Stranger Things Season 1 (Review)

  •  

    So once upon a time, there was this thing called the 80's. And the 80's brought you some good ole scary movies. And now it seems like the 80's are coming back in so many ways. And this show is one of them and I simply love it. Let me tell you a little about Stranger Things first.

     

     

    Stranger Things is an American science fiction horror web television series created by the Duffer Brothers. It is written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer and executive-produced by Shawn Levy. It stars an ensemble cast of Winona RyderDavid HarbourFinn WolfhardMillie Bobby BrownGaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie HeatonCara Buono, and Matthew Modine. The plot follows the disappearance of a young boy and a telekinetic girl who helps his friends in their search, while the boy's older brother and the town police chief start their own investigations.

    The show is set in 1980s Indiana and is an homage to '80s pop culture, channeling the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, Stephen King, and George Lucas, among others.

    The show was released on Netflix on July 15, 2016. It received positive reviews for its characterization, pacing, atmosphere, acting, soundtrack, directing, writing, and homages to 1980s genre films.

     

    Rated 10 - 10

     

    So I don't wanna give away too much of the story. But this show is creepy, scary and emotional. The actors and actresses are so amazing. The music is a beautiful blend of synthwave and ambiance music that just makes you wanna close your eyes sometimes. Season one is on Netflix and its only 8 episodes but so worth it and you will fall in love with 11. This is a must watch from this UGeek and you will not be disappointed at all. I promise you that it will be an experience you will never forget. Here's hoping for season two and that we see all these amazing characters again. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
