The Up­side Down is made of bub­ble wrap

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - LIFE -

In a sec­tion of the book that is, fit­tingly, up­side down, spe­cial ef­fects co­or­di­na­tor Caius Man re­veals that bub­ble wrap and sheet plas­tics that were melted and painted helped cre­ate the creepy vines that pop­u­late the Up­side Down. “We spent three months, closer to four, prob­a­bly, fool­ing around with every chem­i­cal and flex­i­ble stretchy thing and meltable thing we could get our hands on,” Man ex­plains in the book.

In Sea­son 2 when many of the char­ac­ters visit the tun­nels from the Up­side

A teaser re­leased this year showed Steve and a new char­ac­ter played by Maya Hawke work­ing at Hawkins’ new Star­court Mall. The book con­firms that Steve is now a high school grad­u­ate, it’s the sum­mer of 1985, and our bur­geon­ing cou­ples from Sea­son 2 (Mike and Eleven, and Max and Lu­cas) are of­fi­cial. The new sea­son will fol­low the teenagers’ rag­ing hor­mones, but it also takes in­spi­ra­tion from clas­sic body hor­ror such as Dave Cro­nen­berg’s “Shivers.”

Ross calls the sea­son the “most fun” but also the “gross­est.” The book also con­firms that the Mind Flayer mon­ster is def­i­nitely not gone.
