Give Us All The Fear Street

Dance of death…A spring night…soft moonlight…five beautiful Prom Queen candidates…dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom—these should be the ingredients for romance. But stir in one brutal murder—then another, and another—and the recipe quickly turns to horror. Lizzie McVay realizes that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one—and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over—for good?

I read this book so many times when I was younger that the cover fell off. Stine was the author of my youth until I started with King. I feel like a lot of horror fans can relate. I also love that these films are for a more mature crowd and do not shy away from the violence and themes in his stories. Fear Street always made you feel like an adult when you read them, and the trilogy of films captured that feeling perfectly. Here's hoping that they get some of that cast to come back, not to mention Leigh Janiak back behind the camera. When we learn things like that, we will bring you the news. Maybe this means we see this before the end of 2024.
