We're heading into the start of the new fall television series premieres, and if you're a TV fan, your time is going to be pretty tied up, but if you're the last person on the planet who hasn't seen this series on NETFLIX, you're really missing out.
First of all, kudos to Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) who plays a not-so-hot looking whacked out Mom. Her son has gone missing...sort of... she can hear him in another dimension through the walls. This of course leads to shades of Jack Nicholson as she tries to get to him.
The supernatural series plays homage to a lot of cheesy horror flicks that have gone on before it. My favourite is the nod to Poltergeist. When you see the shot, you'll know what I'm talking about. (Remember I am assuming I am talking to the last person on earth.) Here's the trailer for Season Two, that will give you an idea of what we can look for in that regard:
The acting is great, particularly from the cast of kids. Special nods to Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, and Gaten Matarazzo as Justin.
Seriously fray, it's fabulous. Pick a rainy day, call in sick, make some popcorn and binge watch this series. Thank me later.
