In a quiet town in 1980s Indiana, a boy disappears, a girl appears and a mystery is set into motion. Stranger Things, a Netflix series released on July 15, 2016, is a throwback to '80s cinema and an homage to the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter and Steven King.

The film stars four middle-American boys who don't quite fit in. They spend their weekends playing 10-hour sessions of Dungeons & Dragons in the basement and are the frequent targets of playground bullies. They live in a sleepy Indiana town, on the fringes of which lies the Department of Energy, where strange experiments are being conducted in secret. Childhood fear and insecurity soon becomes tangible when one of the boys mysteriously disappears and a strange, telepathic girl appears in his place.

The boys immediately realize that the girl has some connection to their missing friend. They agree to hide the nearly-mute girl, who is only identified by the tattoo on her arm - Eleven, shortened to El - from the authorities. Meanwhile, the boy's mother, played by Winona Ryder, searches frantically for her missing son, convinced that he is trying to reach her from the beyond through a wall of Christmas lights. The stories of the residents of the small town converge and slowly, not without casualties, the mystery is unraveled.

Stranger Things is a Drama series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on July 15, 2016. It has mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 8.8.

Stranger Things is available for streaming on the Netflix website, both individual episodes and full seasons. You can also watch Stranger Things on demand at Netflix online.
