A Supercut Of 70s And 80s Movie References Found In Stranger Things

If you're a fan of all the fantastic sci-fi and other genre movies that came out in the 1980s then you will really enjoy the new Netflix series Stranger Things.

Here's the official blurb, so as not to spoil the series for you:

This thrilling Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 -- inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce's 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

If you haven't seen the show yet you may not want to watch this supercut of references to movies from the 70s and 80s found in Stranger Things because it contains spoilers.

But make sure you come back after you've watched the show!

French journalist Ulysse Thevenon edited this side-by-side comparison supercut together for our edification, and even though the references were obvious it only added to the overall vibe of the show in my opinion.

Loved the series and I saw this the other day... was disappointed that Ulysse seems unaware of Akira (Tetsuo and the numbered children, anyone?!?!)
And The Fury.
He might just be too young for the latter, but any film buff worth his/her salt should be very familiar with the former.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
