The mere thought of even a tiny squeeze sends the Horror running in terror! With only a petty little poke at the Horror's hide, this gruesome green nightmare deflates! Poof! Whoosh! Mouth wide open, air rushing from its purple lips, the Horror shrinks away just like a busted beach ball! Seems this monumental monstrosity isn't always good in a pinch!


The Horror has long twisted gray horns, big and bulging yellow eyes (although they are colored differently throughout the franchise's merchandise), green skin, metal toenails bursting through his footwear, four-clawed hands, and a red heart tattoo with the number 16 on his left arm.

The Horror is dressed like a greaser with a big white t-shirt, torn half-length blue denim pants, and brown leather ankle-length boots. In different merchandise, he is also shown wearing bunny slippers (brown or white) and roller blades (purple, gray, or blue) with elbow pads (white or gray).





  • Most of his footwear sports the Goosebumps "G" logo on the sides, except for his bunny slippers.
  • The number 16 on his heart tattoo is a reference to the book number for One Day at HorrorLand, the book that introduced HorrorLand and the Horrors.
