Adding to the nostalgia fest is Winona Ryder, star of late-80s cult classics Heathers and Beetlejuice, playing the slightly unstable small-town Indiana mother of a boy mysteriously abducted on his way home from playing Dungeons & Dragons with his friends.

These throwback style series launch billboards for the series were photographed along Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood and West L.A. on July 11, plus along Melrose Avenue on July 13, 2016 (the illustrated version was created by Kyle Lambert).

Let's hope Stranger Things can scare up some real surprises and doesn't rely on too many homages or blatant rip-offs of the genre it professes to idolise.
