Every Easter Egg and Movie Reference in ‘Stranger Things 2’

So you’ve finished Stranger Things Season 2 right? If not, you may want to go do that real quick then meet us back here. Done? Perfect! Now, did you spot all the movie references throughout the nine new episodes?

The first season of the Duffer brothers’ Netflix series was catnip for kids of the ‘80s, and anyone nostalgic for synth-heavy John Carpenter-esque scores and Spielberg classics. That season was so jam-packed with ‘80s movie references it made us wonder, were there really any movies left for the Duffers to nod to? Oh yes, you bet.

ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey collected all the visual references he could find in Stranger Things 2, including parallels to AliensE.T.GooniesJurassic Park, Star Wars, Indiana JonesThe ExorcistBack to the Future, and so much more. Our video also points out a handful of Easter eggs within the Stranger Things universe you may have missed. Check it out above, and of course spoiler alert for Season 2.

If you’re itching for more, check out our Stranger Things Season 1 video recap below with all the movie references from the first set of episodes. Don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel to catch all our future episodes. And you can watch more of ScreenCrush’s videos below!
