Netflix’s first trailer for Winona Ryder supernatural thriller ‘Stranger Things’ gives off major Spielberg vibes
One of the most highly anticipated Netflix originals of the year, new supernatural thriller series Stranger Things now has its first trailer. And it looks freakin’ awesome.
Set in Hawkins, Indiana, in the 1980s, 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 his disappearance that soon begins to unravel a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
The trailer gives off major Steven Spielberg vibes, with thoughts of E.T. and Super 8 unavoidably springing to mind from the images of Converse-wearing kids on bicycles and people in hazmat suits carrying flashlights.
The series’ poster also pays homage to the cult classics of the 80s and 90s, and we all know Winona Ryder is the veritable queen of that era and genre, which all adds up to fill our retro horror-loving hearts with excitement.
Stranger Things makes its global debut on Netflix this July 15th.
