Parents need to know that Stranger Things is a sci-fi drama that centers on a missing child and a mysterious, dangerous creature. A young boy is taken by the creature, which emits grunts and growls and leaves behind pulsing webs of gray material. His terrified mother, brother, and group of friends search for him, as does law enforcement. There’s some scary stuff: A man is pulled up into the air and presumably killed by something looming in the air above him. A sympathetic character is suddenly shot and killed; blood and gore are shown briefly. A young girl is the subject of some type of experiment; we see her escape in hospital scrubs. Medical/military authorities have complicated motives, which may make young viewers fearful of trusting authority figures. Two teens meet secretly in a school bathroom to make out; there’s lots of kissing and a pretty heavy make-out scene in a bedroom, with a character removing her shirt.
