The love for Netflix’s Stranger Things continues to flood the Internet. Most people have responded more than enthusiastically to the Duffer Brothers’ entertaining throwback to the 1980s, which will return for a second season.

Until Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Sherrif Jim Hopper (David Harbour), and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder) come back to the small screen, we can expect plenty of more fan made t-shirts, posters, and more for the hit sci-fi series in the meantime.

Below, check out the Stranger Things point-and-click video game and its VHS cover in this edition of Stranger Things bits.

If you binge watched Stranger Things this past weekend, then you spent your time wisely. The series’ creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, transported Netflix’s subscribers back to the 1980s, where kids and government conspiracies run amok. The siblings wrote and directed most of the eight episodes, which, as executive producers Shawn Levy (Real Steel) and Dan Cohen (The Spectacular Now) told us, they approached as an “eight-hour movie.”

Levy directed chapter three (“Holly, Jolly”) and four (“The Body”) of Stranger Things. When I spoke with the director and Cohen, I hadn’t seen all of season one yet, so we mainly covered their collaboration with the Duffer brothers and Netflix, the show’s references, and what to expect from the future of Stranger Things.

Below, read our interview with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.

starman remake

John Carpenter directed Starman while he was in the middle of one of the greatest runs in the history of Hollywood. Over the course of one decade, the director of Halloween spread his wings and made bonafide masterpieces like Escape From New York, The Thing, They Live, and Big Trouble in Little China. He made effective chillers like Christine, The Fog, and Prince of Darkness. And he also made a stirring, heartfelt, and achingly romantic science fiction adventure starring Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen. Starman isn’t the first film you talk about when you discuss Carpenter’s work, but it is one of his finest films.

It’s not surprising that Starman is officially getting a remake (every single movie will eventually get remade), but it’s disappointing that the director of three(!) Night at the Museum movies has landed the job.

Netflix series Montauk

Netflix is ordering a new genre series. So far the most high-profile original series from Netflix have been comedies, and dramas that edge toward thriller territory. But the company is bringing back the horror series Hemlock Grove for a third and final season, is moving into sci-fi with Sense8 from the Wachowskis, and is now buying another show with a hybrid sci-fi/supernatural bent.

Netflix has ordered eight hour-long episodes of Montauk, genre drama that sounds like it is equally influenced by ’80s Spielberg and The X-Files, with an extra-large dash of conspiracy theory. Read More »
