Fear Street Part Two: 1978 [2021] ★★½

If you’ve seen last week’s slasher film on Netflix, then you probably know what to expect from part two. The only difference this time around is that we’re in 1978, and a group of teenagers at a summer camp come face to face with a psychotic killer on the loose. Ring a bell? Of course it does, since Fear Street’s sole purpose is to pay tribute to such classic slasher films as “Friday the 13th”, “Halloween” and more. Again, if this sounds like your cup of tea, then you’re in for some fun. Personally, I feel this sequel is more of the same, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, it doesn’t add anything new to the table, and we already know what’s going to happen, but it’s still a decent attempt at delivering a slasher film for a new generation of streamers. Part three, which streams next week, will take us back to “1666” in order to wrap things up. It’s been an enjoyable ride so far and I’m looking forward to the big finale. Watch out!
