R.L. Stine’s Fear Street Teaser: 3 Movies Coming to Netflix Weekly in July

July 2nd can't get here fast enough.

If you’re like me, R.L. Stine has been part of your life for a long time. And I’m not just talking Goosebumps. I’m talking Fear Street stories like The Stepsister or The Wrong Number. Those were the books that I got from the library and that scared me with every page turn. Now, Netflix is bringing the spooks to life with a horror trilogy event based on the Fear Street books. And personally, I’m here for not waiting till October for more horror.

The first movie of the trilogy, Fear Street Part 1: 1994 will drop on July 2nd. The second movie of the trilogy, Fear Street Part 2: 1978 will premiere on July 9th. And finally, Fear Street Part 2: 1666 will premiere on July 16. Spanning over 300 years, this trilogy opens up in 1994 with a group of teenagers who discover that they may be the next targets in their town based on a danger that has haunted their home for generations.

The Fear Street trilogy will be directed by Leigh Janiak, best known for the MTV show Scream: The TV Series. And according to IGN, Fear Street was filmed over one crazy and bloody summer in 2019. “It’s a dream that audiences now get to experience the story in the same way – back to back to back, with only a week of waiting in between. I can’t wait to welcome everyone into the world of Fear Street in 1994, 1978, and 1666!”

What I’m most excited about, and what R.L. Stine seems to be excited about, as well, is that these movies won’t be rated PG. They will be rated R! According to an official press release, R.L. Stine said, “Readers know that the book series is rated PG. But the movies are rated R. That means a lot more thrills–and a lot more terror! I have seen Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy releasing on Netflix in July and I can tell you the scares and the SCREAMS are more than I ever expected. What fun to see the horrors of Shadyside come to life!”

The Fear Street trilogy joins the 70 movies released in 2021, based on its model to release one new movie each week. And with a lineup of Maya Hawke, Sadie Sink, Charlene Amoia, and Kiana Madeira, to just name a few actors in this trilogy, we’re bound for a good time with plenty of screams, death, and mayhem.
