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.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
