All this week, Netflix has been having Geeked Week. Geeked Week is an online event that showcases some of our favorite Netflix shows and movies while introducing us to some upcoming ones. There has been a lot of content and one of the things they released is something I have been waiting for. The trailer for Fear Street.
If you grew up in the 90s, chances are you know who R.L. Stine is and that means you’re familiar with his popular book series Fear Street. If you are not, Fear Street is a series of young adult horror novels that take place in a fictional city called Shadyside, set somewhere on the East Coast. More specifically, the street it’s on is named after the cursed Fear family. Although the series deals with paranormal such as ghosts, many of the books involve murder mysteries. I talked briefly about this when we shared some of our favorite books in our World Book day piece.
I have been excited for the Netflix series since it’s announcement and when Geeked Week announced that they would be releasing the trailer, I had to tune in and boy was it worth it. After watching the trailer for Fear Street I am even more excited than I was before. Seriously, my teenage fangirl was screaming inside.
Check out the trailer!
Looks awesome right? what’s even more exciting is the way they are doing this. Fear Street will be done with three films set in a different time period with all of them releasing over a period of three weeks.
Here are the titles along with their synopsis:
Fear Street Part One: 1994
A circle of teenage friends accidentally encounter the ancient evil responsible for a series of brutal murders that have plagued their town for over 300 years. Welcome to Shadyside.
Fear Street Part Two: 1978
In the cursed town of Shadyside, a killer’s murder spree terrorizes Camp Nightwing and turns a summer of fun into a gruesome fight for survival.
Fear Street Part Three: 1666
Thrust back to 1666, Deena learns the truth about Sarah Fier. Back in 1994, the friends fight for their lives and Shadyside’s future.
While every film is separate, they are each linked in some way which is what R.L. Stine is known for. I don’t know about you all but my plans for July are set.
The Fear Street trilogy stars Olivia Welch (Unbelievable), Gillian Jacobs (Invincible), Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), David W. Thompson (Panic), Kiana Madeira (Trinkets), and Maya Hawke (Stranger Things).
