According to most of the user reviews on IMDb I skimmed through it is absolute garbage.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

It was a lot of fun. If you like horror movies, particularly more old school slashers of the 80-90s then its worth a watch.

Haven't seen the trailer, I took a peek at the cast but it didn't spark any interest.

Here's the top review:

Huge Let down 4/10

I was really looking forward to this movie. I grew up in the 90's and loved Fear Street books. I had and read the whole series. The movie started out great, in a mall which was totally 90s teen culture. Once the opening credits rolled and they introduced the main characters it was all downhill. The only thing they captured from the 90s was the music, which they ruined by cramming in a different song every 5 seconds in the most random places. That's where the 90s end. The characters are all just a bunch of whiny Gen Zers, trying to dress like they are from the 90s, like typical Gen Zers. Whoever made this should have watched some horror movies from the actual 90s for inspiration, because in Scream, I Know What you Did Last Summer, The Craft, etc... nobody sat around whining about their feelings every five seconds, especially when they were being chased by crazed killers. This movie was also extremely uneven and tried to be too many things at once. Slasher flick, superatural, and cultural warfare between towns, which made no sense and could have just been left out completely. Like the main character breaking up with her girlfriend because she moved one town over. There were cars back then to travel to the next town over, but they make such a big deal out of it you would think it was in the days of the covered wagon. All the constant emotional conversations just made the movie drag when it could have been exciting and fun. It got to the point where I just couldn't wait for it to end. Very disappointing.

Yes, the movie has some flaws, but this review is way too critical IMHO. For me, a movie (or TV show) doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be good enough to enjoy watching. Of course some people are triggered by stuff more easily than others and thus can't enjoy it.

And I always find it fascinating how different people decide what to watch. I typically pay little attention to the cast. I tend to decide after watching the trailer and - if possible - checking the IMDb ratings.

Re: Fear Street Part 1: 1994

I don't know anything about the books. If I were to watch this I'd have to get to know the books. I'm weird that way, I can't have just a piece of the cake.

I have limited time for media consumption and if there is nothing of interest for me I won't even bother with the trailer.

So I decided not to be interested before I read the review.

That might be a bit weird, but even more than that it's very restrictive... in the sense that you can't easily start to watch a show that's based on 10 books. cool

Tell me about it! I remember a time when it was hard to find something good to watch - now it's about finding the time to watch all the good stuff out there. smile
