It’s not quite time for Stranger Things season 2 just yet, but with the arrival of September 1, we’re all feeling a bit spookier, so let’s revel in these eerie throwback poster homages to some of our old school favorites. They’re all-too-fitting for a series that, itself, drew so heavily on movie influences from our childhoods, and you can check the rest of them out on The Playlist.
- Hey, remember when we had a president who wasn’t an international embarrassment? What about a president who had better communication skills than unending, typo-ridden tweetstorms?

That’s all for this holiday Monday! We’ll be back with more tomorrow. What did you see out there today?
