Last year Netflix confirmed the acquisition of the rights to the youth horror books of the nineties known as Fear street and written by RL Stine, the also author of Nightmares, which has also had a recent adaptation to the big screen with Jack black leading the cast.
The films to be released throughout the month of July have been conceived as a trilogy that was filmed as a single full-length production. The director of all of them is Leigh Janiak, an expert in the genre having participated in television series scream (2015) and Outcast (2016).
Netflix now has shared a first trailer which brings together the three films and gives us a detailed description of what we can expect from each of them:
The Street of Terror, Part 1: 1994, will premiere on the platform on July 2. It takes place in 1994, with a group of teenagers who discover the relationship between events that have been terrorizing their city for several generations and could be related to each other. Welcome to Shadyside!
The Street of Terror, Part 2: 1978, will premiere a week later, on July 9. The movie takes place in the camp Camp Nightwing in 1978, with two groups of campers from different origins who must join forces to solve a mystery: on the one hand there are those who came from the oppressed town of Shadyside and on the other those from the prosperous Sunnyvale.
The Street of Terror, Part 3: 1666, will arrive in the third week, on July 16, to close the trilogy. This time the action takes us back in time to know the origins of the curse in 1666, when a colonial town was affected by a witch hunt that had consequences over several centuries and whose curse can only be eradicated with the 1994 youth intervention.
