The Halloween season is upon us. You know the signs. Pumpkin everything, the coveted trip to Target’s seasonal section, and of course, the horror movie marathons. Horror is more popular than ever – look the long-running and massively popular anthology series American Horror Story. Look to the box office returns for It. People are eating up the horror genre like rabid zombies. As a self-proclaimed life-long horror nerd myself, I am living for it. However, as I make my hourly scan through social media, freak flags flying, inner witches let out of their summer sunshine cages, I can’t help but notice an absence of something. Channel Zero.
I did not hear about Channel Zero until three episodes into the first season, and a year later the puppets of Candle Cove (the subtitle for season one) still haunt me. While American Horror Story may have the market on the latest Hot Topic gear, Channel Zero is the underdog ready to usurp AHS’s crown. When it comes to story telling and overall horror appeal, this little six-episode SyFy show wipes the floor with the competition. The details of the first season aren’t foggy to me. I remember it clearly. For too long, AHS has favored gimmick and shock over real horror. There is a place for that, but we, as people that like good horror, need more.
Channel Zero is the answer to our unfulfilled nightmares. It is easily the scariest show on television…so why the hell aren’t you watching it?

A new season of Channel Zero, one of the best horror shows you’re probably not watching, arrives tonight to give audiences the creeps.
While American Horror Story seems to receive all the attention once it arrives with a shrieking, confounding new season, the chilling, creeptastic Channel Zero exists on the fringes. Subtle, eerie and often surprisingly emotional, it’s the type of horror show that deserves far more buzz than it receives. Now, Channel Zero season 2 is here, featuring a first episode that’s better, and creepier, than 90% of most horror movies that hit the multiplex. Does the full Channel Zero season 2 manage to maintain the excitement of the first episode? Well, let’s talk about it.

When Channel Zero first premiered in 2016, it was clear that a new age of anthology series was upon us. SYFY’s creepypasta-inspired program kicked off with Candle Cove, a tale of a haunted children’s show that drives kids to murder. Thanks to the popularity of Black Mirror and American Horror Story, the series brought new life to the horror anthology formula, making Candle Cove one of the scariest tales to hit the small-screen last year. Now, we’re just days away from the season 2 premiere, and from what we’ve seen, things are about to get a whole lot crazier. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to The No-End House.
“We want every season to be a different flavor of horror; we want every season to give the viewer a new experience,” series creator Nick Antosca explained on a conference call with select members of the press. It’s an intriguing statement, for sure, and one that rings true with No-End House. Inspired by Brian Russell’s original creepypasta tale, the new six-episode season follows Margot Sleator as she attempts to escape the horrors of an elusive pop-up home-haunt while reconciling a trauma from her past in the process.

Anthology shows like American Horror Story and True Detective are gaining ground, thanks in no small part to the success of those two series. (Well, we’ll wait to see how successful the second season of True Detective ends up being, but it is definitely a series that has people talking.)
Now Syfy is getting into the anthology horror game with a series called Channel Zero, from creators Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Friday The 13th) and Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra). The first season is born out of internet horror, basically making for a creepypasta TV series; get more details after the break. Read More »
