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.

Escaped research experiments, supernatural goings-on, kids on a Goonies-like adventure, what more could you ask for in a binge-worthy series (even the twinkly title logo is reminiscent of Lucasfilm's logo).

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.
