October has flown by quickly. The Daily Horror Film Fest is almost over, and we are already at our last installment of our And You Films mashup horror parodies. We’ve seen mashups of It and Pitch Perfect and the Predator/Alien/Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and now, in honor of Stranger Things season two debuting on Netflix tomorrow, we have Ranger Things. As with the others in the series, it was directed by Brendan Jackson Rogers and co-written by Rogers and Will Phillip.
As you may have guessed, this one is a mashup of Stranger Things and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Which means ridiculous battles with cheesy monsters (not the Domogorgon) and a cameo from Barb. And waffles. “We are huge fans of the Stranger Things series and thought it would be a lot of fun to recreate Power Rangers-style fights in that universe,” says Rogers. “Also, it was a great excuse to bring the character of Barb back.”
