Fear Street Trilogy finale

The Fear Street trilogy reached its end on Friday, 16 July.

Fear Street: 1666 follows the heroine, Deena Johnson (Kiana Madeira), as she encounters the exhumed body of supposed witch Sarah Fier.

After trying to attach Sarah’s severed hand to her body, Deena wakes up in 1666 in Union, as Sarah herself.

The third and final film in Leigh Janiak’s Fear Street series, adapted from R.L. Stine’s book, pulls back the veils of time to reveal the long-buried truth behind the witch’s curse – and the root of Shadyside’s mutual animosity with its sister city Sunnyvale.

According to CBR.com, while the Puritan society of Union is trying its best to till the land, its teens — as hormone-driven as the modern chapters — seek to entertain themselves with fireside raves, berries that get them high and, of course, sex.

Deena soon learns Sarah was never actually a witch and the real culprit was Solomon Goode (Ashley Zukerman), who framed Sarah for the spooky goings on in the town and hanged her for his own crimes.

After Sarah’s story is told, Fear Street Part 3 returns to the present day for a final showdown with Solomon Goode’s present-day heir, Sheriff Nick Goode.

Who is Pastor Cyrus Miller?

Pastor Cyrus Miller is the father of Hannah Miller, Sarah Fier’s romantic interest.

After Hannah tells Sarah there’s something wrong with her dad, Pastor Cyrus Miller, flies start buzzing around him – the franchise’s way of indicating he’s possessed – causing the girls to panic.

Cyrus locks himself in the church with the town’s children, including Sarah’s brother, Henry (Benjamin Flores Jr), and Constance (Sadie Sink).

In one of the trilogy’s most gruesome scenes, the possessed pastor plucks the children’s eyes out, as well as his own – which explains the scene in Fear Street Part Two where Alice (Ryan Simpkins) has a vision of the eyeless dead.

Fans of the trilogy have taken to Twitter to discuss the pastor’s gruesome killings:
