News & Interviews for Channel Zero: Butcher's Block
Channel Zero has found some of its greatest stories from the ways that trauma can manifest itself in jarring physical forms. (Consider the ominous glowing birth orb from "No-End House.") "Butcher's Block" is no exception.
Channel Zero has finally come into its own with Butcher's Block, delivering on the promise of hallucinatory imagery combined with the dreamlike fables of the narrative.
By situating our bloody present in our bloody past, Butcher's Block manages to get a firmer, toothier grip on tomorrow than the more celebrated futurism of Black Mirror.
A very appetizing morbid dish for the best terrifying television menu of the moment. [Full Review in Spanish]
Disturbing and visually compelling, Butcher's Block makes for a welcome return of the best horror series on television.
Butcher's Block finds ways to literally and figuratively prod at the human mind in ways that will leave your skin damp with panic and crawling with disgust.
Channel Zero may not generate the same sort of buzz and hype as American Horror Story, but it continues to stand shoulders above its competition.
Audience Reviews for Channel Zero: Butcher's Block
Mar 15, 2018Narratively, I do not know what to make of this show. It has absolutely no story worth trying to synopsize and I cannot see why it takes six long episodes to tell. Overall, it seems like a programme made for and by people suffering from phobic reactions, depression and anxiety. To that end, its highly effective: the nightmare imagery of cannibalism and filth, hallucination and mutilation is all very vivid and nasty but it goes on and on, repeating itself until the thrills are gone, replaced by (in my case) a weary desire to see the whole thing wrapped up and done. Elements from earlier seasons include a sense of placelessness or Nowhereville that suggests a decayed and abandoned America; unlikeable or unknowable characters placed in a rat-maze of surrealist ordeals, in which one magic door opens onto another creepy tableau or diorama; a big-name actor, in this case an uncommitted-looking Rutger Hauer; a sense of ritualistic premeditation which means some dread but no suspense. The details are visceral but the story is thin, dream-like, like a horrible dream forgotten in the moments after waking. I found it dull, ugly and fleeting but Im prepared to accept that it may have been made with someone very different in mind.Charles B Super Reviewer
Feb 18, 2019Great Torture p*** for the depressed and closet sociopaths. No storyline, hideous cast, and gruesome way over the top Gore to trick people into thinking they're saying something original. This TV shows rating Perfectly summarizes the world we are living in. People don't need a storyline anymore, Romance or a decent action sequences come in second to cannibalism and incest. Don't get me wrong, when done right like in Hannibal, gruesome TV can be an essential part of the storytelling. This is sort of like watching all most bloody and gruesome scenes from Hannibal but rather than a entertaining storyline in between you get an early 90s soap opera quality storytelling... A mash-up of Downton Abbey, The Hills Have Eyes and the days of our lives. giving you the perfect recipe for overdramatic overly gory complete and total nonsense. Do your brain a favor and don't watch this turd. If you must, Go into it as if you were the first person to see it, ever, and I believe you will agree, this is absolute trash and a total waste of time. Season 1 and 2 are worth a watch. Season one was actually pretty creepy and entertaining.
Aug 05, 2018Absolutely fascinating and terrifying. A lot of gore and killing, yet it is the storyline of the descent in to schizophrenia, and the fear of, that really makes "Butcher's Block" so compelling. All the cast are in top form, the sets are outstanding and the discursive storyline of reality and madness is just top-notch. Highly recommend.
Mar 30, 2018Great show. This year was excellent. Great take on people eating animals and human sense of entitlement as the top of the food chain. very end, quietly saying it's a vegan meal very nicely done.
Mar 09, 2018I had thought the series had ended in the first season and channel zero wasnt coming back. The first season just kind of ended and in a strange, violent place and left the viewer hanging I was wondering if I missed some episodes? I only watched an episode or two of the seocnd season and then lost track. Just tuned in to 'Butcher's Block' and though disturbed and distgusted i am rigorously horrified. This is a good thing as a fan of horror when the viewer is so engaged and wants to shut it off but keeps on watching.great original plot line, acting, setting, so frightening ly strange., better than any episode of american horror story that i did turn off several seasons ago and never turned back on
Mar 07, 2018So far It seen to be good.
