‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: All the Pop Culture References and Homages, Episode by Episode

‘Stranger Things’ Season 3: All the Pop Culture References and Homages, Episode by Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for Season 3 of “Stranger Things,” including the finale.]

Another season of “Stranger Things” brings another slew of opportunities to drop pop culture references by avowed cinephiles, the Duffer Brothers. Set in 1985, Season 3 includes plenty of nods to the decade, in addition to various horror and sci-fi films that influenced the more monstrous elements from the Upside Down.

Here’s an episode-by-episode breakdown of all the references and homages in the third season, beyond the Eggo waffles and Dungeons & Dragons that fans already know and love. Unless the songs have particular significance to the story, they won’t be mentioned here but are included in this separate soundtrack post.

“Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy?” “War Games” (1983) – A popular trope in movies that involve high security or nuclear weapons, the real-life two-man rule (or two-keyed lock) shows up at the beginning of the Matthew Broderick hacker movie “War Games” when two soldiers are tasked

Stranger Things Season 3 Premiere Recap: Suddenly Last Summer — Plus, [Spoiler] Is Attacked!
Warning: Only a mouth breather wouldn’t assume that the following recap would contain spoilers for the Season 3 premiere of Stranger Things. But just in case, you’ve been warned.

“The more things change, the more they stay the same” seemed to be the underlying theme of Stranger Things’ Season 3 premiere. For, although a whole lot about Hawkins was different in the summer of ’85 — the Starcourt Mall was devouring local businesses, Mike and El were joined at the lips, and Dustin had a girlfriend (or so he claimed!) — a whole lot was, for better or worse, familiar.

“More Brains!” Return Of The Living Dead Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

“Send more cops!”

Return Of The Living Dead screens this Friday and Saturday nights (July 5th and 6th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series. A Facebook invite for the screening can be found Here

Return Of The Living Dead (1984) was a spin-off of the Living Dead series that resulted from the sharing of copyright between George Romero and Night Fo The Living Dead co-writer John Russo. While Romero went to continue the narrative with Dawn Of The Dead and Day Of The Dead, both bleak social satire/horrors, Russo undertook a humorous and far more chaotic reprise of the original story. Russo wisely teamed with writer/director Dan O’ Bannon (a St. Louis native!), who pulled out all the stops for one gut-buster of an entertaining horror film. From a strip tease in a graveyard by Scream Queen Linnea Quigley to

Tony Todd Confirms Candyman Return, Teases Applause-Worthy Moments

Tony Todd Confirms Candyman Return, Teases Applause-Worthy Moments
It's official: Tony Todd will return to the franchise that made him a horror icon, as he's set to come back for the Candyman reboot. This has been one of the biggest questions on the minds of horror fans as it relates to the upcoming revamp of the classic franchise. While it certainly seems like a welcome idea to have Jordan Peele, the filmmaker behind Get Out and Us, behind just such a modern reboot, not having Todd on board would feel a bit wrong. Now, it's been confirmed that the actor will be involved.

Tony Todd originated the role of the titular Candyman in the 1992 horror classic. The actor recently appeared at the Nickel City Con in New York. During an interview at the convention, he revealed that he has indeed been contacted by Jordan Peele and he will be featured in the upcoming movie. In what capacity remains a bit unclear,

‘What / If’: The Ending Isn’t All That Matters in Season 1, But Boy Is It Grand

[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for the ending of “What / If” Season 1, streaming now on Netflix.]

What if the ending to “What / If” was bad? Not in the “so bad it’s good” way that drives the first season to juicy, melodramatic glory, but the normal kind of bad, where expectations aren’t met, disappointment ensues, and enraged fans take to the internet demanding a remake. Doubt hung over the middle of the season like the stubborn cloud casting permanent blackness over Imogen’s offices. After getting so caught up in Mike Kelley’s throwback thriller, what if all that time watching was for naught? What if the payoff couldn’t match the buildup? What if “What / If” was just another twisty bit of fun that ran out of gas at the finish?

