The show “Stranger Things” has become quite the hit across the interests of fans of Horror, Science Fiction and comic book stuff and beginning immediately on this date, the second season will be available for streaming on the Netflix service.

Netflix Spotlights “Stranger Things” Season 2 “Homage” Posters

I guess it was about a month ago that I showcased some character posters for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. They were cool and showcased some new additions to the cast and here we are once again with a new batch of visuals. This time around, Netflix has given us posters that are done in honor of some classic Horror and Science Fiction movies of the past. I really liked these and think that you will as well. They follow the show premise and I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on my having quite the barrage of shows and contests to monitor along with a tad bit of everything else I will not be seeing this film during the early weeks of its theatrical run. I do hope to see it before its made its way to home video so lets see what happens. The advance word is that the film is quite scary and that is good by me, one really expects a film with a sinister monster clown type figure to terrify and this one should for sure. What about you readers? Will you be catching the film during the opening weekend or right after? Let me know down in the comments section below and if you should see it, please no spoilers of any kind. I hate that stuff and there is no need for it. Until next we meet.

Back in July, I shared the “Thriller” trailer for the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things”. It premiered during the Comic Con International: San Diego event and if you missed it just catch up courtesy of THIS LINK.

Anyway, so the other day a whole bunch of character posters were unveiled and since this is something that I love to share with the readership, I have included them right after the show premise. Take a gander. I’ll close up with some additional editorial thoughts.
