Just as Netflix thought of Stranger Things than to drop its new series’ retro opening credits, so too is the streaming service going all-out to preview the July 15 release. Get hooked on the mystery, as Netflix presents the first frightening eight minutes of Stranger Things, and stay tuned for the full release!

Whether you’re a Netflix subscriber or not, the first eight minutes of the new Spielberg-infused thriller are bound to pique your interest, shifting from government labs, to board games, to scary monsters. Right from the jump, this small town in 1983 has a major mystery to answer.

Hitting Netflix on July 15, Stranger Things is executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, Shawn Levy, and Dan Cohen, and stars Winona Ryder, Matthew Modine, David Harbour, Charlie Heaton, Natalia Dyer, and Millie Brown. Check out the full photos below, in addition to the first synopsis:

Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980’s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother (Winona Ryder) opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities that unravels a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80’s, Stranger Things is a coming of age story for three boys that draws this quaint community into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.

You can check out the trailer for yourself below, and enjoy all episodes on July 15.
