Black Spot (2 seasons)
What is it about the wood that brings aliveness? In the French-Belgian television thriller Black Spot (known in France as Zon Blanche), a series of horrific murders attract the attention of police chief Lauren Weiss (Sullian Brahim) and a cynical new prosecutor Frank Siriani (Laurent Capelluto) in a remote village. is. Villefranche which is in the border of a large, creepy forest.
Although the villagers are upset with the closure of their beloved mill, it seems as if the forest is randomly killing people in a strange way. Is it an unusual stag animal? Or a serial killer associated with Celtic mythology? Or maybe it is just to avenge the nature’s happening human nature by abusing her with a secret toxic waste dump?
If the murders were not enough, Lauren is still trying to solve a decade-old mystery that kidnapped her when she was a child and left her in the woods to die. One of the weird things in the series is-Vibe, with bizarre characters and scary moments.
Rim of the world (film)
whereasNot a film and a TV series, it is still worth noting in this post-stranger list of things to see. The sci-fi adventure with the kids at the Summer Camp that should be fighting the aliens feels a lot like Stranger Things meets Independence Day.
Ironically, filmmaker Zac Stentz says that Demogorgon showed his teeth on Netflix long before he wrote the script. The action-packed film not only looks like it is a tribute to strangers, but also has the excitement of Attack the Block, Independence Day, Jurassic Park and The Goonies.
Chambers (1 season)
What if you got a heart transplant only to get the donor’s memories? Chambers follows the story of native American teen girl Sasha Yazzy (Sivan Eliera Rose) after she was transplanted to the heart of wealthy white teen Becky LeFevre (Lilia Reid).
Becky’s family approaches Sasha with affection and kindness, but they may have motives behind them. The series explores conspiracy theories, race issues, and even a strange self-help cult tied to the demon Lilith.
Society (1 season)
What would you do if all the adults disappeared from your city? This is exactly what dealing with adolescence in the Netflix series The Society. After a group of teenagers mysteriously find out their hometown that adults are no longer getting shots, they must find a way to survive by creating their own society. Sadly, this does not mean that everything goes smoothly as children start resorting to fascism and violence. The show feels like Stranger Things meets Lord of the Flies.
The Magician (Season 5)
The Wizard is a bit like a big Harry Potter series, complete with supernatural orientations, romance, violence, parallel universes, mythological creatures and a complex backstory-Sket Kids Book Series. The series is more developed than Harry Potter or Stranger Things (it starts at a secret university just for budding wizards), but it is full of bizarre storylines and lovable characters.
The series follows high school senior Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph), who falls in love with fictional novels about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Philory. When Quentin is called breakable at a special, secret wizard university, he realizes that Philory is a real place filled with magic and mayhem.
Quentin and his fellow classmates go on a quest to better understand the mysteries of filleri, but they soon realize that all magic has consequences.

When the billionaire dies, enchanted siblings must reunite to solve the mystery surrounding his death. In all times, they are chased by two unusual killers who are chasing the youngest siblings who have mastered time travel. There is also a pending global apocalypse to keep them busy.
Channel Zero (4 seasons)
For Stranger Key fans with another horror series, Channel Zero may be a good fit. This anthology horror series explores urban legends that first originated in online forums, video games, and social media. Think Slender Man.
Each season is a self-story. One story tries to relate a bizarre children’s television show to a series of child disappearances. Another story tells the story of a tourist attraction that can actually be haunted. Not all stories have children or teenagers as the main characters, but they all have a supernatural element or monster that can help you take back your stranger things.
Misfits (5 seasons)
If you love the flawed but persistent personality of the characters in Stranger Things, then you’ll love the wrong young superhero in the British TV show Misfits.
In Misfits, a severe storm in London gives teenagers Nathan, Kelly, Curtis, Alisha, Simon and Gary Superpower. The series redefines what it means to be a superhero, especially when you’re a mixed teen who likes to take offense.
OA (2 seasons)
Prairie also follows Johnson (Brit Marling – co-creator of the show), who returns to his family in Michigan seven years after mysteriously disappearing. He was blind before disappearing, and after he returned, he could see.
Prairie (also known as OA – Original Angel) tells her unusual story through a series of flashbacks to a group of extroverted teenagers and their teacher. We learn that he was kidnapped by a mad scientist in connection with brutal experiments and was determined to uncover the secrets of life and death.
OA has everythingMissing children who make it a good show.
Sense8 (2 seasons)
The Wachowski ‘The series is about eight seemingly random individuals who are connected through shared psychic powers. But they are all hunted by a shadowy government agency. Fortunately, the heroes can mentally interact with each other and share the ability to fight.
It is interesting how we are all connected, and if we join together we can fight as a team against the evils of the world. While the characters are all adults, the secret government agents after them remind me many of Hawkins National Laboratory from Stranger Things.
Hemlock Grove (3 seasons)
Vampires, werewalls, mutants, psychics, witches and everything in between to take center stage in Hemlock Grove.
The series (produced by Ellie Roth) is a small-town teenager girl who was brutally murdered in the fictional steel town of Hemlock Grove. The suicide investigation reveals horrifying secrets and many suspects. Of course, after the Stranger Things tropes, there is a shadowy corporation called the Godfrey Institute for Biomedical Technologies that performs experiments on both human and non-human phenomena.
A poor 17-year-old Romani boy named Peter Rumensk (Landon Libiron), who happens to be a werewolf, teamed up with the privileged Roman Godfrey (Bill Skarsgard), who may have been a vampire. The two head to their city in search of the killer. There are plenty of surprises in the series that will keep viewers guessing, and some bizarre plot twists that rejuvenate the overworked vampire-werewolf genre.
