Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand. For those who love their paranormal stories with a heavy dose of Spielbergness and 80s nostalgia, the Netflix series Stranger Things is returning with its second series in October. Once again it’s saturated in everything 80s, from the Dragon’s Lair arcade game (man I remember being excited about that) to Ghostbusters and Michael Jackson references. Oh, and plenty of dark creepiness as well.
The first trailer for Stranger Things 2 is here. It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
Stranger Things returns with all episodes available on October 27th, just in time for Halloween.
