If you and your friends are eagerly awaiting the return of Stranger Things on October 27, then here's a fun way to pass the time: Plan out your Halloween costumes inspired by the beloved show. Take it a step even further and plan to wear Stranger Things ghostbuster costumes all together. Basically, you'd be playing a group of fictional kids from a creepy town in the '80s who are playing members of the ghost-busting team from a classic '80s film. It's like an endless loop of '80s nostalgia.
If you've obsessively studied the Stranger Things Season 2 trailer on YouTube, you'll notice several references to '80s pop culture, icluding video games and, of course, homages to the film Ghostbusters. Given the kids' experiences in the first season of Stranger Things, it's no wonder they become fans of a film about taming supernatural forces. Using technology to battle monsters is kind of their dream, right?
Plus, it's always fun to remember Ghostbusters which has been making headlines since it was released, first for its $30 million production budget which made it one of the most expensive comedies made up to 1984, according to Rotten Tomatoes, and then for it's success in theaters — the film film was a major hit with audiences and it earned a domestic lifetime gross of $242,212,567, according to Box Office Mojo., paying for itself several times over. And even now, over 3 decades later, it's still culturally relevant.
