Day 16 of the Netflix October Horror Calendar and this time was the second instalment of the Fear Street trilogy, set in 1978.
Following from part one, this film takes us back to 1978 where there is an endless feud with the teenagers of Shadyside and Sunnyvale as the curse of the witch, Sarah Fier, appears and causes more brutal murders which, this time, terrorizes the campers at Camp Nightwing.
After the killings which happened in Fear Street: Part One – 1994, the teens who survived are now finding themselves in need of help to try and link the past events to the present in hope of discovering the truth behind the curses on their town.
Since it was a while since I watched this second instalment, when watching it again and comparing to the first instalment, I have to say I enjoyed this one more. As this takes us back to summer camp of 1978, I felt the directing, picture, casting, and music was a lot better.
The violence and gore were a good amount for this, and if you enjoy Sadie Sink in Stranger Things you will definitely enjoy her in this too!
I also felt the tones and the excitement from the trailers for this did not disappoint and did not give away very much, which caused the viewers (including myself) to enjoy it a lot more.
I rate this 5 stars.
