The Friday the 13th franchise may be gory but it never ever stepped over the line by exterminating kids, which can’t be stated for Anxiety Street 1978. This follow up is the second part of Netflix’s slasher trilogy Worry Street. In spite of being based upon a collection of bestselling books by Goosebumps scribe R.L. Stine, the Anxiety Road flicks are R-rated, gory, as well as never appropriate for young viewers.
As a matter of fact, Fear Street Part 2 while the very first installment Anxiety Street 1994 included some unexpected kills, the darker second getaway managed to damage a long-held, unmentioned slasher flick taboo. Set in the idyllic environments of Camp Nightwing, Worry Road 1978 is a timeless summertime camp slasher in the capillary of The Burning or Friday the 13th. Nonetheless, there is one very big distinction between Fear Road 1978 and every installation of the uber-popular scary collection starring covered up killer Jason Voorhees.
While the Friday The 13th collection seldom followed the bounds of good taste, the franchise business did fix a limit at having Jason in fact murder kids. This custom is completely overthrown by the Stephen King-referencing slasher Worry Road 1978, which sees its killer Tommy Slater eliminate countless youngsters (thankfully all offscreen, although their gruesome remains are briefly glimpsed after the fact). Unquestionably, the Friday the 13th films include Jason going after Tommy Jarvis in The Final Phase, while the slasher likewise quickly alarmed a cabin of young campers in Friday the 13th: Jason Lives. That claimed, he never damaged that kid-killing taboo in spite of racking up an excellent body count throughout the collection.
All told, Tommy Slater kills 4 kids during the occasions of Fear Road 1978, Fear Street Part 2 offing an only “corrections officer” during the summer season camp’s shade battle before after that eliminating a trio of youngsters who were “imprisoned” by their Sunnyvale opponents. Although the fatalities aren’t shown onscreen, it is still an uncommonly terrible event that few slasher flicks include and also even more evidence that the Concern Road series includes some terrifying bad guys in its trilogy of slasher scaries. Bad as Jason Voorhees can be, also the Camp Crystal Lake awesome of Friday the 13th fame can a minimum of claim he has never ever offed a defenseless child, while Fear Street 1978’s bad guy Tommy killed 4 in one film.
