|It’s like Creepypasta Christmas.|
Channel Zero is a new horror anthology series that will be premiering on October 11 on Syfy. Its first season, Candle Cove, is based on one of the most famous Creepypasta stories of all time. In the story, a group of people in an online forum discuss an unsettling children’s TV show that they can all remember watching. As they recount details from the show, they realize that its content was bordering on horrifying, and that it may not have even existed in the first place. Obviously, the TV show needs to expand on the story in order to create enough content for an entire season of episodes, but it uses the story as a jumping off point of sorts.

|Jesus, just look at it. Imagine the dental bills.|
Currently, it looks like the Tooth Child and the pirate figure will play a large role as the antagonists of the series, but there is an implication that the show itself has evil properties of its own. Who knows? Perhaps we’re in for a little cursed video action a la The Ring, with a cursed television show that makes its viewers act out the evil within. Whatever it is, our protagonist is sure to get to the bottom of it, and I can’t wait to see how he does. Featuring a stellar cast, seemingly high production values, and the tag line “We now return to your regularly scheduled nightmare," it’s safe to say that Candle Cove promises a lot of good scares and original storytelling. Hopefully, the October 11 premiere episode will deliver on this promise.
