Syfy Releases Chilling Sneak Peek for “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”

Syfy has released a chilling sneak peek for the cabler’s new anthology series Channel Zero, which you can check out below.

Based on Kris Straub’s unnerving “creepypasta” short story that gained notoriety online, Channel Zero: Candle Cove 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.

Channel Zero premieres tonight at 9pm on Syfy.
