This summer’s most anticipated horror property is a three-week trilogy of films based on RL Stine’s Fear Street series of young-adult novels.
The three interconnected stories take place over three different time periods – 1994, 1978, and 1666 – and put a decidedly ‘R’-rated spin on the formerly ‘PG’ novels.
