Netflix's Stranger Things: Season 1 — Featurette: 'Winona Ryder'


added: Tue, Jul 26th '16

Looking for that '80s fix? Looking to take that nostalgic trip to a time when Stephen King and Steven Spielberg ruled, where telephones were still attached to the walls, and when children rode their bicycles all around town -- and no one batted an eye if the kids were gone all day. Well, you probably can't do much better than "Stranger Things," Netflix's newest must-see show, which is like a love letter to the '80s, only written in blood.

The eight-episode series is a suspense tale about how a small Indiana town is dealing with two bizarre mysteries: the whereabouts of a missing boy and the strange arrival of a lost young girl with telekinetic powers. Just imagine a brilliant concoction made with elements from classic '80s movies like "Firestarter," "E.T.," "Stand by Me," "Goonies," and John Carpenter's "The Thing."

Still on the fence on whether you should give the series a try, well, Netflix has just released a new featurette that pays respect to the show's biggest name: Winona Ryder, who makes a fantastic career comeback as the missing boy's mother, and whose heartfelt performance is enough to warrant a look-see.

Created, written and directed by twin brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines), and executive produced by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), "Stranger Things: Season 1" is currently available for streaming; with the possibility that a season 2 -- if greenlit by Netflix -- will be coming out next year.

A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80's, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
