In a first for Netflix and for the horror film genre, Netflix is announcing that the upcoming Fear Street Trilogy will be released as an epic summer movie event over three consecutive weeks this July:
- FEAR STREET PART 1: 1994 releasing globally on Netflix on July 2, 2021.
- FEAR STREET PART 2: 1978 releasing globally on Netflix on July 9, 2021.
- FEAR STREET PART 3: 1666 releasing globally on Netflix on July 16, 2021.
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.
“We filmed all three Fear Street movies over one crazy, bloody summer. It’s a dream that audiences now get to experience the story in the same way – back to back to back, with only a week of waiting in between. I can’t wait to welcome everyone into the world of Fear Street in 1994, 1978 and 1666!”, said Leigh Janiak, Director of the Fear Street trilogy
R.L. Stine, author of the best-selling horror series Fear Street added his thoughts on the adaptation, “Fear Street fans are in for a treat–and some major surprises. Readers know that the book series is rated PG. But the movies are rated R. That means a lot more thrills– and a lot more terror! I have seen Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy releasing on Netflix in July and I can tell you the scares and the SCREAMS are more than I ever expected. What fun to see the horrors of Shadyside come to life!”
