If you grew up reading R.L. Stine’s spine-chilling stories, get ready to experience the screams and terror of the Fear Street Trilogy. In a first for Netflix and for the horror film genre, Netflix is announcing that the upcoming Fear Street Trilogy will be released as an epic summer movie event over three consecutive weeks this July:
In 1994, a group of teenagers discovers that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations may all be connected — and that they may be the next targets. Based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling ‘Fear Street’ horror series, the trilogy follows the nightmare through Shadyside’s sinister history.
For Horror Fans
“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!”, explains 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 1: 1994 is due to premiere on 2 July, followed by Fear Street Part 2: 1978 on 9 July. The final film in the series, Fear Street Part 3: 1966 will be released on 16 July. Check out the trailer for the film series here.
