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.
But Stranger Things is also so jam-packed with movie references it’s impossible to catch them all. So WIRED asked the show’s creators—the Duffer Brothers—to help us with our homework. Below is a list of all of the films they’ve referenced in Stranger Things‘ first three seasons. Watch the video above to see just how they found their way into the Netflix series.
