The wicked-cool nostalgia wheel keeps on spinning with the latest homage poster for the second season of Netflix's Stranger Things.

We've already shared the clever tribute posters featuring Firestarter, Alien, and A Nightmare On Elm Street, but this time the Duffer Brothers honor the throat-throttling one-sheet for Sam Raimi's instant horror classic of 1981,The Evil Dead.

Here, Winona Ryder's Joyce is being sucked down into the murky netherworld of The Upside Down by an upward thrusting monster appendage, with the font style and composition imitating that iconic original poster.

Have a look at both below and tell us if you're digging Netflix's throwback poster ad campaign. Stranger Things Season 2 crawls back onto the small screen on October 27.
