The show is being touted as “a love letter to the ’80s.” Prior to settling on the title Stranger Things, the program was operating under there working title Montauk. Today, we have an official trailer to share with you. It’s pretty creepy and looks promising. Netflix is basically batting a thousand at the moment, so I have high expectations for this one.
