Netflix's original show 'Stranger Things' has been generating plenty of buzz since the first trailer aired last month. And now we've got a second trailer to get our teeth into.

Take a look.

The paranormal series is set in the 1980s, and evokes the beloved sci-fi and horror films of the era. Basically, it's nostalgia in excelsis for film geeks.

It tells the story of what happens when a boy vanishes without trace from a small town. At the same time, a young girl with superhuman abilities arrives. Coincidence? We think not.

The boy's friends and his mother (played by Winona Ryder) try to find him, all the while unusual and dangerous events start to unfold.

So what's going on? We'll have to find out when the series airs on July 15th – that's two weeks today. Put it in your diary. The whole series will be available at once, so you can binge-watch yourself silly.

Netflix also released the poster for the series. As you can see from the top of this story, its design is extremely 80s – think 'The Goonies' meets 'E.T.'
