Every Movie Referenced by ‘Stranger Things’


Stranger Things is, if anything, a montage of the best sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and 1980s action films. There are kids with special powers, trippy underworlds and monsters, and government conspiracies. If you loved watching it on VHS, it’s in Netflix’s hit show.
