(Stay tuned for info on who will be joining us!)
“It’s the type of outrageous ending that divides audiences and builds cult followings. Summer of ’84 is a trashy classic that will absolutely rock midnight movie houses.” (Pop Matters)
“This isn’t a STRANGER THINGS/IT knock-off, it really does do its own thing and has its own tone…and then that tone goes to some ridiculously dark places.” (Film Threat)
