When the names Matt and Ross Duffer come to mind, you may immediately recall Netflix’s latest hit series Stranger Things. Though, only a handful of folks would know that the twin brothers have been scaring crowds for nearly a decade. During their time at Dodge College in Orange, California the pair worked on a short film called Eater that spotlights a rookie cop who runs into uncanny activity throughout his night shift. The plot closely resembles Stranger Things in that it features a sinister monster, supernatural components and a rather high death count. According to i09, this is their second credit together with their first being We All Fall Down, which currently is not available.
Take a look at the short above and let us know if you spot other similarities. How does it compare to Stranger Things?
