Netflix
Last year's surprise hit Stranger Things wasn't just awesome because of its '80s vibe and likable characters, the show was also creepy as hell. Remember in the premiere episode when Will first catches that first glimpse of the Demogorgon on his bike? Pure nightmare fuel.

So it pleases us to tell you that the second season of the show is going to be even scarier, with a greater emphasis on horror. No wonder it's premiering on Halloween. Actor Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike on the series, revealed in a recent interview with Emmy Magazine that the new episodes are going to be "more disturbing" than what we saw in season 1. And considering that the first season featured a kid coughing up a giant, writhing slug, that's saying something.

The young actor specifically said this:

"I think this season will be a lot [darker]. A lot more horror oriented. I think people are going to like it more than the first season."
Closing quote


It should also be noted that Wolfhard knows a thing about horror. In addition to Stranger Things, he's also starring in this year's It remake, which demolished the record for most views in 24 hours when its trailer premiered in March.

As for the new Stranger Things trailer, which premiered during the Super Bowl, it does indeed have an overall scary vibe to it, as it looks like the Upside Down will have an even bigger role to play, possibly even encroaching into our own dimension. This gets hinted at in the scene where Will opens his door to look outside and sees some kind of enormous, tentacled monster in a stormy red sky. This of course could be another one of his visions, like he had at the end of season 1, but either way it's enough to make us sleep with the lights on.



Stranger Things season 2 premieres on Netflix this Halloween.
