Someone has created a terrifying Stranger Things optical illusion

If you've visited Creative Bloq before, then you probably already know that we're fans of both optical illusions and Stranger Things (or ST). So when I stumbled upon this absolutely terrifying Stranger Things-themed mind-boggler, you can imagine how excited I was. 

Over in Japan, the restaurant chain Pronto has opened a Stranger Things-themed café fully equipped with scenes from the show, props (like the Surfer Boy Pizza van) and the cherry on the cake, a chilling optical illusion of a Demogorgon (see below). The design makes it look as though a ravenous Demogorgon is about to spring onto its victim, making this illusion brilliant, yet absolutely terrifying. Feeling spooked by this brain-frazzler? Why not refresh the palette with our roundup of the best optical illusions?
