Fear Street Flashback (12)

Why? Because FEAR STREET was like, my favorite series growing up.

Originally released in December, 1995.

Timely, no?

Hmm. The New Year's Party was a little disappointing, to come right out and say it. Perhaps because New Year's eve is so full of hope and promise of a new year that it really wasn't scary. Or more likely, there was simply no tie between the two stories in the book. They seemed forced together for the sake of making it work, without justifying why the characters were who they said they were or explaining the paranormal elements. There was a very slow build up to the actual party on New Year's eve. And then when everyone got there, it was all very short and jumped to the conclusion. Boo, Mr. Stine! The cover is one of the creepier ones in the whole Fear Street series. It would have been great to stay at Liz's party a little longer and look around her gloomy decoration theme. The final ending might surprise some readers, but all in all I think most will feel let down.

Fear Rating: 1 out of 3 Screams
