When the science fiction-horror series, Stranger Things, first hit Netflix last year, people weren’t sure what to expect. But within a few weeks of its release, everybody was talking about the show – with many people quickly deeming it a favorite.
While the acting and the plot are both phenomenal, the Stranger Things’ cinematography and realistic depiction of the 80s have also gotten a lot of attention.
The show also draws heavily on the influences of classic horror and science fiction movies such as Jaws and Alien.
With that being said, what better way to gear up for season 2 of Stranger Things than to celebrate with some movie posters that were inspired by classic 70s and 80s horror films? If you’re already a fan of the show, you’ll love it even more after these.
The 1979 film, Alien, starred Sigourney Weaver and was directed by the legendary Ridley Scott. Although the reviews were initially mixed, it eventually became a huge commercial success. The film became so popular that it spawned several sequels including Aliens and Alien 3.
