When a young boy disappears, his mother, a police chief, and his friends must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.
During the pilot when the boys are confronted by school bullies, Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) is mocked about his teeth and quickly explains that he has "Cleidocranial Dysplasia," a rare genetic disorder with which he was actually born.
During several of the nighttime searches, characters use flashlights with modern bulbs (identifiable by their blue-white color and visibly different from the yellow-orange hue of period-correct flashlights). Ironically, if they had all used modern bulbs, the error wouldn't be nearly so obvious.
The Stranger Things opening titles and fonts mimic the film grain and look of 1980's television series opening credits.
