Fear Street: Part Three – 1666 (2021)

fear_street_ver5_xxlg

In 1666, a colonial town is gripped by a hysterical witch-hunt that has deadly consequences for centuries to come, and it’s up to teenagers in 1994 to finally put an end to their town’s curse, before it’s too late. (Letterboxd)
Y’all, the 1666 portion here is badass (see the superbly scored scene with Sarah and Hannah in the chapel: “I don’t fear the devil.. I fear the mother who would let her daughter hang.. They want a witch? I will give them a witch”). The progressive twist on the previously told origin story is deliciously satisfying and retroactively adds some real beating-heart emotion and stakes to the trilogy, which is wrapped up nicely in the return to 1994, albeit without reaching the same emotional heights.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
