Reviews for Fear Street: Part Three - 1666 ( ) 720p

IMDB: 8.2 / 10

Is this a horror movie?

While I was watching this part of this trilogy I was laughing because this story is so childish that I only laughed at it. I don't know how this movie have 6/10 because it looks like a 10 years old child wrote it. In this movie is bad vfx, story, screenplay and a director. This is garbage, nothing else. Editor is an idiot because editing is in this movie very bad.

Awful trilogy, even for Netflix

To wrap this trilogy up...part 1 is a lame attempt at a scream movie, part 2 was a Tolerable Friday the 13th knock off and part 3 is almost unwatchable swing at being like the crucible. Part 2 I thought was a solid 6 star, part 1 was a solid 4 but part 3, was barley worth 2 stars. It was like it was written by a high school drama student at best. I'd say just save your time but to each their own.

If possible I will give 0 star

Not logical things happening story weak bad acting they're in 1666 but looking from there acting it's look like 2000 clearly Netflix can't make good movies.

Please stop making movies.

The main actress, Madeira, is absolutely horrible. Aside from her disastrous accent (they're all bad), she continues to talk in this weird way that is clearly not her natural voice. It's like a lisp but not a lisp. Not sure if she's trying to make herself more memorable by having some trademark, but it's just bad. The 2nd installment was decent, but still lacked the personality and humor you got from '70s and '80s horror. Not sure why everyone is praising the director. These films all fall short of what they could be. So much potential, but never reached.

As an Irish person I just couldn't...

Why the accents!? Why!? I honestly couldn't stand it. Its basically offensive to me. They could have just done a toned down American accent. Otherwise this is still a bad movie/trilogy. Copying elements from loads of horror movies isn't an homage unless the reference is on point, this is like a Gen Z kid that only saw the trailers of all the classic horror movies then tried to write one giving them all a wink. That and they've definitely never met an Irish person.

Accents that make your ears bleed. Just don't watch it.

To start this off, I'll openly state that this is the lowest rating I've ever given a film. Most films I dislike, even hate, I simply just ignore, not wanting to spoil or taint the film for those who may enjoy it.

Now, with that out of the way, what follows can only be seen as an example of how truly disappointed I am in not only this film, but the filmmakers themselves.

Those accents, those damned darned "Irish" accents are the least convincing, and most insulting I've ever heard put to screen. When, oh when, will American's realise that they will never pull off a convincing Irish accent, and yet they never fail to try. While I typically find it frustrating to hear my accent so poorly done, I do enjoy hearing parodies or jokes at our expense. After all, we typically have a good sense of humour. So had this film been made as a comedy, I would have enjoyed it far more, because it is far from the serious film it pretends to be. It's hard to follow a storyline, when I can't understand half the accents, and I'm pretty sure the actors can't understand themselves either.

For clarity, I will now list several examples of more convincing "Irish" accents on screen;Gerard Butler in PS I Love You, Warwick Davis in Leprechaun, Mel Gibsons Scottish accent in Braveheart, Donkey from Shrek when he imitates his Scottish accent, a toaster when it pings.

All fine examples of better accents that I would be far less insulted had you said they sounded just like me. Infact, compared to this film, I would simply thank you for the praise.

The worst actress was the lead actress.

I didn't mind the LBGTQ stuff. It's pride month and all. I didn't mind the Irish accents. The early settlers were West Country, Devon, Dorset etc and that accent is really hard for Americans. The Irish is easier to do. I didn't mind the murky darkness that much. I just couldn't stand the lead actress. She made a poor story awful. She's really bad enabled by bad direction.

Just as bad as the others.

It's such a gorgeous looking movie, respectably acted, extremely well-presented, and a story so convoluted that it doesn't make sense.

It builds and builds to nothing, and what's with these accents?

It also has to do with editing, the editing in this film is extremely poor and it's horribly made, most of the shots are poorly handheld and so shaky.

