It was a dark and stormy night and I couldn’t decide what to watch on television so I decided to give Stranger Things, a new Netflix original show, a try.
OMG! I’m in love. This show is a combination of every”horror” movie we all loved in the 80’s. We’re talking Poltergeist, The Goonies, Firestarter and pretty much everything else paranormal made by Spielberg and Carpenter back in the day. It even takes place in the 80’s… complete with 80’s music.
It wasn’t written by Stephen King… but it could have been… back in his heyday.
It was created by The Duffer Brothers and the cast includes Wynona Ryder, David Harbour, and several child actors who are in my opinion, outstanding.
The premise revolves around a young boy in Indiana who vanishes into thin air and a young girl who without giving anything away… seems to appear out of no where.
I’m binge watching this one right now and have only gotten about halfway through but I am already calling this my new favorite Netflix program.
I’m grateful that I decided to watch “Stranger Things” last night. And it really was a stormy night here where I live. We had recurring thunder, lightning and about 5 inches of rain. Call me crazy but I think the weather added a nice ambiance to the program for me.
