I thought this one was a little better than Part 1. Maybe I'm just a sucker for a camp setting in a slasher flick. Nice "twist" at the end, although that was my original thought when they first cut to the flashback (spoiler). The way they have the third movie set up doesn't look too promising spoiler, but we'll see on due time. Stranger things have happened...

Just like Part One gave us a Scream pastiche, Fear Street Part Two: 1978 does something similar with late 70s, early 80s horror films. Though there's the witch's curse element, it's essentially a slasher flick set in a summer camp, with horny teens getting chopped to bits (but replace virginity with the rich part of town as a protective amulet, as per the first film - those rich kids are the real monsters and I do hope something bad happens to them at SOME point in the trilogy). The heroes are two sisters, one of which must survive to tell this story in 1994. The soundtrack, though it repeats some tunes from Guardians of the Galaxy (have those movies ruined 70s music for every other movie?), is as fun and evocative of the time period as 1994's were (and by including the original of a cover used there, makes you feel like you're watching the movies out of order, as opposed to this being a "prequel". I'm taking all the Fear Streets as one long story, so kind of giving them the same score - they all have a stand-alone story, but neither is exactly complete (which, in horror, is fine). If I like this chapter a little less, it's simply because I'm less interested in this era of horror films.
