On Netflix’s Stranger Things

Imagine a pastiche of all the most popular horror and sci-fi films of the 1980s.

Imagine a smattering of Stephen King (circa late 70s and 80s) woven into the DNA.

Imagine a careful duplication/homage of Spielberg’s shooting style.

But imagine it done well.

That’s Stranger Things.

Most of the story is told form the perspective of children and the adults who are supposed to be looking after them.

I found pretty much all of the episodes engaging, with some genuine frightening moments and cool Easter Eggs if you’re into that sort of thing.

Give it  a try.
