Check out the Creepy Stranger Things Concept Art

Have you binged watched Netflix's new hit series Stranger Things yet? If not, we'll advise you to not check out the concept art below, as it showcases the stranger thing that's happening to th small town of Hawkins, Indiana. 

Still here? Okay, so as you know Matt and Ross Duffer have created sci-fi romp that celebrates the best of the 1980s (the clothes, the cars, Spielberg) yet forges it's own distinct, creepy path. The show follows the mysterious disappearance of a young boy named Will (Noah Schnapp) and the town of Hawkin's noble effort to find him. The show's cast includes Winona Ryder and David Harbour, giving great performances, but it's all about the kids. Perhaps the most exuberant of all the would-be rescuers are Will's three best friends; Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin). They're helped along by Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), a strange girl with telekinetic powers and a creepy tattoo on her arm (011, hence her name). It's these four who discover that the stranger thing of the title is a faceless grosteque from a parallel dimension that's attacking their town. Because they're Dungeons & Dragons nerds, they call this thing a Demogorgon, and label it's parallel dimension the “Upside Down.”

For those of you who have seen the show, here's a treat—concept artist Nuttavut Baiphowongse has published some of his early work on Demogorgon on his Facebook page. Check out some of our favorites below.

Stranger Things is available for streaming on Netflix. Trust us, once you start, you won't be able to stop.
