Netflix has announced its “Fear Street Trilogy” horror film series will be released over three consecutive weeks this July. Each installment is directed by Leigh Janiak and based upon the teen horror “Fear Street” books by R.L. Stine. The first movie, “Part 1: 1994,” will start streaming July 2, followed by “Part 2: 1978” on July 9 and “Part 3: 1666” on July 16. The sprawling ensemble cast includes “Stranger Things” favorites Maya Hawke and Sadie Sink, plus Gillian Jacobs, Jordana Spiro, and more.

The streaming giant’s official synopsis for trilogy reads: “In 1994, a group of teenagers discovers that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations may all be connected — and that they may be the next targets. Based on  R.L. Stine’s best selling horror series, the trilogy follows the nightmare through Shadyside’s sinister history.”

“We filmed all three ‘Fear Street’ movies over one crazy, bloody summer,” Janiak said in a statement. “It’s a dream that audiences now get to experience the story in the same way — back to back to back, with only a week of waiting in between. I can’t wait to welcome everyone into the world of ‘Fear Street’ in 1994, 1978, and 1666!”

Added Stine, “‘Fear Street’ fans are in for a treat, and some major surprises. Readers know that the book series is rated PG. But the movies are rated R. That means a lot more thrills and a lot more terror! I have seen Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy releasing on Netflix in July and I can tell you the scares and the SCREAMS are more than I ever expected. What fun to see the horrors of Shadyside come to life!”
