October is a wonderful month! Halloween is just around the corner and with it comes a slew of new horror genre releases (and pumpkin spice everything). While there are a bunch of films to look forward to, one thing that I think just about everyone is excited about is the return of Stranger Things, one of Netflix’s most popular original series. The series returns October 27.

They’ve been drumming up the excitement (and stepping up their reference game) with the release of homage posters, trailers, action figures, and a retro 8-bit video game. As it turns out, the video game also acted as a vehicle to deliver a preview clip that unlocked upon completion of the game. Sneaky devils!

As discovered and posted on Reddit by icecreamboy201,┬áthe clip shows the boys on Halloween night as they run into none other than the man himself, Michael Myers. Well, kinda. This is really an introductory glimpse of Sadie Sink’s character Max who – up to this point – has been somewhat of a mystery.

According to Stranger Things Wiki, Max has moved from California to Hawkins and soon befriends the boys. She is described as a “tough and confident” tomboy who is “protective of her past”.

If you’re excited to see more from Max and the rest of the gang, start prepping your snacks and caffeine. You’ve got 21 days until the binge watching begins.

Check out the clip below and let us know what you think in the comments!
