It has truly been a super(natural) summer thanks, in large part, to My Best Friend’s Exorcism and Stranger Things. These two pop culture sweethearts are truly a match made in hell. They have given us an eerily similar glimpse at the world of demons and aliens with an ace 80’s twist. They both are heartwarming stories about friendship that scared the living daylights out of us. Maybe most importantly though - they both would have killer soundtracks. Thankfully, the folks over at Stranger Things have promised us a soundtrack is lurking right beyond the next corner, but what we MBFE + ST geeks are really waiting for is the perfect 80’s mixtape that combines both.
Wait no more.
Tons of Spoilers Ahead.
