The third installment of the Fear Street trilogy finds the gang in 1666 where we finally meet Sarah Fier and learn of the actions that led to the years long massacres in Shadyside. Devil worshiping takes center stage as we find out what’s behind the curse on Shadyside and I can honestly say I did not anticipate what would transpire throughout this movie but I was pleasantly surprised.
The movie starts out in 1666 in a colonial town in some unknown region of the world. I tried to figure out where they were located based on their accents but couldn’t place it. From what I could grasp, it seems that the towns folk condemned Sarah and proclaimed her a witch because she had a relationship with another woman. So in reality, Sarah Fier was no witch, she was just vilified for loving who she loved.
At the start I thought this movie was going to take place completely in 1666 but after a good while we quickly find ourselves back in 1994 which makes sense since the point of this ending is to find out how to save Sam. As they figure out what really happened and who really is behind all the murders, the kids spring into action and devise a plan to eradicate the killers and save Shadyside from its current never-ending curse.
Once again I thought the acting was very well done and I kind of like how they used all the characters in the first two films in different aspects in this last one. I’m glad they highlighted Martin more in this film. He was in the first film for only a short while and I always felt he would be a great character. The montage that was shown where they prepped the mall to welcome the killers so they could trap and destroy them was pretty fun and cool. It was like that sequence in Home Alone where Kevin set up the traps to catch the burglars.
Overall loved how this film tied everything together and all in all this was a fun trilogy to watch. The characters and their development throughout this series was great to see and they really acquired a good following for this three movie event. Well done Netflix.
