Fear Street Part Two: 1978

Fear Street Part Two: 1978

The second part in the Fear Street trilogy, Fear Street Part Two: 1978 truly exceeds expectations. Starting with where it left off in the first part, the second movie in this horror series is equally amazing. Compare it to the first one, and the second one feels more intense, scarier, more violent, and definitely more chilling.

This movie truly takes the storyline forward in a more befitting manner. There are so many good things to talk about this movie, let’s get right into it.

What’s so Good about “Fear Street Part Two: 1978”?

First of all, the performances in the second part feel more powerful. Although there are some really good performances in the first movie too, the acting in the second one definitely feels superior. Some amazing performances by Sadie Sink and Emily Rudd make this movie stand out in its genre.

What makes this movie better than Fear Street Part One: 1994 is that it hits the horror aspect of the storyline so well. The first part was more of an introduction to the whole Fear Street story, the second part really opens up the pure chilling horror aspect of the trilogy.

All in all, the second part is scarier than the first one and definitely more violent too. Another element that is really done well in this movie is the slashing part. The violence and blood which is essential in a movie genre like this one is executed in a very well-balanced manner. Each and every slash has been timed to perfection, which is a very hard thing to pull off.

The most remarkable thing about this trilogy is its story. The way the story has been constructed into three parts is truly fascinating. Starting the story in 1994 and then going back and tracing the origins has so far proved to be a great decision. It would’ve been impossible without the brilliant screenplay. 

Now, the success of both these initial parts will definitely increase the expectations for the finale. The first two movies have set the perfect tone for the final movie in the series. Let’s hope the final one delivers the goods as expected.

Bottom Line

I highly recommend the first two movies in this Fear Street trilogy. Definitely worth watching and worth talking about.
