STRANGER THINGS Side-by-Side Comparison with 70s - 80s Movie Inspirations [Video]

Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 1 focused on many 70’s and 80’s movie inspirations and miraculously melded it all together. This video compares the TV series to movie inspirations including The Goonies, E.T., Alien, Firestarter, Poltergeist, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Shining, Stand By Me, Carrie, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Commando, and even Explorers. This video posted by Ulysse Thevenon is great for those who grew up in this era watching these movies, and it is also great to show the new generation, our children or smaller siblings. The Duffer Brothers are already planning multiple seasons of Stranger Things for Netflix, and I am so excited for Stranger Things Season 2.
