At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, we got a chance to talk to Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy moments after the awesome season two trailer dropped. Naturally, the first word on our lips was “Thriller”—and as Levy revealed, the iconic Michael Jackson song almost didn’t make it into the clip.

We have to agreeit’d be a great trailer no matter what, but Vincent Price’s monologue from one of the spookiest pop songs ever elevates it to truly fantastic, and makes us even more excited for season two. Stranger Things returns to Neflix October 27.
