Only in the conclusion do the events of 1978 really start to pay off in a truly satisfying way.

Part 2 is its own exhilarating adventure that showcases a dynamic cast of characters and revels in lots and lots of bloody murder.

Again, so much of what makes this work is an extraordinarily talented group of young actors who take the silliness of the witch’s curse and sell it with heartfelt conviction.

The characters... are complex and skilfully performed. It's just a shame that this time the big horror set pieces are so devoid of irony and so brutally violent.

A darker middle act, Fear Street Part Two: 1978 lacks the verve of 1994 but still delivers enjoyable summer camp-based bedlam.
