Website reveals spooky correlations between ‘Stranger Things’ and 1980s
With season two of “Stranger Things” set to premiere on Halloween, Uncrate.com took a detailed look as to why the show seems so familiar.
In the five minute video, it shows how the popular series has adapted shows and movies from the 1980s to give it that extra nostalgic feel. The show is “infused with 80s horror references and updates to the classic tropes of 80s teen movies and music.”
Among the movies and shows mentioned included: “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” “The Evil Dead,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “The Thing” and “The Clash.”
Not only does the video explain how they are related, but it also shows similar scenes side by side to prove the point.
Even the opening title scene, which uses heavy synthesizers, pays homage to the 80s by honoring director and composer John Carpenter, who spent time working on films like “Halloween” and “Assault on Precinct 13.”
