“99 out of a hundred times, the missing kid is with a parent or relative. What about the other time?”
Netflix is about to take us on a trip down memory lane with a new original series that harkens back to some of the best, most suspenseful supernatural, horror, sci-fi films of the 80’s. “Stranger Things” is an eight-episode original series with Matt and Ross Duffer serving as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series. They are also executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps Entertainment banner.
Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980’s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother (Winona Ryder) opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities that unravels a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is a coming of age story for three boys that draws this quaint community into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.
This one is absolutely going to be a binge-watch session for us and we can’t WAIT until all eight, hour-long episodes come out on July 15th!
“Stranger Things” stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.
