The first chapter of Netflix Fear Street Trilogy, Street of Fear: 1994 landed delivering a serious slice of nostalgia not only for fans of the decade, but for mainstream slasher films as well. As part of the film’s program to Recapture the Historic Moment of 1994, director Leigh Janiak has assembled an incredible soundtrack that oscillates between heavy metal, RnB and some independent classics of the time. Considering the importance that a mixtape plays in slasher events, it’s a smart decision to make the music such a strong presence.
A little inevitably compared to Strange things – and there’s a special thank you to one of the Duffer brothers in the credits – horror is a far cry from the friendly young teenage spirit of RL Stine’s original Fear Street books, but it works. Turning up the gore and adding in inventive killings and multiple villains was an inspired move, especially when paired with Rob Zombie’s supernatural rock. And on the other side of the coin, Janiak’s team responds to the rich vein of adolescent angst and growing tensions with age by adding Radiohead, Sophie Hawkins and Roberta Flack.
