Fear Street: 1666

Fear Street: 1666 ★★½

"I don't fear the devil, Hannah. I fear the neighbor who would accuse me. I fear the mother who would let her daughter hang. I fear union."

The 1666 part does well to tell the persecution story in the time it has, and it really informs the previous movies, but at this point it's clear I'm not convinced of the talent behind the camera — these just aren't my cuppa, and that's fine.

Wasn't sure I was even going to watch this as folk horror isn't my thing and I wasn't exactly on the end of my seat wrt finding out what's going on, but I'm glad I saw it through, and the end is worth it. This is certainly something different, and I commend the commitment that went into this trilogy.

I enjoyed the second half of the movie quite a bit and thought the takedown was clever and fun

Here's to not being born female and/or gay in the 1600s!
