I sort of know Grady Hendrix who wrote the source novel. The book is fun (I think I like his first book Horrorstor more), and I’ve been looking forward to this adaptation for a while, and now there’s a trailer!
Directed by Damon Thomas, who seems to be cutting his teeth in television, it’s got that now familiar 80s nostalgia feel that Stranger Things made so popular a few years ago. Amazon might be trying to chase that Stranger Things vibe, several years after it was cool, but the book was asking for a cinematic adaptation no matter what. I’m looking forward to it.
