YOU GUYS. PLEASE SAY YOU BINGED THROUGH STRANGER THINGS AS QUICKLY AS WE DID. We started it for Winona Ryder and stayed when things started getting really, really creepy. We promise no spoilers here, but if you watched all the episodes in one fell swoop and are looking for something to fill the show void, we’ve got five more shows that are just as spooky, nostalgic and full of plot twists. See you on the other side.
IF YOU LIKE EERIE NOSTALGIA, WATCH TWIN PEAKS
We’re not saying that you should be ashamed of yourself if you watched all of Stranger Things without seeing Twin Peaks, but we’re not saying that you shouldn’t hide that fact from everybody you know and watch both seasons of the cult classic immediately. It’s got all of the stuff Stranger Things thrived on: creepy vibes, hidden secrets and a town that’s much weirder than it seems on first glance. You can stream it from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

IF YOU LIKE TRIBUTE SHOWS, WATCH AMAZING STORIES
One of the best things about Stranger Things were the homages it consistently paid to the shows that came before it. Stephen Spielberg did a similar-styled show for NBC in the ’80s that paid tribute to the sci-fi and horror genres. Watch it for your daily dose of creepy-crawlies, now on NBC. (Photo via NBC)
IF YOU LIKE POTENTIAL ALIEN MONSTERS, WATCH OUTER LIMITS
That terrifying, faceless creature that nobody seems to know what it is has been widely rumored to be an alien. If you’re a fan of all things extraterrestrial, binge through The Outer Limits — an old-school exploration of what happens when creatures from beyond land on Earth. Watch it now from Hulu and Amazon.

IF YOU LIKE TOWN DRAMAS, WATCH WAYWARD PINES
When two former FBI agents go missing, a secret service agent sets out to find them in the small Idaho town. (Sound familiar?) It’s a character-driven, creepy drama with plenty of twists, secrets and more questions than answers. You can stream it now from Hulu and Amazon. (Photo via Fox)
IF YOU LIKE CREEPY COMMUNITY SECRETS, WATCH CARNIVALE
The townspeople of Stranger Things are adept at covering things up. Just pretend the town is a traveling carnival and you’ll get the vibes of the eerie Carnivale. You can watch both seasons now from HBO and Amazon. (Photo via HBO)
