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.

Star Trek has been and will always be a cultural phenomenon. The new set of movies has brought a whole new generation of viewers into the fandom and has sparked the imaginations of those who dream of “the final frontier.” While we at Quirk are incredibly excited about the next film, Star Trek: Beyond, we must still think to the future when all of the stars of the will no longer be able to take time out of their busy schedules for a massive ensemble piece. That leaves us with the question of what takes place next. How about a new younger cast for a Next Generation film.

Hollywood executives constantly seem to be looking for the next amazing bestseller to turn into a massive blockbuster movie (this last year has seen success in everything from comic books like Deadpool and Marvel’s Civil War, to popular thrillers like Gone Girl.) Yet when it comes to reality TV, the background of carefully composed reality shows have provided plenty of narratives for novel plotlines – The Hunger Games was famously influenced by Survivor, while The Bachelor provides a wry backbone for Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible.
