Shadyside, 1978. School’s out for summer and the activities at Camp Nightwing are about to begin. But when another Shadysider is possessed with the urge to kill, the fun in the sun becomes a gruesome fight for survival.
Netflix has debuted the official trailer and poster for Fear Street Part 2: 1978, the second film in the streamer’s Fear Street Trilogy, releasing as an epic summer movie event over three consecutive weeks this month.
Based on the best-selling horror series by R.L. Stine, The Fear Street Trilogy will no doubt send a chill down your spine. Draw the curtains, turn off the lights, and get ready to dive into the terrifying nightmare that has spanned over 300 years in Shadyside’s sinister history with three movies over the course of three weeks.
“We filmed all three Fear Street movies over one crazy, bloody summer. It’s a dream that audiences now get to experience the story in the same way – back-to-back to back, with only a week of waiting in between. I can’t wait to welcome everyone into the world of Fear Street in 1994, 1978 and 1666!” said Leigh Janiak, Director of the Fear Street trilogy.
The film trilogy has also earned praise from the author, R.L. Stine himself, who said, “Fear Street fans are in for a treat – and some major surprises. Readers know that the book series is rated PG. But the movies are rated R. That means a lot more thrills– and a lot more terror! I have seen Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy releasing on Netflix in July, and I can tell you the scares and the screams are more than I ever expected. What fun to see the horrors of Shadyside come to life!”
Fear Street Part 2: 1978 premieres on Netflix on 9 July.
