There’s a brand new horror film to check out on Netflix, with Fear Street Part One: 1994 arriving on the platform – only, viewers think they’ve seen its locations somewhere before.
Stranger Things fans have been quick to speculate online after spotting some of the same locations used in the new movie. As it turns out, they’re onto something.
Both productions were filmed in Atlanta and East Point, Georgia – and even share some of the same filming locations.
As one Reddit user pointed out: ‘The police station in FS is Hawkins Post!’
The Hawkins Post, which is the home of the local newspaper on Stranger Things, can be found at 6981 Main Street Lithonia in Georgia.
The location played a major role in the hugely popular sci-fi series, especially after Nancy Wheeler (Natalia Dyer) and Jonathan Byers (Charlie Heaton) began working at the Post in season three.

While social media users are also convinced that Starcourt Mall from Stranger Things is also featured in Fear Street, sequences from the new film were actually shot in another mall close by.
Starcourt was filmed in the closed ‘ghost mall’ Gwinnett Place in Duluth, while the North DeKalb Mall in Georgia was renovated for filming on Fear Street.
The films certainly share locations around Georgia, though, and they’re not the only similarity the two projects share either

Maya Hawk, who is the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, stars in both projects, playing Robin in Stranger Things and Heather in Fear Street.
Fans have been focusing more on locations in Stranger Things in the run up to season four.
Plot details are currently under wraps, but recent set photos have also sparked fears of a huge death. The images show cast and crew members gathered at the cemetery, and it could spell bad news for the residents of Hawkins.
It comes after new pictures from the set ahead of season four were released – and it’s not looking good for Eleven.
The upcoming series of the Netflix drama is currently filming, with photos from set teasing an ominous fate for Millie Bobby Brown’s character.
The cast of Stranger Things also got even bigger after four recurring stars were added to season four.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Netflix for comment.
