The Upside Down

There’s Hawkins, Indiana, and then there’s a very dark, twisted, disturbing version of that town.

Hawkins Lab.

Hovering quietly in the small town of Hawkins is the government facility, Hawkins Laboratory. The townspeople assume it has something to do with the Cold War - being the early 80s.

No one is quite clear on what they do there. It’s revealed that the testing there is not overall aboveboard, nor is it within the parameters of what is known or considered acceptable or possible.

- Shawn Levy

Overseeing the testing is Dr. Brenner, played by Matthew Modine who has good intentions but whose actions don’t reflect that. The testing reveals supernatural abilities with Eleven.

That lab is evil.

According to the Duffers, much of the conflict in Hawkins is not about monsters and the supernatural, but about people being terrible to each other and how they react to that. The boys as well as the teens encounter the dark side of Hawkins first hand when they discover the lab.

Something sinister is happening in this lab, and it’s been unleashed on Hawkins.

It’s scary that there’s evil surrounding us, and you can’t see it, but it’s right there.

- Ross Duffer

It’s familiar, but totally different. And that can be scary and exciting.

- Natalia Dyer

Before it was known as the Upside Down, it was the Nether.

David Harbour likens "Stranger Things’" Nether to a film negative.

The town exists in a negative relief. Things aren’t alive there except for there are these predators. But there’s something beyond the monster and the Nether. There are deeper fears.

Funfact: The kids started calling the Nether, the Upside Down. And the name stuck; making the final edit (but not the Production Notes given to media outlets).

At the gate, lies the Rift.

And the gate to this Nether - this underbelly of evil - is the Rift. Matt explains,

It was a tear in time or space that leads to this alternate dimension. It’s essentially a gate into Hell and eventually our kids realize they need to go there and open the gate to find Will and retrieve him.

For our kids, it's like a real life 'Dungeons & Dragons' adventure. There is a gate to this evil dungeon. And and it's in this dungeon where their friend is trapped. Only unlike the game, the stakes are very real and potentially deadly.

And this is how they did it.

Finn explains the way the kids finally understand the Nether.

The boys don’t get it at first until Eleven flips the 'Dungeons and Dragons' board upside down. And then we finally get it! The upside down means a different dimension. And the Demagorgon is the monster. And that’s when we go off on our big adventure.

No time sit, there's more ahead.

Facts, just the facts. Actually, facts plus a lot more pictures coming right up. Take a break, grab a beverage, then go to part 2.

Just one more thing...

We source series' screengrabs ourselves. And our on-set production stills come directly from the distributor. The result, then, is high-quality photos for you. If you're going to use them on your website, please give credit where credit is due.

Did you know...

Clicking a photo loads it in a gallery so you don't have to scroll. But doing that means you'll miss out on my witty and (sometimes) factual commentary. Oh, and if you're on a mobile device, you can swipe-up through the pictures without tapping. And if you want a closer look, tap the photo and zoom in. Easy peasy.

How to download...

If you're on a desktop or laptop, right-click on the image or picture you want to save. Then click 'Open image in new tab'. Then, go to that tab. Right-click on the image, and save it to your computer. If you're on a mobile device, lightly press down on the image and wait. In 1 or 2 seconds your device will give you several options from which to choose. Tap 'Save Image' and follow the instructions given by your device.

Before I forget...

This is a small, but dedicated site which explores binge-worthy TV and movies. I don't stream, but I do offer loads of information, reviews, pictures and scripts. Best of all, it's free! I try to add more and more each week. Thanks for being a part of our community of binge-watchers.
