Fear Street Flashback (14)

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

Originally released in March, 1996.

This one had so much potential! A high school theater group... a stalker... lots of characters that could double as suspects... tons of potential, I say. Unfortunately, it fell a little short of the cheap thrills goodness that I have come to expect from Mr. Stine and his infamous Fear Street. Serena isn't a very likable character, always focused on herself and a little mean to those around her. The guys aren't dreamy either, as neither of the three make any real sweet gestures towards Serena. And then the big reveal at the end, while intense, wasn't all that well explained. The only part I liked about this book was the silly idea of little sun stickers scaring poor Serena. A good marketing team would have included a few with the sale of the book!

Fear Rating: 1 out of 3 Screams
