Based on Goosebumps writer RL Stine’s growing series, Fear Street Part One: 1994 is the first entry in a “movie trilogy event” that Netflix is hosting over the next three weekends. What we do know is that the trilogy consists of a slasher story that spans three eras – the first film is set in 1994, the second is set in 1978, and the third dates back to 1666.
