Fear Street Part 2: 1978 with Sadie Sink and Emily Rudd
The 1980s produced some of the best summer camp horror movies such as The Burning, Cheerleader Camp, Sleepaway Camp, and Friday the 13th. These films etched into horror history as there is no safe place on campgrounds with a killer on the loose. With Netflix’s next film in its horror anthology Fear Street Part 2: 1978, the film brings the traditional slash and hack killer to a bunch of unexpecting teenagers at a summer camp.
Here’s the official synopsis of Fear Street Part 2: 1978:
Shadyside, 1978, school’s out for summer and the activities at Camp Nightwing are about to begin. But when another Shadysider is possessed with the urge to kill, the fun in the sun becomes a gruesome fight for survival.
The cast for this second installment includes Sadie Sink, Emily Rudd, Ryan Simpkins, and McCabe Slye.

The premise of the story is based on R.L. Stine’s book series titled Fear Street, which is quite a departure than his children series of Goosebumps.
