Remember when a good Halloween display was just comprised a few tombstones in your yard and maybe a scary plastic monster of some kind? Well, that is so last century. These days, homeowners do things like make elaborate light displays for spooky season, or have giant skeletons on the lawn, or a huge inflatable Michael Myers. And now, actual drone shows too, many of which are theme park worthy. Thanks to the folks at Laughing Squid, we’ve once again encountered the amazing work of Tom BetGeorge, whose Halloween drone show this year drew inspiration from season 4 of Stranger Things.
And yes, that means Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” is our show’s soundtrack. (This one’s for you Eddie!) After the Hawkins portion of the show, the second half is a classic Ghostbusters tribute. You can watch the full video down below:
Not only do we get a Demogorgon, just like the one poor Hopper and his Russian buddies had to battle, but we also see a giant Mindflayer hovering above the house. Next, there’s the giant grandfather clock from Vecna’s childhood home, which later exists inside the Upside Down. And then we get what looks like Max Mayfield, hovering in the sky as Vecna infects her mind. It’s all mind-blowingly well done.
For the Ghostbusters portion of the show, as Ray Parker Jr.’s iconic theme song plays we see the iconic Ghostbusters logo hover above the house. Next, Slimer himself arrives, sucked into one of Egon Spengler’s proton packs. But the coolest thing in this show is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. You can’t do a Ghostbusters tribute without him in some form, right? Last year, this same creator did a Halloween show centered on The Matrix. But we think this Stranger Things and Ghostbusters Halloween double whammy easily outdoes that one. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next year .
