If you haven’t seen the trailer with the little boy offering teeth to what only can be described as a nightmare, then you have missed one of the most Hellacious and creepy trailers this year! Syfy’s Channel Zero, Candle Cove, premieres on October 1th! I will include the trailers in this post.
What happened to Mike Painter’s twin brother back in the summer of 1988? How is his death connected to Candle Cove, a children’s show which no one seems to remember, and exists only as a whisper of a memory in Mike’s mind? And how are they connected to a mysterious child made of human teeth?
Channel Zero: Candle Cove” is based on Kris Straub’s unnerving “creepypasta” short story that gained notoriety online. It centers on one man’s obsessive recollection of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s – and his ever-growing, dreadful suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.
Mike Painter (Paul Schneider “Parks and Recreation”) returns to the hometown he left as a kid only to relive the happenings of years ago when his brother was one of five children murdered in a case that was never solved. Old memories return to the surface when one mother’s child goes missing after mentioning that she had been watching CANDLE COVE, a creepy children’s puppet show he used to watch around the time of his brother’s murder. Although others remember watching this show, they are startled by the realization that it never truly existed and they had been staring at TV static.
Independent filmmaker Craig William Macneill (“The Boy,” “Henley”) directed all six episodes of “Channel Zero: Candle Cove.” Showrunner Nick Antosca (“Hannibal,” “Teen Wolf”), a novelist and screenwriter, wrote the “Channel Zero: Candle Cove” pilot and serves as executive producer alongside Max Landis (“Chronicle,” “American Ultra”). “Channel Zero” is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP).
