Netflix's new Stranger Things promo features Singapore’s Yishun MRT Station in an eerie light, cementing Yishun’s strangeness.

The video clip has the caption, “is Yishun cursed, simply unlucky, or struck by something stranger? We’ll leave that to you to decide…”

Yishun has developed a reputation for the strange, with cat killers, attempted murder and even an attack at a shopping centre. These events in Yishun stand as au contraire of Singapore’s status as a safe city.
