A new poster for Stranger Things Season 2 featuring Millie Bobby Brown's Eleven pays homage to 1984 horror film Firestarter.

The poster, released Thursday on Twitter, features Brown's hair rising up similar to how a young Drew Barrymore's hair is seen in the poster to Firestarter.

"Normal in every way but one. Will Eleven have the survive?" reads the caption which also references Firestarter, a film based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

The Firestarter tribute comes after the show previously paid homage to other classic movie posters from films such as Alien, Stand By Me, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Running Man.

Stranger Things returns to Netflix on Oct. 27. "It's 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived," reads the synopsis for Season 2.
