What better way to celebrate Stranger Things, a show that's heavily-influenced by classic films from the early-'80s, is there than to depict it in 8-Bit format, the third generation of gaming started in 1983?
The last installment of CineFix's "8 Bit Cinema" (directed by David Dutton) reimagines the popular Netflix series as a classic video game. Each level depicts a major scene from the show, including Will Byers encountering and running away from the Demogorgon; Dustin, Mike, and Lucas discovering Eleven; Mike feeding and clothing the psychokinetic girl; Barb's blood-dropping moment at Steve's swimming pool; and the Eleven-Demogorgon showdown in the school classroom.
A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80's, Stranger Things is the story of a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.
Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (Wayward Pines, Hidden) serve as writer, directors and co-showrunners of the series, and are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director.
Season 2 of Netflix's original series Stranger Things will debut in 2017 and consist of 9 episodes.
