Check out these amazing 'Stranger Things' posters inspired by '80s movies

Hey everyone, Stranger Things is back soon - on the 27th October, to be precise - and that is very exciting for a large chunk of the entire world. So, to drum up some interest (not that it was at all needed), a bunch of new posters have been released that draw on the movies that originally inspired the series. 

Not much point in rambling on about them, because the good thing about posters is, they look good on their own. So here we go, isn’t it:
