The Fear Street trilogy from Netflix follows a group of teenagers who are plagued by a deadly curse, bringing the slasher genre into the young adult content category. Given that both series are aimed at a similar demographic, it’s easy to see how some viewers might mistakenly compare Fear Street to Stranger Things . Despite the fact that the events of the slasher film are a little darker than what occurs in Hawkins, Indiana. The Netflix projects have a nostalgic tone in common, but that’s not all they have in common. Since the release of Fear Street Part 1: 1994 on the streamer, fans have begun pointing out all of the similarities between the two series. There’s a lot of it, from talent crossovers to release dates for each project.
