After moving to a new small town, teenage Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) meets the beautiful girl next door, Hannah (Odeya Rush). But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach's comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange - he is a prisoner of his own imagination - the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town. It's up to Stine, Zach, Hannah, and Zach's friend Champ (Ryan Lee) to put all the monsters back in their books.

The title "Fiesta" is that chosen by Villalonga for his book, which this film closely follows; but it is a deliberate misnomer: "Fiesta" is about civil war and its horrors. An aristocrat landowner wants his 18 year old son, Rafaël, to do his duty in the Spanish civil war of the late '30's. So he fishes him out of college and - to avoid his son being killed out of inexperience or, worse for an aristocrat, being cowed at the first sight of bloodshed - he sends him to an old comrade-in-arms of his, Coronel Masagual. To toughen Rafaël, the Coronel assigns him to the firing squad which, after a summary judgement from a Military Court, executes Republicans caught arms in hand. Rafaël unflinchingly does his duty, but his sense of honor makes him balk at the other 'dirty war methods' of the Coronel, such as using a young girl as bait to lure her father, the local Republican commander, into a trap. _.
