Leigh Janiak directs Sadie Sink, Emily Rudd and Gillian Jacobs in this sequel / prequel to the first Fear Street horror flick – here we go to Seventies summer camp.
General consensus suggested that Fear Street Trilogy gets better the deeper you go but this is a mess. Too many characters. Far too long spent on lore that doesn’t have any direct relevance to what we are watching. Not enough focus on kills and stalks. And it should just be a decent budgeted Friday the 13th tribute, which should be the easiest thing in the world to pull off brainlessly. Still… Sadie Sink is always watchable. The soundtrack is neat.
