If you’re a fan of older science fiction/adventure films such as E.T. and The Goonies with a horror twist of Stephen King thrown in and you’re not yet watching Netflix’s series Stranger Things, then you probably should be. The show focuses on a early ’80s era “mad science in suburbia gone wrong” theme that really drives home the nostalgia. I’m only two episodes in and I’m hooked with the suspense and questions that float around the small town it’s centered in.

One of the great things about the series is it’s original music. Each episode is peppered with classic tunes from the ’70s and ’80s that you’d typically hear in that decade. However the show’s score, purported to be composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the band S U R V I V E, drips of eerie synths and creepy vibes not unlike a John Carpenter score. The show’s opener alone has flavors of Halloween about it. Now, it sounds like those of us hooked on said music will be able to purchase it via soundtrack.

Great news for series fans and those of us who love a good ’80s horror cinema score. We’ll keep you posted on when a release date is announced and where to find the Stranger Things soundtrack when it goes live.

What do you think of Stranger Things’ soundtrack? Does it fall in line with other scores of the era it represents? What are your favorite scores that you think helped inspire it? Let us know!
