Miles better than the first one. This time it actually feels like a slasher film. It moves pretty slow and drags on a bit but when it gets to the exciting parts, it's brutally fun. And I'm a sucker for camp themed horror! I mean, slasher in summer camp setting, what could go wrong? It nails in blending the tropes with other elements like witchcraft and mythology making it very engaging. I really like how it's mostly terror and suspense, you won't see much camp or humor. The camerawork, the atmosphere, and the practical effects are all done nicely. I enjoy the soundtrack and it's less intrusive this time, which is great. The kill count is pretty low though and the kills aren't as creative. It shares one same issue I had with the first film, the characters are not really interesting. But I'm glad they're not as irritating. Overall it's enjoyable spooky fun time. I can't wait to see how they wrap things up!

Really liking where this is going, solid installment and really nailed the classic summer camp slasher feel. I do wish they had a kill on par with the bread slicer from 1994, and wish they used more of some of the other killers we have glimpsed. Ready for some 1600s witch vibes where we can really sympathize with Sarah’s plight as I’m sure she gets rough goings by the people of Sunnyvale.

Well, at least it was better than the first one? The acting was an improvement (thank you, Sadie Sink), at least some characters were likeable but the rest was just a poorly executed cliché. And I still don’t care about the 94' characters or the rather convoluted curse. Still one part to make it more tolerable.

Part Two of the Fear Street trilogy, 1978, picks up from where the first installment left off and delves deeper into the curse of Sarah Fier. This time, the story is set in the late 1970s, introducing new characters such as Ziggy, Emily, and Alice, who embody the stereotypes of the era and align wit More

Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.

If you are in a position to do so, then you could actually watch this movie before the "Fear Street Part One 1994".

I think a large part of this is that Sadie Sink is an amazing actress and while she doesn't carry the movie, she outshine More
