Netflix summer hit series Stranger Things has everyone talking. Well at least those of us who have watched it(it’s so good!) Stranger Things is a chilling supernatural, sci fi, drama series created by the Duffer Brothers. It dares to reach the deeps into the brilliant minds of cinema’s Steven Spielberg and horror novalist Stephan King. I have been hooked to this series since I started watching the show last month. It reminds me so much of Super 8 or even Creepshow. The first season of Stranger Things was only eight episodes, yet the future of this show is definitely monstrous!
Stranger Things takes place, during the early 1980s in a small Indiana town. The show is full of serious nostalgia paying respect to the legends of the 1980s. A group of youths are in their friends basement, playing Dungeon’s and Dragon’s(how did they live without a PlayStation?). The game ends when Mike’s mother tells them it’s time for bed. On this night one of Mike’s friends named Will mysteriously vanishes. Will’s mother Joyce and brother Johnathan desperately go in search of Will not expecting that he was actually kidnapped by an alien like creature. Joyce gets help from the local police chief Hopper who is basically a shell of his old self. Meanwhile a girl named Eleven with telekinesis powers also shows up on the same night. She has some type of bond with the monster and has a craving for frozen Waffles.
