Stranger Things

The Stranger Things intro theme is the quintessential example that less is more and a haunting melody can reverberate the very depths of the human soul.

The Netflix original is a love letter expertly written to Spielberg, John Carpenter and others from the 80’s. The plot matches the tone and the characters are a perfect accompaniment to drive the script home each of the eight episodes.

Subjectively, I felt as though the revelation of the demogorgon’s appearance did not translate effectively to the tense, creepy tone the Duffer Brothers achieved. The aesthetic recalled more to a licker from Resident Evil 2 than anything original.

Still, the show is a solid 8.25/10 for me.
