Today we’re talking about the 2021 film Fear Street 1666.
This one stands on its own the least. It’s more like a mini movie with a tenuous connection to the conclusion. That being said, both halves were excellent.
Reusing actors was clever, both for cost and to make us feel like we were connected to them from the first 2 movies. They all did a great job, despite the mishmash of accents.
This was a mess. Too modern and too archaic all at the same time. The second half was a little better, but leaned too heavily into hammy dialogue.
Visuals and Music
The first half was grey and a little boring (Pilgrim life?) the second half went perfectly with 1994. The sets were great, but it was all a little blah.
The music tied in well with the other two, but didn’t add anything interesting.
This was interesting and I was really happy to finally get the answers, but it felt like two short stories. I think actually splitting it into two movies might have made it feel less rushed.
The last part of the series suffers from needing to tie up story points while struggling to tell its own stories. This one really should have been split into two.
Final Score: 2.5 Stars out of 5
