Hello, that looks amazing. Can you please send Film 1 link for PM?
UPDATED ON JULY 22
The idea for these fanedits is to recut each season of Stranger Things into full-length films like a horror franchise from the '80s. My goal is to create a set of cohesive films to be watched as a recap of each season or as a first-time viewing experience. This project is a product of passion, love and respect for the original material and it is not designed to serve as a replacement for the show.
