ScreenPrism’s Stranger Things reference list continues with the slasher flicks, teen movies and music that anchor the side story between Nancy Wheeler, Jonathan Byers and Steve Harrington. It’s amazing that the show even makes sense with all these homages.

Stranger Things’ References Pt.1

Stranger Things’ References Pt.1

Stranger Things borrows heavily from three titans of ’80s film and literature: Steven Spielberg, slasher and horror flicks, and Stephen King. ScreenPrism starts its list of the Netflix series’ references and homages with ones related to Spielberg.

Stranger Things Season 2 (Trailer)

Stranger Things Season 2 (Trailer)

The Duffer Brothers’ awesome sci-fi adventure series is back for another season, and it’s clear that Will Byers and his pals aren’t done with the Upside-down quite yet. We can’t decide whether this or Ready Player One’s teaser has more ’80s pop culture references.

Funko’s latest Stranger Things merchandise are a pair of three-packs consisting of 3.75″ action figures. Pack 1 has Eleven, Lucas and Mike, while Pack 2 has Will, Dustin and the Demogorgon.

To celebrate the relaunch of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Jonah, Crow, and Tom Servo riffed on another Netflix hit. It’s weird to see them making fun of something good, but that just gives them plenty of new opportunities if they ever, god forbid, run out of bad movies.

Stranger Things 2 (Teaser)

Stranger Things 2 (Teaser)

The Super Bowl had lots of exciting moments from halftime on, but none that gave us such childlike giddiness as the first teaser spot for the second season of Stranger Things, which hits Netflix on 10/31/17. Bonus points to Eggo for their Facebook post.

Stranger Boy

Stranger Boy

(PG-13: Language) DJ Flipboitamidles mashed up C418’s remix of the Stranger Things title theme with The Weeknd and Daft Punk’s megahit Starboy, resulting in a more textured darkwave track. The lyric video is dope too.

Superpowers: A Stranger Things Musical

Superpowers: A Stranger Things Musical

She was using her powers, she’s freaking me out! Musical master melodysheep created this awesome Stranger Things tribute music video using sound bites from the wildly popular Netflix series. In related news, we’ve heard that season two has started filming.

Stranger Things: News Update

Stranger Things: News Update

Stranger Things‘ Halloween treat was a tongue-in-cheek Hawkins news report that might have aired in the middle of the show’s first season. Find out what Barb’s friends think of her, what the news anchor thinks of her, and more.

A Stranger Things Christmas

A Stranger Things Christmas

Animator Leigh Lahav’s latest clip is a hilariously dark mashup of A Charlie Brown Christmas and Stranger Things, which picks up where season one left off, as Will Byers tries to cope with reality after coming back from his time in a creepy parallel swamp universe.

Stranger Bonfires

Stranger Bonfires

(PG-13: Language) A well executed mashup track by kmlkmljkl which combines Childish Gambino’s Bonfire with S U R V I V E’s hypnotic Stranger Things opening theme. We like the title, but think Childish Things could have worked too.

Speculations on Stranger Things

(SPOILERS, PG-13: Language) YouTuber Alt Shift X takes a break from looking into Game of Thrones to share some of his and other fans’ questions and theories about Stranger Things. Head to 3:48 to skip his summary of the show’s first season.

You may have seen 2Chainz showing Eleven some love with a dope hoodie. It’s from French label ih nom uh nit’s Pop Up Series, a collection of oversized tees and hoodies featuring portraits of Netflix characters from Stranger Things and Narcos.

8 Bit Cinema: Stranger Things

8 Bit Cinema: Stranger Things

Cinefix animators The Dutton Brothers take on Netflix directors The Duffer Brothers with their latest 8-bit remake. Given the fact that Stranger Things already takes place in the 1980s, it seems completely at home as a video game of the era.

Stranger Things Live Cover

Stranger Things Live Cover

Given all of the intricacies of S U R V I V E’s original version of the Stranger Things theme song, we think that musician Wandertalk did a great job replicating the sound on his collection of retro and analog synthesizers.

Strangers Things’ Concept Art

Strangers Things’ Concept Art

(SPOILERS) Frame by Frame examines what inspired design and visual effects studio Aaron Sims Creative when it conceptualized the appearance of Stranger Things’ Demogorgon and its bizarro-Earth home, the Upside Down.

Stranger Funk

Stranger Funk

We’re torn about this unaired Emmys performance. After all, Uptown Funk was overplayed two years ago, let alone in 2016. But we just can’t resist Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown, and Gaten Matarazzo, aka Lucas, Eleven, and Dustin from Stranger Things.

Stranger Pugs

Stranger Pugs

A superfluous bit of internet fluff with Doug the Pug replacing the cast of Stranger Things. While the look on Dustin’s face is priceless, and Eleven’s pipe cleaner headgear is amusing, it’s Barb’s outfit that’s 100% spot on.

Stranger Things Greeting Card

Stranger Things Greeting Card

Only a mouthbreather would find Ladyfingers Letterpress’ greeting card uncool. The greeting card features Stranger Things’ trademark title font as well as a climactic scene from the series.

Stranger Things A Capella

Stranger Things A Capella

The Warp Zone serves up a box of defrosted Eggos, and performs another one of their instrument-free covers, this time taking on this summer’s breakout Netflix hit dressed in appropriate garb. The Matthew Modine wig is perfect, but we prefer Dustin’s other t-shirt.

Barb Returns to Stranger Things

Barb Returns to Stranger Things

(SPOILERS) Barbara clawed her way back to Hawkins to ask one question: why the heck didn’t anyone come for her? It would’ve been more appropriate for her to ask Chief Hopper, but then again it’s fun to see Eleven with her friends again.

Stranger Strings

Stranger Strings

Get to know more about the kids of Stranger Things – except Will, because of course he’s not there – in The Tonight Show‘s trivia game. The actors and host Jimmy Fallon took turns reading anecdotes, then sprayed silly string at who they thought it was about.

Creative studio Nelson Cash made a web app that lets you make your own text in the style of Stranger Things’ title design. You can download the image, tweet it, or post it on Facebook.

Making Stranger Things’ Title Sequence

Making Stranger Things’ Title Sequence

Stranger Things’ title sequence is a perfect complement to the show’s ’80s aesthetic. Vox spoke with the folks who made the sequence, Imaginary Forces – who also made the openers for Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Jessica Jones, etc. – about their project.
