Netflix just released the Fear Street Part 2: 1978 trailer, and it looks awesome! If you like horror movies, this is the movie for you to watch on Netflix.
Netflix released Fear Street Part 1:1994 on July 2 to rave reviews. The next installment of the trilogy, Fear Street Part 2: 1978, will be released on July 9, only one week after the first Netflix movie.
The Fear Street movies are based on the teen horror novels by R.L. Stein, but where the books tell separate stories.
Check out the trailer for Fear Street Part 2.
Fear Street Part 2 trailer
The trailer shows us that the action won’t be slowing down for part 2!
A couple of interesting notes, this trailer puts off major Jason Vorhees vibes. You have the camp setting. Other clips show an ax-welding killer with a burlap bag on his head, which was Jason’s MO before the ski mask. The year 1978 is also the year that Michael Myers killed his sister at the tender age of 6 for no apparent reason.
One unique thing about these films is the fact that story is being told in reverse. It is an interesting concept, and other films have done prequels and storylines going in reverse, but to have the three films do this, as the whole story unfolds, it is very interesting.
At the end of the first movie, the song featured is Alice Cooper’s “Schools Out,” as we saw clips of the second film, and this trailer ironically features Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” as people are being killed.
The cast consists of some newcomers as well as some familiar faces from the first film. Olivia Welch, Emily Rudd, Sadie Sink, Ryan Simpkins, McCabe Slye, Ashley Zukerman, Gillian Jacobs, Kiana Maderia, Jordyn DiNatale, Matthew Zuk, Brandon Spink, Julia Rehwald and Fred Hechinger.
If you watched the first film, you got a glimpse of the Fear Street Part 2: 1978 storyline. The setting is at a summer camp called Camp Nightwing in the ’70s. More than 15 years before the first film’s setting, the evil in Shadyside was rampant.
This trailer has me even more excited for the second film than I was after viewing the first. Be sure to watch Fear Street Part 2: 1978 on Netflix on July 9. Remember the third film, Fear Street Part 3: 1666, will be released on July 16.
