‘Stranger Things’ Goes ‘Friday the 13th’ With New Retro Trailer Tease

Stranger Things 2 Trailer Friday the 13th

Ah, the perfect confluence of Stranger Things, ‘80s nostalgia and an actual Friday the 13th. Two weeks out from Season 2, Stranger Things promises a final trailer with a wonderfully retro new Friday the 13th-style promo.
