If you loved Stranger Things…

You’ve binged your way through Stranger Things much quicker than you planned and now you’ve got a heart-thumping hole in your life. Here’s a list of Netflix recommendations to keep you on the edge of your seat


If you loved Stranger Things…

A love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.

If it’s suspense you are looking for, why not try these two dark and gripping dramas:

The Returned – A supernatural drama that follows the residents of a French town, turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear. While they try to resume their lives strange phenomena occur: recurring power outages; a mysterious lowering of the local reservoir’s water level, revealing the presence of dead animals and a church steeple; and the appearance of strange marks on the bodies of the living and the dead.

The Killing – The disappearance of a young Seattle girl sets in motion this moody crime series focussing on a conflicted detective working the case. The first season covers the first two weeks of the investigation and has three main storylines – the murder investigation, the attempts of her family to deal with their grief, and the fluctuating electoral fortunes of a political campaign that becomes embroiled in the case.

If it’s the 80s Sci-fi nostalgia you crave, re-watch a golden oldie:

Predator – The 1987 classic follows a tough army commando team on a rescue mission to South America where they encounter a strange jungle predator, a space alien who mercilessly devours his victims.

For a modern day sci-fi with heart, check out:

Sense 8 – A science fiction drama that follows eight strangers from different parts of the world who suddenly become mentally and emotionally linked. The eight ‘sensates’ find themselves flung into each other’s lives through a single consciousness and forced to tackle everyday challenges such as love, loss and identify.

And if you love the adrenaline of a good scare, watch:

Scream – The TV series sequel to the classic horror franchise has all the scare of the great slasher films. The series is situated in the fictional town of Lakewood, where a string of murders take place. At the centre of these murders is Emma Duval, a teenage girl who is somehow tied to the town’s dark past.
