Today we’re talking about the 2021 film Fear Street 1978.
This is my favourite of the three. It feels like a good old-fashioned slasher with an added supernatural twist. The framing narrative of the other movies doesn’t intrude as much.
The younger versions of the characters from the first movie were perfectly cast. The surreal feeling of the trilogy shines here.
Definitely felt off, but not as bad as 1994. I found despite the supernatural elements, the dialogue was delivered pretty well.
Visuals and Music
This felt oddly undersaturated compared to the other two. I liked the predominance of red in the caverns though.
The music was a lot of fun and felt like a nod to Supernatural.
I liked this one a lot. It was exciting and fun. I enjoyed the camp hijinks and the off-kilter world.
The strongest of the trilogy, it could stand on its own. The characters are fun and I love the mixture of lore, supernatural, and good old-fashioned slasher.
Final Score: 4.5 Stars out of 5
