    'Nothing Scares Me Anymore'

    Blood, guts, demons, or ghosts, the content doesn't seem to matter. People can't enjoy horror films the way we once did. And it's our own fault. Thanks in part to social media, we experience a near-constant stimulation of the reward-center in our brains which could easily be a leading factor... BUT the causes might even be simpler than that. More often than not we're turning to streaming sites and their original shows for our horror fix, but we're still here, still craving shivers. With over-advertising from production companies, overwhelming music, and chaotic realities, humanity at large is unable to enjoy horror these days.

    Things Don't Get Stranger Than These 'Stranger Things' Funko POP! Vinyl Figures

    When it first came out, no one could have predicted what a cultural force Netflix's Stranger Things would become. The heavy use of 80s nostalgia could only garner attention, not genuine interest. But coupled with a talented cast, strong writing, and visual flair, the show became a hit with most demographics. So it came as no surprise when Netflix began a rapid multimedia expansion of the series. Themed boardgames? Ornaments? Backpacks? All sorts of merchandise are either on the shelves now or on the way in the near future.
