When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.
The opening credits are not only reminiscent of Stephen King's work in terms of font but the manner in which the title sequence plays out is also extremely similar to The Terminator, released in 1984.
The US flag patches worn by the police officers are incorrect. On the patches, the field of stars has too many stripes to the right of it and not enough stripes underneath. On the actual flag, the field "sits" on the fourth white stripe from the top. On the patches, it "sits" on the red stripe below it, the fifth red stripe.
CORRECTION: It's a myth that it's a "Federal offence" to impersonate a member of law enforcement by wearing an actual uniform in a movie or TV show. (It is a state offense to impersonate a police officer.) Accurate uniforms are allowed, but most production companies either don't bother to get them right, or don't work with the local LE agency and get their permission, and thus come up with something close but not quite right.
The Stranger Things opening titles and fonts mimic the film grain and look of 1980's television series opening credits.
