Fear Street:1994 Review

Fear Street 1994, like any other horror film, is frightening… unique.

The story starts with a girl closing late after working late at Shadyside mall. They quickly introduced us to her friend, Ryan, who scares her with balloon humans.

But things escalated quickly as someone in a dark cloak and a skull mask started chasing the girl, trying to stab her.

Unfortunately, the killer caught up with her, but before she took her last breath, she pulled off the mask of the killer and realized it was her friend.

“It’s me, Ryan,” she said, crying. Out of nowhere, a police officer shot Ryan in the head.

Before the police shot Ryan, though, we got to see how ghastly he looked. Certainly, something prompted him to kill his friend.

Unfortunately, their deaths were ruled to be typical Shadyside tragedies.

Shadyside is a town known for various murders and missing people that have gone ignored and unresolved for decades. Also, the low quality of life in Sunnyvale can be said to have an unappealing effect on the attractiveness of the city, especially when contrasted with the beautiful neighboring city of Sunnyvale. These two towns are linked because they are the opposite of Sunnyvale, which includes incredibly smug people.

Afterward, we were introduced to a bunch of teenagers.

Deena is Josh’s big sister who is currently depressed about the abrupt end of her relationship with her girlfriend.

Josh, on the other hand, is a geek who obsesses over serial killers, and, well, he has a huge crush on one of his sister’s best friends, Kate.

We meet Deena’s other friends, Kate and Simon, who are obsessed with this whole “witch thing in Shadyside town.”

Rumors began to fly around about the girl who had died. Simon believes it’s the “Witch possessing people to start killing.”

I mean…

This story felt like any other typical teen movie at first.

The students of Shadyside and Sunnyvale came together to hold a candlelight vigil for the girl who died, but they ended up fighting when Deena’s ex-boyfriend said something disparaging about Shadyside.

After candlelight, the Shadyside kids returned home, but were attacked by Deena’s Samantha, her new boyfriend, and some other friends.

On both occasions, they just wanted to mess with each other, but things escalated when Deena took a keg of juice and opened the back door of the school bus just to throw them off.

However, when Deena’s nose begins to bleed, the keg of juice falls out of her grasp, striking Samantha and her friends and sending them skidding into the woods.

This is where it gets interesting!

Samantha’s nose bleeds onto the ground as soon as she gets out of the car, and she sees a witch!

Her blood triggers the witch, who sends out a bunch of dead serial killers to kill Samantha.

Imagine a bunch of serial killers from the 1800s coming back to life to take revenge on innocent kids.

It seemed quirky and fun at first, until two of the kids died.

Deena protects Samantha at all costs and her brother, Josh, soon realizes they were after Samantha and were tracking her from the smell of her blood.

I like the “tracking through her blood” part. Such a brilliant and different twist! But I’m not surprised… R.L Stine is one of the greatest to ever do it! 

As I said, the serial killers followed the scenes of Samantha’s blood, so the kids decided to lure the serial killers and burn them.

Normally, you’d think this would work, but a few minutes after burning them, they wake up again.

They decided to kill Samantha with a drug overdose and then bring her back. It worked, but their two friends died.

Deena, Josh, and Samantha won… Well, that was until Samantha stabbed Deena several times.

The kids soon realized this was just the beginning!

Fear Street: 1994 Review

Goofs

I love the movie a lot, but this Fear Street: 1994 Review will not be biased because there were some goofs in the movie.

The application Benjamin Flores Jr’s character is chatting on uses the Calibri font. The plot takes place in 1994, yet this font was not introduced until 2007.

If the serial killers were after Samantha or her blood, why did they kill the nurses? I’m confused and can’t help but wonder if they smelled Samantha on the nurses.

Verdict 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Generally, this is a very brilliant horror movie with a unique storyline. I’ll be watching the second part on July 9th and the third part coming July 16th!
