Trivia

There are many possible homages to the Silent Hill series of games on the show, particularly the game Silent Hill: Homecoming. In addition to the similarities of the dark "Otherworld" of Silent Hill and the "Upside-Down" (both mirroring the real world, but decrepit and filled with a haze and falling flakes like ash), there are also living portals in inanimate walls, one of which an agent "Shepherd" tears into so he may pass through, just as the character Alex Shepherd does in Homecoming. Mike's family share the same last name with Deputy Wheeler from the same game. Elle (El) is a prominent character in Silent Hill: Homecoming. An "Eleanor Gillespie" is mentioned in Stranger Things; the Gillespies are a crucially important family in the Silent Hill mythos (and Alessa Gillespie is a telekinetic little girl who spends most of her life in a hospital). The actor Finn Wolfhard bears an uncanny resemblance to Alex Shepherd's little brother, Joshua. See more »

Goofs

At the end of chapter 6 Mike and Dustin set their bikes down outside of Mikes house with Dustin's bike on the left and Mike's on the right. In the beginning of chapter 7 when they are leaving Mike's house to escape, Dustin's bike is now on the right and Mike's is on the left. See more »

Instantly hooked
15 July 2016 | by (Dundee) – See all my reviews

What can I say Netflix has done it again!

I was hooked from the first episode!

The acting in this is brilliant, especially from the younger members of the cast.

The period it is set in they have managed to get it spot on down to the littlest details.

I especially like the musical score in it, sets the mood superbly!

This series has the perfect amount of mystery, suspense, and scares to keep you wanting more!! Hope this show runs for many more episodes, it's a classic in my eyes!
