Channel Zero Candle Cove review

Syfy‘s Channel Zero: Candle Cove, through the run of its short season, felt like Rectify meets Fortitude meets Fargo and they all end up meeting American Horror Story!!! IT was surprisingly good.

Channel Zero is an anthology series telling the stories of Creepypastas, Internet short form horror stories, including Candle Cove and the No-End House. (No-End House will be the next season.)

The cast includes Paul Schneider, Abigail Priowsky, John Carrol Lynch, Fiona Shaw, and more.

Channel Zero on Amazon

The series starts out with a slow, methodical story that focuses on one man’s trauma in two eras, the present and the past, from his youth, 1980. As the story develops, we see children become manipulated, which in turn, manipulates adults.

But during this slow build of a story,I found myself drawn in by where the story was taking us, in the present and the past events. They made no sense and still came together to make more and more sense with each episode.

Candle Cove feels like a blend of some of the previously noted twisted shows. It starts becoming messed up, it’s dark, it’s engaging, and at times, it can actually shock you.
