Trivia

Winona Ryder portrays a mother whose child has gone missing. In real life, Ryder dedicated the film Little Women (1994) to Polly Hannah Klaas, a young girl from her hometown of Petaluma, California, who went missing and was later revealed to have been kidnapped and brutally murdered. She offered a $200,000 reward for anyone with information on the subject, and as of 2016 she still remains a strong supporter of the Polly Klaas Foundation for Prevention of child abduction, and aid in the search.

Goofs

In the early 1980s, the lights on the kids' bicycles would have been powered by a tire-driven dynamo. The dynamo's output and thus the light level would have varied according to the bike's speed, becoming totally dark when the bike was stopped.

Additionally, as with the "flashlights" anachronism, the headlights would have been yellowish, not the blue-white of a modern LED headlamp. See more »

User Reviews

 
Season 1 was great!
4 September 2020 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

Stranger Things absolutely lives up to all the hype! This worldwide phenomenon has been one of the most talked about shows of the last few years and for good reason...it's terrific! Not all but most of the negative reviews are coming from either bots from competing streaming services, that rate everything that Netflix does bad, or from people who go out of their way to rate all the shows people like negatively. Some people just don't like it, which is fine, but there are people who are just miserable and like to troll. 99% of their reviews are negative. Who goes out of there way to comment on something they don't like? Personally, I only review shows I like. Obviously, season 1 was the best but the others are not far off. All are absolutely worth watching and I can't wait for the new season!
