Fear Street Part 3 Delivers the Ultimate Slasher Crossover

CBR - Comic Book Resources 17 July, 2021 - 07:45pm

Fear Street is a unique horror property in the sense that it is composed of three separate yet connected movies, which were all released one week after the other. This is unlike other horror franchises, which usually wait at least a year for their next entry -- if not longer. Because of this, it's even more impressive that Fear Street pulled off a slasher crossover with the latest entry, Fear Street Part 3: 1666, as other horror properties do not attempt this until they have been established for years, and often, this is a crossover with another IP that's been around for some time.

Instead, Fear Street Part 3 has the Shadysiders plan to take down Sheriff Goode (Ashley Zukerman) -- the true mastermind behind the curse -- and stop the murderers who do his bidding. While Deena (Kiana Madeira) goes after Goode, Martin (Darrell Britt-Gibson), Ziggy (Gillian Jacobs) and Josh (Benjamin Flores Jr.) hide in one of the mall's stores as they try to figure out the best way to deal with the killers from a safe distance. Thankfully, they have Deena's watered down blood in their water guns.

Since Deena bled on Sarah Fier's bones, that means the slashers will be coming after her and anyone with her blood on them. Because of this, the Shadysiders spray the blood on the killers, hoping this will make them turn on each other, and it does.

The present murderers -- the Nightwing Killer (Lloyd Pitts), Skull Mask (Noah Garrett), The Milkman (Kevin Waterman) and the Shame Killer (Keil Oakley Zepernick) -- take a second before laying into each other. It is a brutal battle, and like in the other Fear Street entries, the killers do not hold back. In the end, no killer is left standing, and there is blood everywhere, as well as a few severed limbs. While these killers eventually come back to life, their temporary deaths here are still remarkable.

It's a short battle, as it is not the main focus of Fear Street Part 3's climax; however, it's cathartic, and it's a battle that feels like it belongs in a horror movie crossover. From Freddy vs. Jason to AVP: Alien vs. Predator, there have been a handful of official crossover films of this nature, often focusing on the pop culture villains fighting to the death while a B-plot also goes on. This can even be seen in the recent Godzilla vs. Kong, where the two monsters' epic battle is built up over time after their first fight, while the humans try to figure out what is happening and why.

With the aforementioned examples, these are all characters who've been around for decades, whether in their original canon or new canon. Meanwhile, the killers of Shadyside, while not the big bads of their property, have only been around for less than a month at the time of this writing, yet they get their slasher death match between each other, as opposed to going against other killers from different scary movies.

Of course, there have been other films to feature iconic killers and monsters meeting up and sometimes fighting each other, like with Van Helsing -- which featured the titular slayer, Frankenstein's Monster and Dracula -- or The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen -- which had the likes of Dorian Gray, Mr. Hyde and an Invisible Man. However, where these iconic beings have films to explore their complex dynamics with each other, they do not get a battle royale moment like the slashers of Fear Street do.

While the slashers of Fear Street are not the primary antagonists, their designs are instantly recognizable, and the threat they pose is major. The story of Sarah Fier and the curse is the heart of Fear Street, but these killers deliver a lot of bloody thrills and chills, so to see them all turn on each other in Fear Street Part 3: 1666, now streaming on Netflix, in one epic battle has the same pay off, if not more, than some of the crossover films that take years to make.
