Netflix The Prom Queen’: A Terrifying Twist on Prom Night Horrors

Netflix The Prom Queen: Celebrated author R.L. Stine recently announced on Twitter that Netflix is creating a movie version of his 1992 “Fear Street” book, “The Prom Queen.” “Movie News: I can finally announce that a new ‘Fear Street’ movie is about to go into production for Netflix,” said Stine, expressing his delight. Good news! It’s based on my Fear Street novel, The Prom Queen.”

The “Fear Street” film series has four installments already, having had success with “Fear Street Part One: 1994,” “Fear Street Part Two: 1978,” and “Fear Street Part Three: 1666.” This one is the fourth. Presented through the eyes of a group of teens, the trilogy, directed by Leigh Janiak, grabbed fans when it was released on Netflix in July 2021 over a series of weeks. Interestingly, “The Prom Queen” will add new characters to the unsettling story.

Describing the plot of the book, Stine’s official website sets the stage: “A spring night…soft moonlight…five beautiful Prom Queen candidates…dancing couples at the Shadyside High prom — these should be the ingredients for romance. But stir in one brutal murder — then another, and another — and the recipe quickly turns to horror. Lizzie McVay realizes that someone is murdering the five Prom Queen candidates one by one — and that she may be next on the list! Can she stop the murderer before the dance is over — for good?”

The first three “Fear Street” films on Netflix garnered positive reviews, earning a spot on Variety’s “Best Horror Movies of 2021” list and securing critic scores of 84%, 87%, and 88% on Rotten Tomatoes for Parts 1, 2, and 3, respectively. Michael Nordine, in his review for Variety, remarked, “Taken on their own, any one of these films loosely based on R.L. Stine’s novels would be an above-average genre throwback. Together, they amount to one of the more involving horror series in recent memory.
