Netflix released their new scifi-horror series Stranger Things last week, and it is hands-down a must-watch show! Thankfully, the streaming network has released the first 8 minutes of the series, which I promise is enough for you to get hooked.
Watch the first 8 minutes of Stranger Things here below.
It’s obvious to all who watch it that this series, from Matt Duffner and Ross Duffner (Wayward Pines), is an homage to Steven Spielberg and the Amblin films of the 1980s, as well as the stories of horror master Stephen King. I’m five episodes in and I already can highly recommend it. (We’ll have a full review here at GoD in the coming days.) Casting Winona Ryder as the mom of one of the lead boys was a great choice; speaking of those little boys — who sit around playing D&D — Finn Wolfhard, who is a standout as young Mike, will next be starring in the 2017 big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It.
Check out the previously released first and second trailers for the show for more previews.
Starring Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine, all 8 episodes of Stranger Things were released on Netflix on July 15, 2016 and are currently available for streaming for subscribers.
A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
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.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director. Stranger Things is a Netflix original series.
