The R.L. Stine-based trilogy wraps up with this olden-times conclusion to the gory goings-on in Shadyside and Sunnyvale, and, it turns out, they saved the best for last. The satisfactory final chapter brings everyone from the first two films back together for a helluva ride. It’s still cartoonishly violent and far from memorable cinema, but as a worthy successor to Scream’s crown, Fear Street is a bloody good time.

3.5/5 stars
