Channel Zero
SMT heads, you know you’ve been loving Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Now, SyFy has thrown its hat into the ring of nostalgia horror with their new anthology series Channel Zero: Candle Cove, which will premiere next Tuesday, October 11 at 9/8C!
Check out the premier trailer right here:

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.

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?

The first six-episode series, which will be directed entirely by Macneill, is based on a popular “creepypasta,” or user-generated viral horror story that originated on the internet.  In an adaptation of Kris Staub’s Candle Cove, the series 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.

Starring Paul Schneider as Mike Painter: A child psychologist, Painter was a child himself when he witnessed the mysterious disappearance of his twin brother, Eddie, and four other children from their small town, Iron Hill, in 1988. Decades later, he is compelled to return to his hometown to investigate what really happened all those years ago, only to find that it – whatever it was – may be happening all over again.

Fiona Shaw as Marla Painter: Marla Painter is Mike’s mother and a widow. She is shocked when Mike returns home and is reluctant to relive the events of the long-ago disappearance of her son and the other children of Iron Hill.

Shaun Benson as Gary Yolen: Gary Yolen is the sheriff of Iron Hill and Mike’s childhood friend. The father of two is happy to see his old pal, Mike, upon his return, but he’s also terrified that the evil that plagued Iron Hill in the ’80s might be returning.
