After the peak of Goosebumps’ popularity, R.L. Stine made a brief attempt at connecting with an older audience with a college-based series of horror stories called “Douchechills.” Stine only managed to write a few Douchechills books before his publisher pulled the plug on the project and urged him to write more books for the Goosebumps series. Below are the titles and descriptions of the now hard-to-find Douchechills series.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING SCARFACE POSTER
Skidmark and Traz are looking for some sick posters to decorate their new off-campus apartment. But by the time they arrive at Poster Town (after sleeping off a mega hangover), all of the good posters are gone. No Bob Marleys, no two-girls-kissing, no “no farting” posters. But then Traz notices a pretty sweet Scarface poster behind the counter. “That’s not for sale!” says Wendiglion, the mysterious shopkeeper, “But I think I may have some bikini babe posters in the back.” But the moment he steps out, Skidmark and Traz gank the Scarface poster. Later that night, after hanging it up, they notice something odd…Scarface is missing from the poster! And each night since, pledges keep disappearing too. Talk about a Scare-face!
THE SLUT WHO TURNED OUT TO BE A DUDE
The boys of Alpha Kappa Phi are having some real trouble getting their dicks wet. What with the chlamydia outbreak on campus, none of the usual girls seem to want to put out. That’s when Danielle shows up to their place. She’s sexy, she’s mysterious and she’s ready to get it on. One problem, though…it seems whenever a guy hooks up with her…he wakes up with a man in his bed. Is Danielle playing some sort of prank? Or is there more to this mysterious woman than meets the “guy”?
VOODOO ARMBAND TATTOO
Maybe it was the Mike’s Hard talking, but Big Ronnie needed to get a tattoo. And it had to be something sick. When he rolled up to the local tattoo parlour at 3:00 AM, he found that the doors were locked. “This is fucking gay!” he shouted. Just then, he noticed a new tattoo parlour across the street. He ran in and shouted “Give me the sickest armband tat you got!” The tattooist obliged, giving him a very sick armband tat. “That’ll be $200, sir,” said Wendiglion, the strange tattooist. But Big Ronnie already blew his wad on a blacklight poster of a lizard giving the middle finger earlier that night. “Sorry, bro. Not my problem.” Wendiglion just laughed. Big Ronnie left the tattoo parlour to go get hammered some more. But it seems now that whenever he chugged a sixer of Mike’s Hard…he didn’t even get a buzz. Could the strange symbols on the tattoo have something to do with this? It’s a tat-boo!
