Stranger Things: Watch BTS Look at Creation of the ‘Mind Lair’ Scene

Stranger Things 4 comes back later this week, and Netflix has been hard at work trying to get everyone excited for a return to Hawkins. Just in, we have a behind-the-scenes look with director Shawn Levy and actress Sadie Sink on one of the most iconic scenes from Season 4 Vol. 1—Max’s escape from the ‘Mind Lair.’

Watch this:

In Stranger Things Season 4, Sadie Sink (Max) is almost killed by Vecna but makes a daring escape. Sadie Sink and Shawn Levy (Director, Executive Producer) share what it was like to film one of the show’s most iconic scenes, and the visual effects that went into creating Vecna’s gruesome mind lair.

Though we don’t know the identity of Vecna until the very end of Vol. 1, it’s said that actor Jamie Campbell Bower had been behind the prosthetics this whole time. We also see how much of the actual set is practical—albeit, they did tweak a lot of elements with CG, like the pulsating vines as well as the bodies of Vecna’s victims.

While we were expecting another batch of episodes for Vol. 2 of Season 4, it looks like we’re only going to be getting two episodes titled Papa and Piggyback. Despite only being two episodes, the runtimes have been greatly extended to more than an hour—as if Netflix dropped two movies at once.

Hopefully Vol. 2 will be able to wrap Season 4 up nicely as the Duffer Brothers gear up for the final season.

Stranger Things 4 Vol. 2 returns to Netflix on July 1.
