What could be more exciting 42 years after that Summer of '42 (1971) if your town, so typically American that it feels like a scene out of a Stephen King book, were home to a mass murderer? And what, kid, textbook conspiranoid, if you were to suspect, pre-ci-se-ly, that the culprit is your neighbour, who just happens to be the affable neighbourhood cop. Going even further, it could be the case that the directors of that gem of (more or less) nostalgic science fiction, Turbo Kid (2015), may have used said outline to make a second flick with numerous touches of Stand By Me (1986), It (2017) and "Stranger Things" (2016-). What could happen is that we get a terrifying/paranoid result. The perfect combination for a film from the eighties with bikes and slightly or totally maladjusted teenagers.
