Stranger Things' Demogorgon Looks Hilarious Just Hanging Out
You're probably familiar with Stranger Things, the hit Netflix show created by the Duffer brothers and co-written by a copy of '80s Trivial Pursuit. The first season of the show finds a bunch of lovably scrappy kids taking on an outer-dimensional monster known as the Demogorgon. If kids today would get off their damn phones for two seconds, maybe they could take out a rogue vagina-dentata-faced beast from time to time.

Without The CGI, Though ...
Since the creators clearly wanted the monster to have an '80s movie feel, but likely thought that having the kids fight a keytar-playing Emilio Estevez would look silly, the Demogorgon was created using not only CGI, but also practical effects. Meaning that in some scenes of the show, the creature from the Upside Down was some guy in a rubber suit. It's a tad less scary when you realize that this interdimensional killer actually looked like your high school English teacher.
