The first official trailer for the horror film series known as the Fear Street Trilogy has been released. The Fear Street Trilogy is directed by Leigh Janiak and is based on the teenage horror book series of the same name by R.L. Stein. It will air on the Netflix streaming service on July 2, July 9 and July 16. The three films from the trilogy are titled Fear Street Part 1: 1994, Fear Street Part 2: 1978 and Fear Street Part 3: 1666. The films will center around a group of teenagers who discover that the horrifying events that took place in their town of Shadyside, Ohio, are all connected and that whoever is committing these terrifying crimes might just be targeting them next.

The trailer opens with the main characters going through their life in Shadyside. The main character Deena (Kiana Madeira) is heard saying that there was a time where things were good in the town, but now that is all gone. A character hears a phone ringing and goes to pick it up with a suspicious look. The character C. Berman (Gillian Jacobs) is heard on the other line saying that she is still alive. When the woman on the other line asks who this is, Berman replies, “it’s happening again.” The song “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor starts to play as the trailer cuts to a summer camp in Shadyside where the head counselor is seen announcing the start of the color war. The music suddenly comes to a stop as a girl is soon seen being murdered by an unknown figure with an ax. Berman explains that the murder was in 1978 and gives the exact number of days ago when it took place. A news report reveals that Shadyside has been given the nickname “Killer Capitol, U.S.A.”

As more murders are seen, the main group of teenagers approach Berman and ask how they end the murders as she was the only person who survived the previous events. German explains that they have to go back where it all started in 1666. In the past of 1666, the origin of Shadyside’s horrific trend of murders is shown as it is revealed that a witch cursed the town. The music starts to pick up as the teenagers are seen going up against several of the killers in Shadyside who range from normal slashers to supernatural entities before cutting to the title card.

The Fear Street Trilogy will premiere on Netflix on July 2, before officially wrapping up on July 16.
