Fear Street Part Three: 1666 movie review - Aussieboyreviews
IS THE STORY OF FEAR STREET PART THREE: 1666 AN IMPROVED AND IMPRESSIVE ENDING TO THE TRILOGY?
After 1994 and 1978 were flat rubbish, you’d think Part Three is gonna prove this trilogy as a disappointment. However, although Fear Street is a disappointing trilogy, 1666 is improved and very impressive.
A colonial town in 1666 is gripped by a witch hunt that has deadly consequences for centuries to come, while the teenagers in 1994 try to stop their town’s curse before it’s too late.

Aussie boy's thoughts
Netflix’s disappointing trilogy closes with a surprisingly gripping tale, firmly marking Fear Street Part Three: 1666 as not only the best section of this R. L. Stine story, but the only watchable section. 1994 and 1978 were undeniably terrible. The critics were crazy whilst overrating them as gory but great slashers. Although 1666 mainly features bad acting and a satisfactory pace, what makes it more enjoyable than the first two parts is how solid and unexpectedly entertaining the whole story was.
Since Fear Street 3 is the closing to the trilogy, you’ll definitely be satisfied and the entire mystery ends up making a lot of sense. Honestly, why couldn’t the other movies in the trilogy be just as moving and exciting as this? The climax is also a heck lot better than the climatic moments of Part One and Two. It finally gets to the reasoning of the mystery with a handful of elegant twists.
The producers of this instalment knew exactly what they were aiming for, and they hit the target! It’s great how Part Three was genuinely enjoyable, but it doesn’t make up for the slowness of it, as well as the other flat movies. Those who have enjoyed the trilogy’s other stories will adore this fascinating tale, but in conclusion, Fear Street is just a flat and pretty pointless trilogy on Netflix.
