Supernatural thriller 'Stranger Things' hit Netflix on Friday, but if you haven't watched it yet, you can now watch the first eight minutes for free online.

Handy if you're yet to get around to binge-watching it. Or you just want to see what all the fuss is about without shelling out for Netflix.

The series tells of a boy's disappearance from a small town in America. But this is no ordinary disappearance.

Other factors are at work, including government agents and supernatural forces. But what's the truth behind it? You'll have to watch it to find out.

Netflix describes the show as a "love letter to supernatural classics of the '80s".

As well as being set in that decade, the series contains many elements of the Spielberg-style supernatural thrillers of the time, including a kickass soundtrack.

It stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour and Finn Wolfhard.
