REVIEW: Fear Street 1666

Fear Street 1666

The final installment in the Fear Street trilogy is 1666, picking right up from the events in Fear Street 1994 and continuing the story explained in Fear Street 1978.

The brilliant interweaving of the 3 movies, and the unique and different presentation of each by director Leigh Janiak is really outstanding. Each film follows it’s own format and pathway and is completely different from one another while continuing collective story.

Kiana Madeira takes over the role of Sarah Fier (kind of), at least in perspective and shows a colonial town that is completely gripped by the fear of witchcraft. Olivia Scott Welch is back in the role of Sam, who is the love interest of Sarah, and was tied to Deena in 1994.

The film’s approach is different from 1978, but it stands as a far superior film than 1994. Although I rank 1978 as the best of the bunch, 1666 isn’t far behind.

What it lacks in the brutal kills that personified in the first two films, it makes up for in story, twists, and logical execution. The tone of the film is noticeable and helps guide the viewer through a rather dark and ominous tale that has a solid payoff at the end.

Summary
A fantastic close to a brilliantly intertwined trilogy, filled with plenty of twists and suspense. The cast shines with their performances, especially with each taking on a new character.
