Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
After COVID affected the trilogy’s original release plans, Fear Street Part 1: 1994 arrives on Netflix with it’s two sequels due within mere weeks. Bold and ambitious? For sure. But actually based on this 1994 set chapter I’m keen to see how the story plays out – even if Fear Street does sometimes fail to rise above its cliched, well trodden slasher film roots. Based on RL Stine’s successful young adult book series, Leigh Janiak’s adaption is gory, at times disarming, often good fun and certainly not just for the teenagers.
Best Bit: It’s over… or no wait!
