I was more of a Goosebumps kid. Never read a Fear Street book before. When I saw the trailer for the Fear Street movie on Netflix, I knew it would be right up my alley. I wasn't disappointed.
Fear Street 1994 has the same horror vibes as, say, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark but with much more gore. And maybe speaks to an older audience. Which makes sense. Scary Stories was more of a kids book. And Fear Street was more of a YA horror series, if I'm not mistaken.
The plot of Fear Street 1994 is a lot of fun. It follows a lot to the same tropes as any slasher film before it, except with the added twist of witches and zombies, sort of? I can't really say much more than that without spoiling something.
The movie series comes in 3 parts. 1994, 1978, and 1666. At the time of writing this, I have only seen 1994. Though, 1666 comes out today. I'll probably have caught up by the time you've read this. But I can't talk about the series as a whole yet. However, 1994 was a good, fun horror tale and I can't wait to see where the rest of the series goes. Let me know what you thought of Fear Street 1994!
