FEAR Street Part 2: 1978 fans found the Netflix film far too similar to the Friday 13th franchise.

- The most terrifying horrors on Netflix
- The best true crime series on Netflix
Based on RL Stine’s teen novels, the second film leapt back in time to trace the origins of a curse, one that turned law-abiding residents of Shadyside into bloodthirsty killers.
Series writer-director Leigh Janiak sets a mystery to uncover that’s more complex than who’s behind the mask.
However, many fans have branded the film a copycat of Friday the 13th.
One said: "My hopes are that 1978 wins me over a little bit more with its Friday the 13th vibes I'm getting!"

Another penned: "I didn't think much of #FearStreet1994 , but #FearStreet Part 2 is a significant improvement.
"It still feels a bit like Goosebumps with gore, but the story (such that it is) does begin to come together.
