Get ready for some thrills and chills with Channel Zero, a horror anthology series. The first one out the gate will be an adaptation of Kris Straub's Candle Cove, which tells the tale of a mysterious 1980s children's TV program and the show's role in a slew of murders.
The series runs like clockwork in that nearly every five minutes, in the episodes we were presented, there is a legitimate unsettling scary moment to whet your whistle for terror. The series is sure to go down as a horror classic, so prepare yourself and enter Candle Cove. You won’t regret it.Collider Full Review
Channel Zero’s more mundane approach to horror might keep it on the outskirts of popular attention, but the show is all the more compelling for its restraint.The Atlantic Full Review
Once it gets going, Channel Zero: Candle Cove smartly peels back additional layers of its central mystery so that the audience won’t be satisfied until they finally get to the core of what really happened in Iron Hill all those years ago.New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
With its thoughtful, understated performances and visuals and its frank embrace of uncertainty, this show should be compulsively watchable. Instead, the repetitive plotting and clumsy scares punctuating Channel Zero: Candle Cove fill a stylish, spooky story with unwelcome static.The A.V. Club Full Review
Channel Zero might lack a distinct personality of its own to execute a hair-raising, short-form spook fest on the level of its concisely creepy source material, but it has an admirable, all-too-relatable emotional backbone centering on childhood fears, and a range of subtle and in-your-face frights, earning it at least a passing glance on your Halloween watchlist.We Got This Covered Full Review
