Doh, you are right that she used the Epi then CPR, wrong sequence. She has not watched enough tv shows about doctors where they all have that scene where the doc scrambles to revive a patient using CPR/a defibrillator and when that does not immediately work says Adrenaline stat! before plunging the needle into the heart.

Thinking about real life scenarios, I had to learn first aid in high school (2002) and pass the CPR test. So that's where my knowledge comes from. I wonder if they still do that in high school.

I think I liked Part 1 better, but still enjoyed Part 2. These have been fun.

It would have been interesting to see how these would’ve performed if they went through with how they were originally conceived by premiering monthly in theatres (in a world without COVID and without Disney buying 20th Century). I would bet these are doing well for Netflix though, and it would be cool if they continue making them.

Same tone and style, set in summer camp. Pretty much what you'd expect. Will be fun to see how it finishes.

Lots of innocent kids die. There's something about innocents and bystanders dying that breaks my heart a little.

I was a big R.L. Stein fan when I was around 10-13 years old. I never really read Fear Street. Goosebumps was already an expensive habit to keep collecting them monthly. It's kind of neat to see his stories getting this treatment nearly 30 years later.

Returning to my question of gore in the 2nd part, if I had no problem with the kills in the first (ax in head, head through bread slicer) I should be fine with part 2? Anything much more extreme than the two kills I just mentioned might be too much for me to digest in one sitting or without doing that quirky thing I do where I sometimes fast forward through a gory part of a film as I kind-of watch the action go by really fast with my eyes half-open.

I really enjoyed Fear Street '78. It's a mix of Stranger Things and 70's/80's slasher flicks. Although, compared to slashers from that era, this doesn't have the same level of blood and boobs. It felt like they held back on showing too much gore and nudity, unlike 70's & 80's horror which tried to fit in as much as possible. Despite that, this movie was a whole lot of fun. If you liked Fear Street 1994, then you'll like this one too.

If you were fine with Part 1, then you'll be fine with Part 2. That head slicer scene was the goriest thing so far.

Wow. I watched the first movie last night and it was terrible. Really stunk the joint out. Horrible, flat, generic junk.This movie needed more 90s songs popping on the soundtrack for no reason whatsoever. Was this made for and rejected by CW, so they just edited in more profanity and violence to give it an R-rating and dumped it on Netflix? None of these characters were anything but one-dimensional; I found myself rooting for the slasher.

Does anyone in this town have adequate lighting?

Re: Fear Street Trilogy (2021, D: Janiak) - Based on R.L. Stine's novels - Netflix

Just finished the 2nd one. I think I probably liked the first one just a bit more, but I still am enjoying these quite a bit.

Yeah, there is definitely some CW melodrama stuff that bogs it down a little, but I really appreciate that they are trying for a real slasher and not shying away from the tropes that make that genre fun.

I do wish that this one would have slowed down a bit. Once the kills start, it goes full speed until the end. I wish there was a bit more "Jason-esque" stalking involved, but it was still fun.

I am apprehensive about the next one. That time frame does nothing for me, and I worry they are going to try to be too serious, since I cant really picture a campy version of the 1600s.

Regardless, I'm a fan of what they are trying to do, and hope it spawns more attempts.

I looked up the director. She is the wife of one of the Duffer Brothers who directed Stranger Things. Not too surprising. I bet a lot of the same crew worked on this.

My guess was the pitch was Scream -> Friday the 13th -> VVitch.

Looking forward to next weeks finale.

I like Part 2 better than Part 1, mostly because I didn’t care for the Deena character.

The R-rated material still surprised me since this is a RL Stine series. Throws me off haha

I watched the first movie last night. It had some things I liked, especially the throwback to 1990s style horror movies.

I'm not sure what to think about the supernatural element of this. I did think some of it was a little over the top. They jammed in a lot to try to explain it. I would have preferred a more straight forward slasher pic. There was some good kills though.

I tried watching the first one. Good opening scene, followed by cringy teen drama. I gave up after 20 min. I did like the music. Maybe I'll try again when I'm in a better mood for this stuff.

In my opinion, don't waste your time. It doesn't get better.

Ugh. Agree with everything you said. The second one was just as terrible.

I thought part-3 tied the series together nicely but then that very last shot.
Spoiler:
opens it up for a sequel, but there shouldn't be

Watched the first one. It was okay but why did they go so far out of their way to make the leads so insufferable?

Yikes, Im having trouble watching part 3. So boring!

It just drops you into 1666 with no explanation as to why were watching the same actors set in that time period.
