Era l’11 ottobre 2019 quando il canale twitter che dà voce al team di sceneggiatori di Stranger Things annunciava di voler elencare, ogni venerdì, i film dei quali gli autori avevano parlato durante la settimana e che sono collegati, in un modo o nell’altro, alla quarta stagione:

Il 24 aprile è stato l’ultimo “Video Store Friday”, e per celebrare la fine di questa vera e propria maratona il canale ha pubblicato un’immagine con una lavagna sulla quale sono stati scritti, settimana dopo settimana, tutti i film: “Questo significa,” viene spiegato nel tweet, “che su questa lavagna trovate il DNA che compone la quarta stagione!”

I film sono tantissimi, per la precisione 251. Molte sono pellicole degli anni ottanta ma anche parecchi titolo più recenti, come Inside Out o Thor: Ragnarok. Ben tre i film che hanno Winona Ryder nel cast (Beetlejuice, Ragazze interrotte e Giovani, carini e disoccupati), mentre ci sono parecchi film incentrati sulle prigioni (Il miglio verde, Le ali della libertà, Io sono un evaso, La grande fuga).
