This was no coincidence. As soon as Will started walking towards that glowing door in Stranger Things 2, I knew exactly what scene was being recreated.
My all-time favorite film is Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and that includes its score by John Williams. Most folks are familiar with the five note motif associated with the film, but there are several other themes in the score which are just as memorable to me, if not moreso.
This piece of music introduces one of those other themes, as it accompanies the scene in which Roy Neary finally discovers what his visions mean.
