Sequel to Netflix horror film trilogy which divided viewers has just been confirmed

Sequel to Netflix horror film trilogy which divided viewers has just been confirmed

The announcement was made on social media

Despite dividing viewers, a sequel has been confirmed to a Netflix horror movie trilogy.

The Netflix film was based on work of the same name by prestigious author, R.L. Stine.

You probably know him more for ruining your childhood with his Goosebumps series.

The films followed Deena Johnson (Kiana Madeira) and Samantha Fraser (Olivia Scott Welch) in their efforts to destroy an evil force that had been plaguing their quiet American town for centuries.

It also includes a few other very famous faces like Sadie Sink and Maya Hawke of Stranger Things fame.

Of course, we're talking about The Fear Street Trilogy, which was released on the streaming platform in 2021, with all three films dropping one week after each other.

Released under the titles Fear Street Part One: 1994, Fear Street Part Two: 1978 and Fear Street Part Three: 1666, the films were not based on any specific work by R.L. Stine.

The original trilogy divided opinion, with it this week revealed to be one of the 'most overrated' Netflix Originals films, according to new analysis.

The analysis looks at Metacritic reviews for Netflix Originals, ranking each of them by the difference between their verified critic score and the average user score left by the ordinary viewer.

Sadly for Fear Street Part One: 1994, it placed as the ninth most overrated, with viewers saying it was a little average compared to the critics reviews, who scored it higher.

The sequel, however, has been confirmed by R.L. Stine.

Unlike the trilogy, it will be directly based on one of the American's novels.

Maya Hawke had a role in Fear Street Part One.

In a statement on X, R.L. Stine wrote: "Movie news: I can finally announce that a new Fear Street movie is about to go into production for Netflix.

"It's based on my Fear Street book, The Prom Queen. Good news!"

Released in 1992, the novel is labelled a 'dance of death'.

It's synopsis reads: "A spring night… soft moonlight… five beautiful Prom Queen candidates… dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom - these should be the ingredients for romance.

"But stir in one brutal murder - then another, and another - and the recipe quickly turns to horror.

"Lizzie McVay realises that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one—and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over—for good?"

Sadie Sink also featured alongside her Stranger Things co star in Fear Street Part Two.

One fan replied: "Yesssss can't wait."

Another said: "We love slashers!"

A third wrote: "YES! Going to make sure I re-read it before I watch it when it comes out.

"I wouldn’t mind if all of the Fear Street books were made into movies.

"You wrote such great stories that we all identified with as teens and also scared the hell out of us.

"Thank you eternally for your work."

The Fear Street Trilogy can be streamed on Netflix.
