Here’s everything you need to know about who Englund is and who his character will be.

Creel is a murderer who killed his entire family in the 1960s and was institutionalized for his crime.
He can be seen in the Season 4 trailer, which gives fans a glimpse of his scarred face and long white hair.
The house where his crime was committed will be featured, and Netflix is releasing a separate Creel House trailer that suggests the Upside-Down may have been involved in his family’s murder.
