Trivia

Anachronisms: There are a number of slang terms and gestures that are out of place in 1984. Some examples are the words "convo" and "ginger," the idiom "take a chill pill," the high five, and the fear of AIDS which wasn't widely known until the following year. See more »

Goofs

There are several arcade machines at the bowling center scene. One of them is Polybious, which never existed (might explain the Out Of Order sign taped to the screen). Next to it is an Atari Asteroids that had been converted to LCD flat screen and is missing it's cardboard bezel. LCD monitors came up in the early 2000s and the original Asteroids hardware requires a real vector monitor. See more »

An excellent throwback to 80's kids adventure films... with a touch of terror
2 February 2019 | by ronnievanrijswijkSee all my reviews

I sincerely had good vibes watching this film with it's 80's synthesizer soundtrack, it almost felt like i was watching an authentic retro adventure film like The Goonies mixed with Stand by Me. Oh boy, i read a few reviews which complained about a few things which i'm not going to mention. I knew it's suposed to be a horror flick and after 75 minutes i thought where's the terror, where's the madman. And then it started... Summer of 84 is just an excellent film which doesn't try to be nostalgic, it is nostalgic. I just figured out that it's directed by the geniuses behind Turbo Kid and Le Bag Man, they absolutely have what it takes to reach greatness in the film industry. If you're an child of the 80's, take it from me just buy the movie. It's worth it.
