In the description from the MPAA website below, you can read why both films in the Fear Street trilogy were stamped with an R-Rating. The third film should be getting its official rating real soon.

Fear Street Part 1: 1994 – “Rated R for strong bloody violence, drug content, language and some sexual content.”
Fear Street Part 2: 1978 – “Rated R for bloody horror violence, sexual content, nudity, drug use, and language throughout.”

Author R.L. Stine commented on the ratings:

Fear Street fans are in for a treat – and some major surprises. Readers know that the book series is rated PG. But the movies are rated R. That means a lot more thrills – and a lot more terror! I have seen Leigh Janiak’s epic trilogy releasing on Netflix in July and I can tell you the scares and the SCREAMS are more than I ever expected.

In 1994, a group of teenagers discovers that the terrifying events that have haunted their town for generations may all be connected — and that they may be the next targets. Based on R.L. Stine’s best selling horror series, the trilogy follows the nightmare through Shadyside’s sinister history.
