The Mind Flayer

In the summer of 1985 in Hawkins, the newly opened Starcourt Mall has become the focal point of the town, driving other stores out of business. After the horror of the last two years, our heroes are eager to move forward with new jobs, new friendships, and new romances. However, a mysterious radio broadcast and strange power fluctuations lead to the discovery of a new threat, while odd behavior by some of the town's residents causes a growing fear that despite having closed the portal to the Upside Down, they are all still in danger from it.
