This Terrifying New Sequel Is #1 Movie on Netflix After Just 4 Days

The scary new sequel to Fear Street Part One: 1994 is here to shake up your streaming queue.

The terrifying follow-up film, Fear Street Part Two: 1978, just premiered on Netflix a few days ago, and it’s already claimed the number one spot on the streaming service’s list of most-watched movies. (It’s currently ranked above Major Grom: Plague Doctor, Fear Street Part One: 1994, Mother's Day, How I Became a Superhero and Kung Fu Panda.)

Fear Street Part Two: 1978 is the second installment in the highly anticipated trilogy, which follows a group of teenagers living in Shadyside, Ohio. The first movie focuses on the teens as they realize they might be the next targets in a string of murders.

This time, they travel back in time to visit Camp Nightwing, which is being targeted by another killer. Can the campers fight for their survival?

“There’s something holding us down,” someone says in the clip. “Cursing us.”

Part Two features some of the same cast as Part One, like Kiana Madeira (Deena), Olivia Scott Welch (Sam), Maya Hawke (Heather) and Benjamin Flores Jr. (Josh). Other stars include Sadie Sink (Ziggy), Emily Rudd (Cindy), Ryan Simpkins (Alice), McCabe Slye (Tommy) and Matthew Zuk (Mayor Will Goode).

The Fear Street trilogy was directed by Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon). Although it’s based on the namesake book series by R. L. Stine, the filmmaker also co-wrote the script alongside Phil Graziadei (Not Fade Away) and Zak Olkewicz (Lights Out).

BRB, scheduling a Fear Street marathon to coincide with the premiere of Part 3: 1666 on July 16.
