1994 – The Story of the Violent Shadyside Killers
Fear Street Part 1: 1994’s Shadyside is so full of murder that stories of witches and death have even infiltrated the nursery rhymes.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Fear Street Part 1: 1994, available on Netflix now.
The opening scene of Street of Fear Part 1: 1994 showed a massacre that took place at the Shadyside shopping center; However, the next morning hardly anyone is bothered by the news of the brutal killings as it is the norm for the strange city. The townspeople have become apathetic to the murders over the past 300 years because of this, even allowing their nursery rhymes to be tainted by tales of the witch and her quest for revenge.
For almost everyone in town, the witch is just a joke, but some know the truth. When things start to go off the rails for Deena and her friends, it’s Deena’s little brother Josh who explains Shadyside’s long history of murders as he has spent so much time talking about the town’s dark past online. , and it seems that none of this is a coincidence.
According to Josh, it all started in 1666 with Sarah Fier, who was hanged like a witch. However, as one rhyme explains, “Before the witch’s last breath, she found a way to cheat her death.” By cutting off her cursed hand, she kept her hold on our land. wicked slaves. ”True to the rhyme, Proud possesses people to take revenge on a city that has condemned her.
In the same year she was hanged, the first person – Pastor Cyrus Miller – came under her influence, killing a number of children and gouging their eyes out. After that, the next documented massacre took place in 1904, when a con artist killed a group of girls. Not long after, in 1922, a young boy named Billy Barker smashed the heads of his family members with a baseball bat while they were sleeping.
In 1935, the witch struck again, and this time she was the slayer Humpty Dumpty. Then in 1950, milkman Harry Rooker killed seven housewives with a switchblade knife. Later, in 1965, Ruby Lane killed her boyfriend and friends with a razor, then finished the job by slitting her wrists. Finally, the last murder before 1994 took place in 1978 at Camp Nightwing, where a masked man murdered twelve children.
As Josh connects the dots for them, the group sees that everything aligns perfectly. For example, they saw the current killer, Ryan Torres, although he was shot, and then they encountered the supposedly dead Ruby Lane with her razor. Despite their disbelief, the only answer to everything is that evil rhymes and fantasy stories must be true. Therefore, the witch must be real and she is responsible for transforming Shadyside into such a murderous city.