I'm gonna give this film a D+.

It Could've Been Great

I saw what they were doing with the casting on this & I was excited. AWESOME to bring the 2 casts together & make it work this way.

The accents were not needed. Just tighten the affect so you don't sound too relaxed, but the accents went in & out and were inconsistent.

The other thing that bothered me was the fact that Part 3 has the opportunity to take the Fear Street Saga (particularly book 1: The Betrayal) and use THAT history and show the major divide between the Goodes and the Fiers and this now flips the narrative completely. If nothing, Sarah could still atone for the wrongs of her family, instead of making her the conduit of Susannah Goode.

Lastly, I REALLY felt the stuff with Hannah in this was SOOOOO forced. Please just tell a story tht makes sense. Don't try to equate this as a gay witch hunt. Such a letdown there. You could've still had a REALLY compelling story, but the ball was dropped.

The invaders in America would have sounded more German

Movie is very good, but those accents can be classified as offensive, the English (who are German related) that went to America would not have spoken like that, please stop trying to rob the Irish accent, it does not belong to you and never will.

Waste of 6 hours.....

The trilogy massively peaked at part 2 so its all downhill from here.

The irish accents are just laughable. If you want to have the characters as irish immigrants then at least be sure they can do the accent. We had to put the subtitles on to understand what was being said.

The person playing Sarah is not a good actress which perhaps is why part 2 is the best in the series. The script is weak and predicable.

Honestly i only watched it as i had already suffered the other 2.

7-8-9 Trilogy

I see lots of complaining, but I enjoyed it more and more along the way. It all made sense in the joining together of the story and most of all, it was very entertaining. For this 3rd installment, I give it a 9 for a good job bringing it all together and closing.

Literally an LGBTQ drama masquerading as a horror movie.

I was really excited to see part 3 and learn more about the witch instead I got an illogical lesbian melodrama that made no logical sense. This is 6 hours of my life I won't get back.

The worst part of Ep1 is the whole plot of Ep3.

The primary two actresses from Episode 1 are utterly unbelievable. Their accents in this movie are laughable along with much of the cast.

They get center stage again for episode 3 which bores us into oblivion with no scares, no real twists, and a waste of the audiences time.

Episode 1 was good enough, 2 was really good, and 3 is a train wreck. Very disappointing. Netflix should shoot for way better casting for its tent pole movies in the future.

The ending didn't help. It was predictable and again poorly acted. I seriously lowered my ratings of the first two movies after seeing how poorly the trilogy ended. Such a waste of time.

Fear the Worst

In some ways, it is difficult to pinpoint where the Fear Street films go wrong. They are pleasant looking enough, with that typical Netflix-cinematic look that is neither offensive, nor interesting. The story also is a similar brand of innocuous typicality, despite the series' penchant for homage often leaning a little too far into imitation. And while the films are never scary, they do bring an atmosphere that might seem vaguely appealing to horror fans.

Let me rephrase.

In most ways, it is difficult to pinpoint where, if at all, the Fear Street films go right.

"Fear Street: 1666," concludes Netflix's Fear Street trilogy in custom with the precedent laid out by the earlier two films; with a sloppily strung together mess of half-baked scares and substandard performances that never manage to elevate the lacklustre material.

It feels awkward to approach the Fear Street films with such scrutiny; they're just Netflix movies. But perhaps someone should have told that to writer/director Leigh Janiak before she developed these films into the unpleasantly self-serious entities that they are.

All three films, "1666," much included, never really figure out who they are intended for. In Janiak's heart of hearts, she must have wished to create the trilogy as a love-letter to the book series, and accordingly, to the now largely adult readers. This is apparent in the use of gore, sex and drugs that is distastefully smattered throughout the series in the most graceless of places. In any other manner however, it seems as though the films must be aimed at pre-teens. That is not to say that pre-teens would ever find themselves enjoying the mangled plot line that is only ever propelled by incessant teen drama, nor would they appreciate the performances and dialogue, which always seem to be in a constant race with one another to be the worst aspect of the film. And certainly, nobody would find themselves scared. But left then is the question of who is this series for? It is too gratuitous to be appropriate for younger individuals, too petty to appease older generations, and too insipid overall to satisfy just about any horror film enthusiast.

