Fear Street Part Two transports us back to the late 1970s and into the heyday of the slasher movies.

Bookended with the core Nineties-set story, this segment recounts the tale of the Camp Nightwing massacre, as relayed by C. Berman (Gillian Jacobs), the sole survivor of the slayings.

According to RogerErbert.com, Camp Nightwing, the setting of the movie’s killings, takes after cinematic predecessors such as Camp Crystal Lake (Friday The 13th), Camp Blackfoot (The Burning), and Camp Arawak (Sleepaway Camp), among others.

Fear Street Part Two is about teens – but not exactly for teens. Parents should think twice before letting their kids watch the scary movie.
