Netflix is running riot on the original programming field of late. Through the revival of once-popular shows to the ground-hit-running success of new shows such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black the streamers are here to stay.
Eyes wide open then for the first look at their next big thing. Starring Winona Ryder and casting its net on the American Gothic/Supernatural shenanigans so popular on the box these days, Stranger Things are about to happen.
Featuring missing persons, shady governments and a smattering of the spooks this does appear to be, on paper, NetfliX-Files, and yet we keep our minds open, knowing that they have become very good at this sort of thing.
Check out the first four images from the series below, but first…
Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980’s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother (Winona Ryder) opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities that unravels a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is a coming of age story for three boys that draws this quaint community into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.
