Netflix's newest television series Stranger Things, created and directed by the Duffer brothers (of Hidden), is an homage to the kind of smalltown sci-fi horror pioneered in the 80s by Stephen King and Amblin-era Steven Spielberg with hints of The X-Files and Freaks and Geeks. It's expertly-plotted, has a great cast, meticulous direction, sustained eerie atmosphere, a wonderfully nostalgic opening title sequence, AND... lots of movie references!
These are the ones I picked up on after watching all episodes for the first time. If you saw more, add them in the comments.
UPDATE: Binge! I've also started including season 2 references.
