Based on R. L. Stine’s namesake book series, three entries in Fear Street’s film series have sparked a renewed interest in the masher genre. The films show social and economical issues while remaining true to the most iconic tropes of the genre. The story is set in Shadyside. There, rampaging murderers are so common, it has been nicknamed “the killer capital of the USA”. The film follows Deena, a Shadyside-native, Josh, and their friendship as they learn that a 350-year-old curse is responsible for all the deaths and misery that their town is experiencing.
As the main characters try to solve the curse, Shadyside’s bloody past and Sunnyvale’s near-utopian neighbor Sunnyvale are explored in the two next films, 1978′ and ‘1666. The third film features an open ending, in the tradition of horror/mystery films. We’ve got your back if that makes you wonder if there will ever be Fear Street 4.
Fear Street Part 4 release date
At this moment, Fear Street Part 4 doesn’t have an official release date. If the movie does happen, it is likely to be out sometime in the summer, 2022. However, that is only speculation.
Fear Street 4 New & Returning Cast
Fear Street cast members will not be returning to the series for sequels or spinoffs. However, the Fear Street trilogy created an interesting avenue for actors to make their return, even if some of their characters were lost. Kiana madeira plays Sarah Fier. Benjamin Flores Jr. is Sarah’s father and plays Josh in Fear Street Part 3. Ashley Zukerman, Sadie Sink, Olivia Scott Welch, Fred Hechinger, Julia Rehwald all return to their roles in the films as the ancestors.
Janiak stated in Fear Street’s press notes, “I’ve been obsessed by shows like Quantum Leap where the same actors are used but they’re in different periods… I also just personal interest in the concept of the past replaying itself, of ideas about reincarnation or being attached with your ancestors.” This trend could be continued in future installments. The original Fear Street cast may return to play Shadysiders in other historical periods.
Fear Street 4 Plot: What Can It Be About?
Deena can see in Sarah’s memories, that Solomon, an ancestral of Nick Goode was responsible for the curse. This curse has been preserved by the sons of first sons. Deena defeats Nick and saves Shadyside (and Sam) from certain death. In the last scenes, they visit Sarah’s grave to say their goodbyes. The scene between the credits shows that Solomon’s demonic text was taken.
The potential ‘Fear Street 4’ movie might feature another Goode family member as the original thief. This could allow the curse to continue once more. One of the Shadysiders that was responsible for the book theft could be the subject of the next film. Another possibility is that one of the Shadysiders might have the book and want to destroy Sunnyvale. After all, Shadyside suffered 350 years of hardship.
