Brilliant New “Stranger Things” Poster Pays Tribute to ‘Evil Dead’

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.

    This nostalgia thing is getting pretty old.. we get it.. its the 1980s

  • Wow that is GARBAGE photoshop.

    • It’s alright when you look at the standard of the new Leatherface posters.

        I could smash a can of paint onto a blank sheet of paper and it would be more effective than the leatherface posters.

    Although I wasn’t alive in the 80s, I kinda love 80s nostalgia. That unique style is really appealing. It’s not a childhood reminder or anything for me but so many great horror franchises started in the 80s. It must’ve been a fantastic decade for the genre.

      It was a good time. 🙂

    She doesn’t even look scared, more like raising her hand shouting “hey!”.

    but i want all these posters

  • BreeBennett

    Terribly made.

  • Chrissie-Watkins

    For anyone saying this is badly made, or badly drawn, its just so hard to explain why its true, but so appropriate. Just Google image search “80s Horror VHS” or something like that, and you will see, they all looked like this.

    I’d wish it could be great as evil dead…but it’s just boring..the whole series

  • It looks like a particularly poorly made Goosebumps cover.
