IT’S SO GOOD!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!! Warnings before going in: it is an homage to 80s scifi/fantasy films (E.T., Goonies, Poltergeist, Labyrinth, etc.), so there are some relatively scary moments. There is a little blood (Honestly, if you were able to handle OITNB, you’re able to handle this show). The acting is sooo top-notch. Winona Ryder is amazing. THE KIDS ARE ALL AMAZING. And the cinematography is BRILLIANT. It’s only 8 episodes, and it was just released on Netflix on Friday. I’ve never shown my parents a show where my mom didn’t get up the whole time. I’m… obsessed. I’m showing it to all my friends right now.
His credits include Stand By Me, The Goonies, Gremlins, The Lost Boys, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, The ‘Burbs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990), Bordello of Blood, Rock 'n’ Roll High School Forever, and Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV.
I spent a whole day watching this incredible 8 episode mini-series on Netflix. This series had me screaming at the second episode and crying in the third. It was like eating Eggo waffles & chocolate pudding for the first time, I couldn’t stop and I wanted more. It was like watching The Poltergeist, The Goonies, Super 8, ET, and Insidious ALL AT ONCE! Don’t even get me started on the soundtrack! If your craving a good old 80′s style hella brill show take a red, because this one is worth the 8 hours!
