When Winona Ryder
's character Joyce calls the Wheeler's household looking for Will (Noah Schnapp
), her son, the scene at the Wheeler's household with the whole family present at the round kitchen table is an homage to the movie Poltergeist
(1982): the older teenager dark hair daughter, middle dark hair brother and youngest being a blond hair daughter. The parents' characters are very similar in physical appearance to Craig T. Nelson
and JoBeth Williams
characters of Poltergeist. See more

[reading from the playbook
Something is coming. Something hungry for blood. A shadow grows on the wall behind you, swallowing you in darkness. It is almost here.
What is it?
What if it's the Demogorgon? Oh, Jesus, we're so screwed if it's the Demogorgon.
It's not the Demogorgon.
An army of *troglodytes* charge into the chamber!

Wait a minute. Did you hear that? That, that sound? Boom boom Boom!
