Fear Street Opening Scene

Fear Street Part 1: 1994 hits Netflix this week, kicking off the first in a new trilogy inspired by the work of R.L. Stine. Ahead of the first film’s premiere, Netflix has gone ahead and released the first 5 minutes. The opening scene features Stranger Things breakout Maya Hawke as a very unlucky mall employee being targeted by a masked killer. It’s an opening meant to invoke the now-iconic opening scene of Scream, and it’s pretty damn rad. So head to the mall, grab an Orange Julius, buy something offensive from Spencer’s Gifts, and watch the Fear Street opening scene below.

Fear Street Part 1 1994 Review

A blood-drenched love letter to horror fans who came of age in the era of ScreamLeigh Janiak‘s Fear Street Part 1: 1994 is a creepy, funny, ultra-violent take on the type of teen-centric horror popularized by R.L.