Those who’ve made it through the 10 episodes know this not to be the case. Benefitting from an anthology structure that allowed for a fixed ending, “What / If” came to a dramatic,

Review: The National’s Multimedia Epic ‘I Am Easy to Find’

Necessity’s the mother of invention, and just as U.K. racism gave rise in the late 1970s to the activist, mixed-race Two Tone scene, so has #MeToo informed a new wave of indie-rock. For a culture that likes to fancy itself woke despite an ongoing tradition of sexism and sexual predation, it’s heartening to see not only a new generation of women and non-binary artists up front, but cis bros evidently rethinking their work and privilege in gender-mixed contexts. This year, Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers teamed up as Better Oblivion Community Center.

Tom Savini Directed an Episode of Creepshow Described as a Mix of Stand By Me, The Fog, and Jurassic Park

Horror movie icon Tom Savini recently revealed that he directed an episode of Greg Nicotero’s Creepshow horror anthology series.

During a panel at Monsterpalooza, which I attended last weekend, Savini revealed that he will direct one of the twelve episodes of Shudder’s upcoming series. The episode he helmed is based on Joe Hill’s short story, “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain”, which centers around two friends who unexpectedly find a dead plesiosaur on a beach. He said:

“I just directed an episode of the Creepshow television series. There’s 12 [stories] altogether – each show will have two episodes in it. Mine’s a combination of Stand By Me, The Fog, and Jurassic Park. It’s really something.”

I love that he likens the story to Stand By Me, The Fog, and Jurassic Park. That makes this sound like it’ll be a great episode! Here’s a full

The Curse of La Llorona Reaches Toward a Global Audience

Nick Morgulis Apr 18, 2019

We speak with the filmmakers and actors who considered it their sacred duty to do honor by La Llorona... the very real ghost.

The story of La Llorna, the weeping woman, is well-known in Mexico. Details, such as the color of her dress or the exact date of her death, might change depending on geography and teller, but the basic folklore remains the same: There once was a woman who drowned her children in a fit of grief and jealousy. Afterward she committed suicide but was damned to wander the world looking for other children. Yours, perhaps, if they were disobedient. If so, they too would breathe water. Such is The Curse of La Llorona, and such is the context of the new horror movie that is set in the ever expanding The Conjuring universe.

Last month at SXSW we were able to sit down with director

What Really Happened to Michael on Jane the Virgin? We Finally Have an Answer
Warning: giant Michael-related spoilers for Jane the Virgin below!

The end of Jane the Virgin's season four finale delivered a truly epic twist that I'm still struggling to recover from - Michael is apparently still alive and well despite seemingly dying from an aortic dissection in season three.

While I can appreciate that the moment is a genuinely surprising one in a show that is no stranger to shocking cliffhangers, the choice to revive Michael in particular filled me with equal parts excitement and dread. How could a show that had so deftly navigated the devastating grief of its central character undo all the hard work it had put in just one season earlier? But at the same time, what thrilling new adventures would Jane now have in store for her? In Wednesday night's premiere, "Chapter Eighty-Two," we begin to get an idea of where the fifth and final season of the series is heading.

Joseph Pilato Has Passed Away

While the zombie Bub might be the first character you think of when George A. Romero's Day of the Dead comes to mind, Joseph Pilato's performance in the film is an all-timer, making Captain Henry Rhodes just as memorable as his living dead counterpart, and we're sad to share the news that the actor has passed away at the age of 70.

Multiple sources, including Bloody Disgusting (via a Facebook post by Pilato's friend Marty Schiff), have reported the news of Pilato's passing. According to the Facebook post by Schiff, Pilato "passed away quietly in his sleep."

A frequent collaborator with George A. Romero, Pilato appeared in the legendary director's Dawn of the Dead, Knightriders, and Day of the Dead. It was his role as Captain Henry Rhodes in the lattermost film that cemented his place in horror immortality. His performance as the increasingly deranged and violent Captain Rhodes

Romero's 1985 zombie movie sequel Day of the Dead, delivering one of the most memorable villain performances of the era. The late actor died in his sleep at 70 years old, and further details on Pilato's passing are not yet clear. His friend Marty Schiff confirmed the news on Facebook, posting a heartfelt message along with the announcement. "It is with great sadness that I inform you that actor and old friend Joseph "Joe" Pilato passed away quietly in his sleep last night," Shiff says in the post. "Rest in Peace, Joe."
