In the world of horror, there are many film adaptations based on popular books. In 2015, a film franchise was launched, inspired by the beloved Goose bumps series. This year, three films based on RL Stine’s film Fear street novels are going to come out. Unlike the first, the Fear street The trilogy will be rated R for “strong bloody violence”.
For those who have read the source material, the news may not come as much of a surprise. A difference between Goose bumps and Fear street is that the latter was intended for a more adolescent audience. Goose bumps was primarily aimed at attracting school-aged children. Teens are generally able to see more mature material in works of fiction, which applies to all mediums, such as film. However, the films will be more focused on adults than teenagers. The surprise that might arise for some is the maturity of the adaptations.
- The ratings for the first two films in the upcoming series reads as follows:
- Street of Fear Part 1: 1994 – “Rated R for strong bloody violence, drug content, language and some sexual content. “
- Street of Fear Part 2: 1978 – “Rated R for gory horror violence, sexual content, nudity, drug use and language throughout.” “
Stine has seen what the features will include, and he’s very impressed. He recently said: “ Fear street fans will be in for a treat – and some major surprises. Readers know that the series of books is rated PG. But the films are rated R.. It means a lot more thrills – and a lot more terror! I saw Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy released on Netflix in July and I can tell you the scares and Screams are more than I expected. Fans should probably have their fears allayed when the creator of the original work likes an adaptation.
A description of the upcoming films read: “In 1994, a group of teenagers discovered that the terrifying events that had haunted their city for generations could all be linked – and that they could be the next targets. Based on RL Stine’s best-selling horror series, the trilogy follows the nightmare through the grim history of Shadyside. “
Each part of the Netflix horror franchise will take place in a different decade in human history. Part one takes place in the 90s, Second part in the 1970s, and Part three dates back to the 1660s. Some of the cast will be involved in several projects, such as Sadie Sink and Emily Rudd. The synopses of the three sections are available to the public.

In a recent statement, Janiak explained: “As a filmmaker making Fear street, but also as a movie lover I was so excited to pay homage to some of the great eras of horror movies. For 1994, Scream was above everything else – it’s’ 90s horror and, I think, one of the most brilliant movies ever made, period. Then for 1978 I had the opportunity to watch the heyday of slasher movies –Friday the 13th, Halloween, nightmare on Elm Street. For 1666… I found the best inspiration for me in Terence Malick’s beautiful, rotten world The new World. Anyone with a Netflix account will be able to view the titles when they are released.
