I’ve Finally Watched…is back again with my review of the series, FEAR STREET 1994, 1978, 1666, A Netflix Original.
When I first saw the title and saw, R. L. Stine, I kind of dismissed these movies. I know he writes for teens so I was like, eh…kiddie ish. Was I wrong? YUP!
1994…This series follows a cursed town but more specifically, a cursed teen, Deena, and her cursed friends who live in cursed Shadyside. You see, murder in Shadyside is common. Serial Killers seems to be breed there. A spree killing is the norm. But when Deena and her friends become the target of that curse, brought on by the Witch Sarah Feir, they decide to fight back. But they made one fatal mistake, most curse have a history and aren’t easily beaten.
1978…Deena soon understands that to beat the Shadyside curse is to talk to someone who has gone through it. So they find the only survivor of a Shadyside massacre. We are taking back to that long ago day when Cindy and her sister Ziggy fought for their lives against the curse and the wicked witch Sarah Feir’s minions. With more knowledge but still no answers, Deena must go back to the beginning. And we are transported to…
1666…A evil has come to the once peaceful prospering settlement of Shadyside and that evil must be erased. Only, evil comes in many forms and it isn’t always born…but made.
All of these films are great. The first Good, the second, Better, and the third, Amazing. Each Era you are transported. Each was infused with the feel and vibe of the times. Even the murders felt equal to the times. The 70s…slasher. The 90s, stalkerish murders. The 60s, that mystical fear. And it all worked and came together nicely. I can only be vague because I don’t want to spoil anything. These films are light, thoughtfully scary, and you will have fun solving the curse. I really enjoyed them all.
