Everything You Need to Binge-Watch "Stranger Things"
Set in a small Indiana town in 1983, Netflix's Stranger Things is a joyride of nostalgia that weaves influences from early Spielberg to John Carpenter into a rich tapestry of throwback sci-fi cool. There's much to love. To name a few marquee items: the eerily brilliant score by band Survive, the Goonies-meets-E.T. kid-centric story beats, and Winona Ryder. We could go on like a broken Clash record. Created by the Duffer brothers, the hit serial drama has been thoroughly embraced by fans and critics alike. Whether you're watching for the first time or roping in new converts, we've put together an all-star assembly of key props to take your next viewing to a whole new level. Nailing the 1980s small-town aesthetic to a T, prop master Lynda Reiss hunted down vintage relics from flea markets, estate sales, and eBay alike. Hit pause on your life and order these accessories ASAP to throw the most authentic blast-from-the-past screening party anywhere.
