Stranger Things has always been a violent show considering all the things that the Hawkins kids have gone through in the past three seasons. However, Joe Quinn feels like a specific scene in Season 4 may have been too much even for a series with a growing body count. The Eddie Munson actor admitted that he thought Chrissy Cunningham's death scene wouldn't be allowed by Netflix because it was "f-cking horrible!"

In the first episode of Stranger Things Season 4, we get to meet Chrissy Cunningham, a cheerleader who appears to be troubled by terrifying visions that push her to seek drugs that could make them go away. As she meets up with school rebel Eddie Munson, they connect and he agrees to sell her something "stronger" to help with the headaches.

Although the two make it to Eddie's trailer, Chrissy is suddenly caught in a trance where Vecna attacks her in her visions, breaking her limbs as she levitates and ultimately sucking her eyeballs into her head. The helpless Eddie could only look on as this happens and promptly flees when Chrissy falls to the ground dead.

Not surprisingly, Joe Quinn himself was terrified of the sequence and told Screenrant he originally thought the scene wouldn't appear in Stranger Things Season 4.

"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'," Quinn said, adding that the sequence was too brutal for his taste.

"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. But they did and yeah, I think it's f-cking horrible," he said.

We'd have to agree with Joe Quinn that Chrissy's death was very scary since it was the first of many kills and we got to see how Vecna kills his victims. However, this is also the reason why it was necessary to show her death.

All nine episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 are now streaming on Netflix.
