The ultimate experience in nostalgic terror.

Each and every Thursday on the road to Season 2, Netflix has been releasing fun “Stranger Things” posters that pay tribute to the films that served as Season 1 inspirations. So far, the art tributes have included Stand by Me, A Nightmare on Elm StreetRunning ManAlien and, most recently, Firestarter.

This latest one is easily the coolest yet, inspired by the iconic original poster for Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. The image of a young woman being pulled into the ground is one of the most instantly recognizable to horror fans, and the “Stranger Things” version sees Joyce Byers being pulled into the Upside Down by the Demogorgon.

Yes, Winona Ryder on an Evil Dead poster parody. Gotta love it!

The second season of “Stranger Things” hits Netflix on October 27.
