It's no surprise that Netflix's 2016 breakout series "Stranger Things" is a love letter to the 1980s, with the creators themselves admitted that they drew from Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, and John Carpenter. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in August, Matt Duffer admitted that they drew inspiration from such iconic directors and writers, and that "some of these darker sci-fi horror stuff that we were reading in the '80s were equally, if not more, influential." Matt and Ross Duffer also talked about why they chose synth music as the background in the title card of the series, explaining that "We thought it would help differentiate from Spielberg.

It was going to have a slightly different tone than a lot of his movies." "Stranger Things" Season 2 is just around the corner and viewers and fans can get to hear that ominous intro once more, when the show returns with nine new episodes. But before viewers get ready to binge watch the entire sophomore season, Netflix is inviting them to recap the first season with a newly released, 1980's Nintendo video-game inspired clip, as seen below.

Recap features nostalgic video game sounds from the 1980s

According to Rolling Stone, the new 1980s Nintendo video game-inspired recap features clips from the entire first season of the Emmy nominated show, featuring highlights like the A.V. Club meeting Eleven for the first time in the rain, Barb tragically becoming a victim of the Demogorgon, Eleven using her powers on a school bully, the A.V.

Club running away from Hawkins Lab goons, and finally, the squad defeating the Demogorgon. It also features graphics that read "Press Start," "Level Up," "Continue?" and "Game Over," in font that is truly nostalgic for kids who grew up in the 1980s. Check out the trailer below before "Stranger Things" season 2 arrives this October.

New posters promise 'It only gets stranger'

When "Stranger Things" season 2 premieres on October 27, viewers can definitely be assured that "It only gets stranger." That's of course according to new posters that were released last weekend. According to Entertainment Weekly, the premiere of the sophomore season will feature "a much larger threat," which is much in line what cast members have previously hinted at: the second season is indeed darker and scarier for the sleepy, weird town of Hawkins, Indiana. "Stranger Things" season 2 premieres on Netflix on October 27.
