“Fear Street” Trilogy Sets July Airdates

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Netflix has announced that the upcoming trilogy of movies based on R.L. Stine’s “Fear Street” book series will premiere over three consecutive weeks this July.

“Fear Street Part 1: 1994” hits July 2nd, “Fear Street Part 2: 1978” arrives July 9th, and “Fear Street Part 3: 1666” hits July 16th. Unlike Stine’s kid-centric “Goosebumps” films, these are rated R.

Leigh Janiak directed the interconnected films that unfold over three different time periods across three centuries – all in the fictional town of Shadyside, Ohio.

Things begin with a group of teenagers who discover that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations may all be connected – and they may be targeted next.

The trilogy was originally set up at Fox and was slated to debut theatrically, Netflix acquired the property last year.
