If you love the films of Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter, or the books (and filmic adaptations) of Stephen King, then you might very well love Netflix’s new series, Stranger Things.
This a story of a boy who goes missing after a day of Dungeons & Dragons and the efforts of his best friends and mother to find him. It’s a story that starts out looking like it a might be supernatural thriller then quickly becomes a science fiction adventure. It hangs on a plot that’s reminiscent of E.T. The Extraterrestrial, but references The Thing, Poltergeist and other films in fresh new ways.
The new Netflix series Stranger Things premieres at midnight tonight. The series is the story a boy who goes missing and how his mother and friends try to find him.
Sounds simple enough, right? But when you know that the series was influenced by Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter and Stephen King, that takes things to a whole new level – especially after you see the first eight minutes of the premiere – which you can do by following the jump. Enjoy!
