Fear Street Part Three: 1666 Reviews

"After Part 2 I had some hope that this trilogy could be salvaged. Unfortunately, Fear Street Part Three: 1666 just serves to hammer the final nail in the coffin of the series.

The period setting felt like a mix of The Crucible and The Witch but didn't succeed at the style of either. The accents were awful as well. At least the production values were better than other period horror pieces I've seen recently (*cough* The Reckoning *cough*).

Mercifully, the obscene number of obnoxious needle drops is dramatically reduced from the previous two instalments (there aren't many bangers released during the 17th century to be fair), but they still manage to squeeze them in where they can.

The film does manage to link together everything into a full overarching narrative, but I can't help but feel that Part 2 was almost pointless to the overall story. This is quite ironic given that I thought the second part was the strongest part and the high point of the trilogy, but ultimately it'll just serve as a mildly entertaining interlude within a highly mediocre set of films. I wouldn't waste my time watching this trilogy, I didn't even really get much entertainment out of it and it felt like one giant slog." - willcrabbe

"To wrap this trilogy up...part 1 is a lame attempt at a scream movie, part 2 was a Tolerable Friday the 13th knock off and part 3 is almost unwatchable swing at being like the crucible. Part 2 I thought was a solid 6 star, part 1 was a solid 4 but part 3, was barley worth 2 stars. It was like it was written by a high school drama student at best. I'd say just save your time but to each their own." - shortythepimp-26852

"I really didn't like Fear Street part 1, but I really enjoyed part 2. Part 3 starts off really well. The 17th century setting was a breath of fresh air to me, and I loved that they were finally exploring the backstory of the witch. The cast was doing a really good job and there were a lot of great scary scenes. Then the second have takes a dive. The writing begins to plummit, characters start making stupid decisions, and the suspense carried from the first act starts to sizzle out. This film probably had the weakest climax out of all three films, and since this is the last one, thats not a good thing. I enjoyed the first half, didn't like the second. But if you've been enjoying the entire trilogy so far, you'll probably like this way more than me." - averylubocki

"To start this off, I'll openly state that this is the lowest rating I've ever given a film. Most films I dislike, even hate, I simply just ignore, not wanting to spoil or taint the film for those who may enjoy it.

Now, with that out of the way, what follows can only be seen as an example of how truly disappointed I am in not only this film, but the filmmakers themselves.

Those accents, those damned darned "Irish" accents are the least convincing, and most insulting I've ever heard put to screen. When, oh when, will American's realise that they will never pull off a convincing Irish accent, and yet they never fail to try. While I typically find it frustrating to hear my accent so poorly done, I do enjoy hearing parodies or jokes at our expense. After all, we typically have a good sense of humour. So had this film been made as a comedy, I would have enjoyed it far more, because it is far from the serious film it pretends to be. It's hard to follow a storyline, when I can't understand half the accents, and I'm pretty sure the actors can't understand themselves either.

For clarity, I will now list several examples of more convincing "Irish" accents on screen; Gerard Butler in PS I Love You, Warwick Davis in Leprechaun, Mel Gibsons Scottish accent in Braveheart, Donkey from Shrek when he imitates his Scottish accent, a toaster when it pings.

All fine examples of better accents that I would be far less insulted had you said they sounded just like me. Infact, compared to this film, I would simply thank you for the praise." -  markkullas

"It's a typical Netflix Production. Decent budget, nice premise, nostalgic elements. Then the reality : At the beginning it looks promising, then it falls slowly apart but goes on and on until it feels like a chore to finish it. The story is dragged out and the twist are only surprising if one is truly not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree." - noirink-12054
