There’s nothing like watching something and suddenly thinking ‘Wait, was that a nod to…’ when you see a reference that you weren’t expecting.
Just the other night I was watching Dexter when John Lithgow’s Trinity Killer character hit a deer in the woods. Straight away I was like “Harry and the Hendersons!” (it’s also worth mentioning my friend that once asked what that film with big foot was called, “George and the Harrison’s?”).
Anyway, anyone that watched Stranger Things will have seen several nods to classic horror films and of course some parallels to Stand By Me.
Imagine my delight at seeing Stand By Me star Will Wheaton discussing it with Kevin Smith on IMDb’s look at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con.
