Main reasons for its occurrence

Setting. A production that knew how to mix horror, science fiction, and fantasy in the same season. And, it is that it is not necessary to emphasize that fashions are a swing. Inspired by the ’80s, the Netflix method was to play with the emotions of the adults of the time and with the teenagers of today. So much so that the adolescent public knew how to infiltrate the interest that the series caused. In addition, they knew how to adapt to the technological adaptations of that time.

The music. Nor can we ignore that, one of the most important, but perhaps most ignored points: a well-complemented soundtrack with L’Orchestra Cinematique, The Police to Madonna. A repertory, remarkably classic, but adapted to the story and the time that was developed in the plot.

The performances. Several of the actors literally grew up on set. Others further exploited their acting talents and defied their own powers, such as Millie Bobby BrownFinn Wolfhard, and Sadie Sink.

The plot and outcome. Also, the story is based on real events. The Duffer Brothers, creators of Stranger Things, came up with the project with great creativity, after learning about some details from the book Project Montauk by Preston B. Nichols. The author was the one who captured several events of combat ships that traveled in time, during warlike confrontations of World War II linked to Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

What would this event have to do with it? Apparent teleportation opened a world of possibilities to advance time, about 40 years into the future with Soviet radars, so the script is based on the Portal / Rift to enter the Upside Down. Taking into account that, to open them, superior energy fields are required, manipulated by children, something simply not to believe. In fiction everything is possible.

There, a kind of multi-universe can be seen when the one inside can know many hidden things and even know what happens outside of that reality. But those who do not enter there do not know where they are. However, many speculated that it was plagiarism, due to the lawsuit filed by filmmaker Charlie Kesser, who noticed a similarity in his short film that participated in the framework of the 2016 Hamptons International Film Festival.

Marketing. Recall that Willy crossed the portal in the first season, while his mother hoped to find him since her maternal instinct suggested that she could communicate through colorful lights and an alphabet drawn on her wall. All of this, when they discover that Willy is trapped on the alternate side. This fragment generated fascination among fans. Undoubtedly, the imagination of the Duffer brothers priced them to such an extent that, they crossed borders worldwide and, incidentally, a position in a trademark strengthens their financial success with images alluding to those referred scenes.

All three seasons are available on Netflix. The fourth installment is scheduled for 2022. The official launch date is still unknown.
