Stranger Things season four has *not* been for the faint-hearted, with some pretty brutal moments hitting screens throughout the series.

There have been gruelling deaths, near-death experiences and, of course, some pretty terrifying monsters - with Millie Bobby Brown herself even ending up crying over Vecna.

And it seems like she's not the only cast member taken aback by some of the more gruesome details on the show. Following season four, one Stranger Things actor has spoken out about the scene he found so "f***ing horrible" that he thought Netflix would actually cut it from the episode. (Spoiler alert: it's still in there).

Cast your mind all the way back to episode one of season four, and you'll remember that we saw the death of Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien) - which, FYI, the Duffer Brothers have since opened up about regretting.

Chrissy was joined by Eddie Munson in the scene, with Eddie actor Joseph Quinn now saying he was shocked seeing the "horrible" moment in post-production.

The cheerleader's death saw her levitating while under Vecna's curse, with her bones breaking and her eyes pushing out of her head. Sharing details with Screen Rant, Joseph revealed that he first saw the scene during post-production in an ADR session (automated dialogue replacement).

He explained, "I remember in the first session of ADR that I had, they were like, 'Should we show you the death?' and I was like, 'Yeah, sure.'"

Joseph continued, explaining how he thought the death was so brutal that it would be censored or cut by Netflix. "They showed me and I was like, 'There's no way you're gonna get away with that, Netflix aren't gonna let you do that,'" he shared. "But they did and yeah, I think it's f***ng horrible."
