Fear Street returned to Netflix over the weekend for part two of its time hopping horror trilogy, and the cast took us all right back to 1978 with this second instalment. After the end of 1994 left us with unanswered questions on how Deena and Josh were going to triumph over the curse haunting their town for generations, they checked in with C. Berman – the mysterious only survivor from the summer camp massacre.

Fear Street: 1978 picks up right there, with Berman (played by Gillian Jacobs) telling the full story of everything that happened in that brutal night at summer camp. It’s as much fun as 1994, and just as gory. Its young cast have the kind of faces you feel like you know from somewhere, so this will tell you EXACTLY where you might remember everyone in Fear Street: 1978 from.