I've got a lot to say about Fear Street, but only so many ways to say it. The films are bad. In their aspirations to echo the slasher films of the 80s and 90s, they manage only to mimic the the carapace; in Fear Street's efforts to emulate, it unflatteringly juxtaposes itself against films that it has not the wit, charm or soul to compete against.

To the merit of "1666," however, this was the only film in the series wherein I felt that I could finally relate to the characters and story. After nearly six amalgamative hours of "Fear Street," films, it was reliving to finally have this moment. For as the credits rolled, I exited Netflix, turned off my computer, and realized that the three weeks were up, and that there were no more "Fear Street," films to come. In this way, I felt that I too had finally cast out a great evil that had plagued me for far too long.

WTF are those accents

Every actor involved should be tried for hate crimes against the Irish. Not since Tom Cruise in Far and Away have the Irish been portrayed so badly, that said if you can get past the butchering of the accent (and you can be forgiven if you cannot and decide that hurling your TV out of a window after enduring 15 minutes of what can only be described as "animated leprechaun" is beyond unbearable) then you will find a half decent conclusion to the story. Good luck though.

A step back from part two yet better than part one (just)

Gone are the wonderful presence of Sadie Sink and Emily Rudd. Kiana Madeira is once again thrust back into the lead. She gives it a go is probably the only nice thing I can say about her acting ability, you know when someone has "it" and when someone doesn't and she most definitely doesn't so the film sufferers greatly for this. Had a more capable actress been the lead I wonder what could have been as the overall story is decent.

It's just Okay

It's just okay, not good, not bad. But Kiana acting is quite bad for me, even Benjamin Flores act way better than her. Absolutely not Leading Actress type, dissappointing. But you know? If you get bored, and wanna watch something new, this is alright, Stranger Things type, but bad version.

This is the worse part from the trilogy, the second one (1978) is the best than this and the first one.

Another Anachronistic Unbelievable Plot

If you know history, you know this is contrived. It hasn't reinvented horror, it has simply tried to reinvent history to include things that never would have happened. I guess we have to be PC or something but being asked to believe two girls would be so carelessly open about being attracted to each other in the 1600s is a lot. It was a lot when the first part tried to sell the plot that the closeted girl should come out and live proud in the 90s when people in small towns were still ostracized and sometimes killed for that. It's a lot of dispensation of disbelief. At least there isn't a whole playlist of the radio hits of the time. And I have to wonder how all of this even remotely ties in to Fear Street which hasn't played any part in these movies. All of the anachronistic plots to be more inclusive in the horror genre just kind of makes this feel sad and forced. There are so many ways to include the LGBTQ community more in horror but this was not the right way. And because the writers were so preoccupied with this idea of anachronistic inclusivity, a lot of the other elements that were pretty amazing for the horror genre got a backseat treatment. I'd have loved to have seen a lot more about the serial killers and had more character development. Oh well.

Great first half, lame second half.

I really didn't like Fear Street part 1, but I really enjoyed part 2. Part 3 starts off really well. The 17th century setting was a breath of fresh air to me, and I loved that they were finally exploring the backstory of the witch. The cast was doing a really good job and there were a lot of great scary scenes. Then the second have takes a dive. The writing begins to plummit, characters start making stupid decisions, and the suspense carried from the first act starts to sizzle out. This film probably had the weakest climax out of all three films, and since this is the last one, thats not a good thing. I enjoyed the first half, didn't like the second. But if you've been enjoying the entire trilogy so far, you'll probably like this way more than me.
