R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series of three Netflix movies promises a lot more summer “goosebumps” than might be expected.
The film trilogy–based on Stine’s string of teenage horror novels that began back in 1989–will be R rated, as reported by comicbook.com. And to drive home that point, check out the trailer for the trilogy elsewhere on this page.
Stine–who, of course, also authored the popular Goosebumps series–said his readers will be “in for a treat” with these films “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.”
And the creative minds behind those thrills include director Leigh Janiak, as well as Phil Graziadei, Kyle Killen, Zak Olkewicz and Kate Trefry. The actors so far confirmed for the films include Maya Hawke, Sadie Sink, Emily Rudd, Ryan Simpkins, Ashley Zukerman and Gillian Jacobs.
The films will be presented over three consecutive weeks in July, in this manner:
- Fear Street Part One: 1994 (airing July 2). In 1994, following a terrible tragedy in Shadyside, Ohio, a group of teens discover the horrible events that have plagued the town for years may not be random.
- Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (airing July 9). In 1978, the campers, counselors and maintenance staff at Camp Nightwing are divided over several issues, but they must band together to solve a horrifying mystery.
- Fear Street Part Three: 1666 (airing July 16). In 1666, a colonial town is embroiled in a witch hunt that will have deadly consequences for centuries to come.
