      Inspired by the works of Stephen King, Steven Spielberg and Tim Burton, director, writer and producers Matt Duffer and twin brother Ross positioned themselves as the new masters of supernatural drama with the critically-acclaimed series "Stranger Things" (Netflix, 2016-). Born in Durham, NC in 1984, Duffer and his sibling began making films in the fourth grade with the H8 video camera their parents bought them. Their first official feature, "We All Fall Down" (2005), a short about an affluent family fleeing the Great Plague of 1666, was made while they were studying Film Production at Orange County's Chapman University, and was followed by further horrors "Eater" (2007), a tale of a police station stalked by a cannibal, "Road to Moloch" (2009), a story in which group of reconnaissance marines encounter an evil ancient spirit, and Van Helsing adaptation "Abraham's Boys" (2009). After adding to their filmography with "Vessel" (2012), a short about an otherworldly force terrorising passengers on a domestic flight, the brothers made the leap up to full-length features with "Hidden" (2015), a horror thriller starring Alexander Skarsgard in which a family are forced to hide from a dangerous outbreak in an abandoned bomb shelter. Matt and Ross then moved on to the small screen when they were hired to write several episodes of his sci-fi mystery "Wayward Pines" (Fox, 2015-). A year later, the pair were given their very own TV show, "Stranger Things" (Netflix, 2016-), an 80s-based Steven Spielberg homage about a missing boy starring Winona Ryder, which premiered to rave reviews.
