Fear Street Teaser Trailer: Netflix Horror Trilogy Coming In July

Netflix teased this week that something was coming regarding Fear Street. That something, though, was more teasing. Specifically, they released the Fear Street teaser trailer.

The Fear Street Adaptation Will Actually Be a Trilogy

The teaser trailer is actually a teaser for three separate movies. They will tell interconnected stories, but will not drop on the same day. In a wild innovation, Netflix will actually be releasing these movies weekly. Weekly releases? Can y’all imagine?

Anyway, I know I’ve mentioned before, like in my Raiders of the Lost Ark Retro Review, that my parents didn’t allow me to watch anything scary or with violence. They also didn’t allow me to read anything scary. However, I did secretly read some of the Fear Street books, so I have a passing familiarity with the subject.

It doesn’t matter, though, because the book series only inspires these films. While the trilogy is set in Shadyside, like the books, the story is all new. According to Netflix:

“In 1994, a group of teenagers discovers that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations ​may all be connected — and that they may be the next targets. Based on R.L. Stine’s best-selling horror series, the trilogy follows the nightmare through Shadyside’s sinister history.”

That’s actually the plot summary just for the first film, which will drop on July 2. I’m going to guess (hope?) that since it’s set in the 90s, like me, that it’ll draw inspiration from 90s teen horror flicks.

The second film, Fear Street: Part Two – 1978, is set just outside of town, I guess. In fact, it’s set at a Camp Nightwing. The camp “is divided by the campers and counselors who hail from the prosperous town of Sunnyvale and the campers and maintenance staffers from the downtrodden town of Shadyside, but when horrors from their towns’ shared history come alive, they must band together to solve a terrifying mystery before it’s too late,” according to its plot summary. As it’s set in the 70s at a summer camp, it’s obviously giving me 70s slasher vibes.

Finally, there’s Fear Street: Part Three – 1666. Given the time period, it’s probably unsurprising that this one involves a witch-hunt. It’ll also see a reappearance from our 90s teens, though, as they try to put an end to this scary nonsense/witch’s curse, once and for all.

The first Fear Street installment will debut on Netflix on July 2, 2021, with the next two available each subsequent week.
