Trivia

The character Barbara (Shannon Purser) carries a strong resemblance to the Character Barbara (Patricia Tallman) from the movie Night of the Living Dead (1990) See more »

Goofs

Indiana license plates should display a single digit or double digit at the begging on the number followed by a smaller letter and then up to four numbers after. The first digit(s) identify the county. So a plate would not start with 3X. See more »

Good horror after a long time...
14 July 2016 | by (Westeros West of Westworld) – See all my reviews

Netflix's new monster mystery Stranger Things isn't the first attempt to recapture the vibe of the 80s horror/adventure films – J.J. Abrams' Super 8 comes to mind – but you've never seen anything quite like this series. The show is essentially genre-less, with numerous references and allusions to that time period weaved into a mysterious sci-fi horror tapestry that ends up being something wholly unique and utterly engrossing.. It is set in Hawkins, Indiana in 1983 and revolves around the disappearance of young Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) as his family, three misfit friends, and the town Sheriff look for answers, but instead stumble across an unexplainable and horrific chain of events. Everything has a wonderfully dark, 80's feel from the start with its synth soundtrack to the neon letters of the opening titles..This series is very much a "kids with bikes" type adventure akin to the darker moments of E.T. and The Goonies. The nerdy boys and their pop-culture references coupled with a love of D&D make them immediately endearing and lovable – which makes the danger they face that much more intense, as they're such easy characters to become emotionally invested in.

The kids in Stranger Things are just fantastic in every single role. Gaten Matarazzo as Dustin aka "Toothless" will most likely become everyone's instant favorite with his harmless look, exuberantly geeky personality and constant swearing. But all the kids are very capable in their roles and bring their own dynamic to their fellowship. Finn Wolfhard is solid as Mike, the awkward de facto leader of the group, alongside Caleb McLaughlin as the fiery, but level-headed Lucas..

Overall It is a great series,Stranger Things also has some gorgeous supernatural environments and creature designs. After working on the excellent first season of Wayward Pines, The Duffer brothers know how to build tension without giving everything away too easily, and sci-fi horror fans will love the references to 80s classics and the other-worldly monster himself.
