Netflix's Stranger Things 3: 74 Easter Eggs & References You May Have Missed
Writer of various sorts of fiction and, as professionally required, copy. Reader catholic, if not Roman. Designer as far as it goes. Seamster out of practice these days. Gardener presently sans garden, alackaday.
Listener to music, to friends, to crazy people. Commenter not so much, really, though I do talk, perhaps too much Writer of various sorts of fiction and, as professionally required, copy. Commenter not so much, really, though I do talk, perhaps too much, to the cats.
Smoker I know, all right, so just be quiet. Dreamer actually, I almost never recall my dreams. Tattooed and pierced person you can take that on trust. Quasi Muslim if, you know, I believed in God. Football fan no, no, no, not American football: real football, what you call soccer.
Gay man. Not just no, fuck off and die no. Books by Alex Jeffers. No trivia or quizzes yet. Billy is a proper metal fan. The remake of that film was directed by Philip Kaufman. Gumby, who Robin and Dustin argue about, is a very stretchy comical clay-mation character from the s. Perhaps unsurprisingly, El chooses the Wonder Woman issue.
The cylinders containing the mysterious green liquid open up in exactly the same way the power cells onboard the Nostromo in Alien do. How Billy runs off is very similar to American Werewolf in London. This similarity is enhanced by the prominent hair on his back. The Russian underground base is very similar to the mostly Russian baddie lairs in Bond films, including the long corridors and the cubelike electric shuttles.
There is another Heathers reference here. The green liquid is quite similar to Prometheum, which is used in the creation of Cyborg in the DC comic.
Hopper is an avid TV viewer, so this tracks. There is a mention of Red Dawn, the film about a Soviet invasion into the United States, echoing the opening of episode one. In the hospital fight scene which may or may not be a reference to Halloween II in itself , Tom and Bruce morph into a squelchy goo monster. The way that happens is almost certainly a reference to The Thing, as well as The Blob — its visceral remake even more so than the original.
‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Multiverse Reveal Is Missed Opportunity
In some of those, the floor would even drop away, leaving the poor unfortunates onboard perched precariously against its outer side. The fun fair is titled Roane County Fair. The makers probably made up a county to prevent would-be travelling fans from descending upon any particular place in Indiana. The Mind Flayer is revealed to have a mouth within a mouth, much like H. These were indeed real and popular cereals at the time; in fact, this era saw a huge number of licensed cereals hit the market, to varying success. Spotting movie posters is fun.
This time, one of the posters is for film The Stuff, a horror comedy about a gooey yoghurt-like dessert that devours its consumers. This is not a coincedence. Season 3 opens with a crowded screening of George A. Good call, Steve. The story was made into a feature film released in The martial arts-inspired outfit worn by Lucas Caleb McLaughlin for the bulk of the season might also be a nod to that movie, which the kids in Hawkins — like so many American kids in — probably saw multiple times. Sweep the leg, Lucas. Selleck would be proud.
Dustin proves that Erica Priah Ferguson is a nerd in Episode 6 by going into detail about her fandom of this popular Hasbro toy line and cartoon series.
