Stranger Things Gets Buffy-Style Credits In Fan Video

Netflix’s “Stranger Things” has been lauded for its commitment to its style. Everything, from the costumes to the special effects, recapture the spirit of 1980s adventure/horror movies. This is especially true of the opening titles, which has a font taken from the cover of a vintage Stephen King novel and synths right out of a John Carpenter movie.

Considering its heavily ’80s-influenced tone, YouTuber Tony Harley decided to re-style “Stranger Things” with one of the most iconic opening sequences of the 1990s — the title sequence of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” It makes sense as both are stories about kids struggling against a strange supernatural threat and both star awesome ladies with three-part names. Millie Bobby Brown takes the place of Sarah Michelle Gellar as the lead-in character, while Winona Ryder gets the place of honor at the end of the credits — a place held by “Anthony Stewart Head as Giles” and later “Alyson Hannigan as Willow”.

So get nostalgic for the aggressive guitars of Nerf Herder, and enjoy a different take on Netflix’s latest hit while we wait for season 2!
