Syfy has an upcoming TV series that has most definitely peaked our interest. Channel Zero: Candle Cove is their latest foray into the horror genre and it calling the teaser trailers “creepy” would be a bit of an understatement.
From the official site:
Based on a popular “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the Internet), Candle Cove centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.
Syfy has often dropped the ball for me when it comes to TV horror shows; Helix had such incredible potential but was ultimately disappointing in execution and Z-Nation was laughable at best. On the other hand, titles like Battlestar: Galactica and The Magicians were right on the money, so I suppose this is going to be one of those “hold thumbs and hope for the best” scenarios.
While we wait for the shows premier on September 27th, sink your teeth into some of the teaser trailers below. If you wish to know more about the backstory of this series, there is a pretty good summary here.
