New “Stranger Things” Poster Pays Tribute to ‘Alien’

This is Will Byers. Only survivor of The Upside Down. Signing off.

We’ve been loving Netflix’s new “Stranger Things” posters the last few weeks, which have been paying homage to specific films that were huge inspirations on the first season of the series. Stand by Me, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Running Man have thus far been paid tribute to, and we’ve got another for ya today.

In this latest poster tribute, “Stranger Things” tackles Ridley Scott’s Alien, a film we were reminded of when Hopper and Joyce Byers ventured into the Upside Down towards the end of the first season. The whole landscape looked like it was ripped straight out of the 1979 sci-fi/horror classic, right down to a giant egg on the ground.

I guess you could say that in the Upside Down, no one can hear you scream…

The second season of “Stranger Things” hits Netflix on October 27.

    Seems more like a rip off to me to tap into that ever valuable nostalgia…

      Extremely good point.

      So far a great show. Would say its more of an ode than a ripoff.

    this seems like a fan made poster. why would Netflix be releasing new posters for season 1? wouldn’t they be doing that for season 2 instead? it’s not like the world isn’t fully aware of the show. but either way it’s a cool poster. it also reminds me of PROPHECY’s awesome poster….

    i love this show and i love the different 80’s films flourishes but reusing the “…NO ONE CAN YEAR YOU SCREAM” tagline from ALIEN seems lazy/unimaginative.

    • Also, as I recall, if you scream loudly or shoot guns… they can hear you.

    Am I being cynical that this is a little too on the nose? I mean I appreciate the 80’s nostalgia but I like the Stranger Things is it’s own beast. It doesn’t need to copy old posters.

      Actually, nothing about Stranger Things is its own beast.
