Stranger Things on Netflix

All eight episodes of Stranger Things, Netflix’s homage to 80s supernatural-lite films, go online today.  And who better than Winona Ryder, the indie crowd’s ultimate movie dream girl in the 80s, to star in a movie set in that decade?  Bonus:  Matthew Modine, although he was in no way the indie crowd’s ultimate movie dream boy in the 80s, shows up as a bad guy government agent.

It’s obviously impossible to watch the trailer without being reminded of E.T. and Goonies, but Stranger Things is considerably darker.

The early reviews have been excellent.  I know how I’ll be spending part of my weekend!
