Set 16 years before the events of Part 1, the second instalment in the Fear Street trilogy takes us back to 1978 for a summer of fun at Camp Nightwing.
The camp is divided as the campers and counsellors from the prosperous town of Sunnyvale look down on their counterparts from the downtrodden Shadyside.
However, when the horrors of the towns’ shared past emerge and several campers are possessed by a murderous presence, the Shadyside and Sunnyvale residents must put their differences aside in a grim fight for survival.
