Did You Know?
The short-story that 'Eater' was based off of was also adapted as an episode of the short-lived NBC anthology horror series 'Fear Itself' a year later (2008). Although there are several story similarities, there are some differences with the main difference being that the character of Bannerman is female in the alternate version. In the Duffers short film, he is played by Emanuel Borria, but in the 'Fear Itself' version, Bannerman is played by actress Elisabeth Moss. See more
