Hello, iHorror faithful. Are you watching Channel Zero on Syfy? If not, you really should be, as it’s a pretty great show.
Loosely based on various creepypasta stories found online, Channel Zero is created by Nick Antosca, and began in fall 2016 with “Candle Cove.” Featuring a horrifying children’s show that adults couldn’t see, “Candle Cove” proved to be a six-episode descent into some of the most unsettling imagery on TV today.
Channel Zero continued this past fall with season two, subtitled “No-End House”. True to its name, the titular structure is a sentient labyrinth that literally consumes the fears and memories of those unwise enough to venture inside. Personally, I found “No-End House” to be even better than “Candle Cove.”
Next, Channel Zero season three will introduce viewers to the terrors of the “Butcher’s Block.” Like past seasons, “Butcher’s Block” will consist of six episodes, and is based on the creepypasta tale “Search and Rescue Woods” by Kerry Hammond.
As first revealed by Syfy Wire, Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block will premiere on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018. This is a much quicker than usual turnaround for the series, with less than six months elapsing between the finale of “No-End House” and the debut of “Butcher’s Block.”.
The plot of “Butcher’s Block” centers on sisters Alice (Olivia Luccardi, It Follows) and Zoe (Holland Roden, Teen Wolf), who’ve just moved to a new city. They soon discover that a series of mysterious disappearances may be connected to foreboding staircases that appear to be of some type of supernatural origin.
