‘Stranger Things’ season 4 packs into gore

On Friday, Netflix went down seven episodes of the fourth season of his successful series Strange things. (The final two episodes arrive on July 1.)

As expected, the series climbed to the top from the streamer’s top 10 list and also powered Kate Bush’s 1985 song “up that hill to number 1 on iTunes; in case you haven’t seen all the new episodes yet, the song factors heavily into a character’s story.

But beyond the praise for the new season and the excitement of reuniting with our favorite characters, who are now scattered throughout Indiana and California, there is debate about an important aspect from season 4: the blood.

Strange things I was never a show for the faint of heart. In the first season, people disappear into an alternate dimension called the Upside Down, where faceless monsters roam. multiple characters die through telekinesis. However, the program, starring several teenagers, has I always felt familiar.

That is mainly due to his big dose of 80’s nostalgia Y tributes to TV shows and movies of that decade, as Eastern Time., Day of the DeadY Fast Times at Ridgemont High. This season, however, it feels different. There is a darker tone, which is usual in a series where young characters get older. But not everyone is a fan. (The following contains some spoilers for season 4.)

Hello friends just a Strange things TW for blood, gore and eating disorders in ep1,” a Twitter user wrote. Others tweeted about no desire to continue watching the show due to the level of gore. Some horror fans felt the opposite: They applauded the gore.

The first episode of season 4 includes a content warningsince it premiered days after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas: “…viewers may find the opening scene of episode 1 harrowing. We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable violence, and our hearts go out to all the families grieving a loved one.”

It’s not just the opening scene of the first episode that’s gory – the season is full of things like broken bones, eyeballs pushed outmonsters eating peopleand a teenage being hit in the face with a skateboard.

The last season of Strange things feel more like an adult show while maintaining its campy ’80s vibes. The series is fun and quick to watch (i finished it in one day) and has a solid arc for Season 4’s main villain, Vecna.

If you are a person who shudders at the horror of the body on screen, though. watch carefully this season. The last two episodes, one of which is more than two hours longThey are likely to get even bloodier as a battle with Vecna ​​is imminent.

But the subtitles can’t get much grosser than “moist stretched meat,” Can they?
