Stranger Things Easter Eggs You May Have Missed + The One We All Missed, According To Directors

Stranger Things is the ultimate homage to 80s movies like Goonies, Firestarter and Poltergeist, and directors the Duffer Brothers aren't shy about including easy to spot nods to their favorite 80s movies in each episode.

But in case you didn't catch them all the first time around, or you're just looking for a fun way to get in the mood for season 2, check out this video by Looper showing the Easter eggs from Stranger Things season 1 you may have missed.

And in case you missed it- last year the Duffer Brothers revealed the one movie-related Easter egg that everyone missed in this very revealing interview with Esquire:

There's a scene in the second episode of the hit Netflix series Stranger Things in which Eleven is in Mike's bedroom looking at an old photograph of Will. She leans forward and points to the photo, somehow identifying the missing child. This scene, one of the few non-sci-fi or horror homages in the '80s referencing Stranger Things, is also among the only Easter Eggs in the series the Internet has missed, according to its directors the Duffer brothers.

It's a reference to the 1985 Harrison Ford movie Witness, directed by Peter Weir. In the original scene, a young Amish boy is walking through a police station when he sees the photograph of the man whom he identifies as the perpetrator of a murder investigation.
