With a series like Stranger Things, which places a lot of weight behind its nostalgia for 80s pop culture, any hidden references, allusions, and homages become key for audience enjoyment, especially for those who were the same age back then as the kids are in the show. Whether it be a song choice with particularly appropriate lyrics, a recognisable image meant to invoke an 80s movie or TV show, or a detail harkening back to season 1, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of all the easter eggs and references here.

Class of 1986: Six Horror & Sci-Fi Movies Released in 1986 That Deserve More Love

When it comes to horror and sci-fi movies from 1986, there are several milestone titles that always come to mind first: Aliens, The Fly, Blue Velvet, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, Manhunter, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, or even Psycho III, just to name a few. But like any great year of cinema, there are always a few underrated gems that get overshadowed along the way and should receive a little extra love. Here are six films from 1986 that I think deserve to be on every genre fan’s radar:

F/X: A movie about a special effects artist who gets mixed up in a government conspiracy, at a time when practical effects were in their heyday? Yes, please. F/X isn’t a film I hear a ton of folks talk about, but it has been on cable a lot lately, which means I’ve spent a few nights revisiting it,

Drive-In Dust Offs: Demons (1985)

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash we have very little reason to be interested in them. – Pauline Kael.

The above quote from the late, legendary American film critic Kael was most certainly not referring to Lamberto Bava’s Demons (1985), but a lot of films in our beloved genre bow to this description. Demons is great trash – it wants nothing more to assault your senses with a barrage of images and sound for 88 minutes before you even know what hit you, and does so while breathing that rarified Italian air.

But I’m sure she was referring to a film like Demons – one made with a ton of style, by a filmmaker impassioned with his chosen topic, as ridiculous as that plays on the screen. And make no mistake, Demons is ridiculous; as a matter of fact, it starts there before rapidly ascending to the sublime.

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 50-41

English language film has long been a place for some of the greatest horror film directors of all time. All the way back to Alfred Hitchcock, we have seen the genre grow and develop sub-genres, thanks to the public’s ongoing thirst for fear and the possibility of danger around every turn. But, for every Saw or Hostel or terrible remake of classic English-language horror films, there are inventive, terrifying films made somewhere else that inspire and even outdo many of our best Western world horror films. This list will count down the fifty definitive horror films with a main language that isn’t English; some may have some English-language parts in them, but they are, for the most part, foreign. Enlighten yourself. Broaden your horizons. People can get murdered and tortured in every language.

Demons & Demons 2 Blu-ray Review

Arrow Films delves once again into the treasure trove of cult genre favourites from the video shop era, bringing their restoration process to the Dario Argento-produced 1985 horror Demons and its sequel from the following year, Demons 2.

On a subway train, a student named Cheryl is offered free cinema tickets by a mysterious masked stranger. Instead of discarding them as any sane person would, she decides instead to take her friend along to the screening. The film in question is a teens-in-peril horror where one of the characters manages to scratch his face on a demonic-looking mask, echoing what happens earlier to a patron playing with that very prop in the cinema’s lobby.

The scratch appears to unleash some kind of infection, turning the audience member into green, gunk-spewing creatures. Before long, there’s carnage on and off screen as the cinema turns into a battleground between the living and undead.

Dario Argento's Demons and Demons 2 resurrected in deluxe Blu-ray and DVD with new comic book sequel Demons 3

The zombie horror classic Demons and its follow-up Demons 2 are to be resurrected in all their gruesome glory as limited edition deluxe releases.

Both films were directed by Lamberto Bava and co-written with Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, whose latest work Dracula 3D stars Thomas Kretschmann (Valkyrie, Wanted, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) as the legendary vampire and Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing.

Arrow Films announced that Blu-ray, DVD and Steelbook editions of the two Demons films will hit stores in the UK on April 30 alongside Demons 3 - an exclusive, specially-commissioned comic book by Stefan Hutchinson that finally completes the intended trilogy.

Restored from the original camera negatives by Cineteca di Bologna, each release will be packaged with both the original Anglo/Italian artwork and newly-commissioned artwork by Jeff Zornow, in a reversible, interchangeable design.

Also included will be a double-sided fold-out poster, a collector's booklet written by Calum Waddell, and

Nirvana's Nevermind Made 1991 Rock, But Was It The Greatest Year?

On September 24, Nirvana's epochal Nevermind turns 20 ... a milestone that's not only given us pause (since it's downright unfathomable to anyone who came of age during that era) but has caused us to reflect on what, in retrospect, was a pretty staggeringly great year for rock music in general.

Because, while Nevermind gets the majority of the headlines, there were no shortage of other iconic albums released that year, too ... a fact we illustrated last week, when we shone the spotlight on some of '91's greatest; everything from alt-rock tent poles like the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Pearl Jam's Ten to big-budget blockbusters like Metallica's Black album and Guns N' Roses' Use Your Illusion series and overlooked indie gems like Fugazi's Steady Diet of Nothing and Slint's Spiderland.

In a lot of ways, it seems like 1991 was the last year rock truly rocked.

'Take Me Home Tonight' Soundtrack A Solid '80s Mixtape But Curiously Missing Eddie Money

'Take Me Home Tonight' Soundtrack A Solid '80s Mixtape But Curiously Missing Eddie Money
Even though it has taken a few years to get into theaters, "Take Me Home Tonight" doesn't carry the stink of shelved film, but instead looks like a funny, foul R-rated comedy, and with the setting of the film firmly in the 1980s it naturally has the soundtrack to match. Spanning eighteen tracks, "Take Me Home Tonight" is essentially a really solid 1980s mix and it delivers in spades with tracks by Duran Duran, Mötley Crüe, Wang Chung, Dexys Midnight Runners, Men Without Hats, Kim Carnes and of course, N.W.A. who fuel the very funny red-band trailer. However, curiously missing…
