News & Interviews for Channel Zero: Candle Cove
Candle Cove stands in direct opposition to the histrionics of American Horror Story and the like; it's a quiet, unsettling work that builds to a buzzing, static-hum crescendo in its final act.
Channel Zero: Candle Cove is faithful to creepypasta in the way that matters most: by recognizing that children can experience fear that's as complex, terrifying, and real as anything felt by adults.
Brimming with Stephen King tropes and a bleak version of late-'80s nostalgia, the new horror anthology series is tailor-made for fans of Stranger Things clamoring for a new, darker fix.
It's even more disturbing if you have kids...and a guy in your backyard wearing a skeleton costume.
We're not sure we've ever seen anything like the tooth child in Candle Cove, and it has haunted our dreams ever since.
Season one is okay to miss. Visually it's done really well... but I need stuff to move and I was just sitting there staring at the TV just wondering when things were going to happen.
But the finish of the series, we do not know if it is intended or because of lack of means, but the lack of charisma of its protagonist weighs down a series that wants and can only partially accomplish its goal. [Full Review in Spanish]
Channel Zero is the answer to our unfulfilled nightmares. It is easily the scariest show on television...so why the hell aren't you watching it?
Channel Zero is a slow-drip of terror, but the compelling mystery underneath will keep you glued to the series even when everything else in your brain is telling you to shut it off.
The strength of Channel Zero lies in its ability to offer brief but deeply unsettling flashes of horror that go beyond just the creepy marionette puppets featured in the Candle Cove scenes.
It's a compelling mystery built from the questions the story raises and true to the horror it evokes.
Audience Reviews for Channel Zero: Candle Cove
Sep 27, 2020As an avid fan of all things horror, like the kid's eyes staring at the screen as Candle Cove played on their television, I couldn't keep my eyes off the screen as the story unfolded. I joke that Don Mancini is taking over the horror genre, being the supervising producer of the show, everything he works on is gold. The creepy atmosphere hits you from the very beginning, the blurred lines between reality and fiction puts the audience on edge as the past and present collide. The character's motivations and reasoning for doing things are unsettling. The over use of scary children in horror these days had me a little worried, but that worry was quelled with the main terror being the adults working behind the scenes. The way the crew decided to go between the past and present was reminiscent of a piece of Stephen King's work. All in all the show is a masterpiece keeping the audience wanting more.
May 27, 2020If you are an 80's baby, or even older than 28 you should understand how brutally on point Candle Cove (the first season to one of few enjoyable stories of horror on the television) was with our childhood. I grew up with oddities such as Gumby, Eureka's Castle, Pee Wee's Playhouse, Fraggle Rock and Skinamarink T.V. - this show had me hooked after the first episode. I was frantically searching and impatiently waiting for every episode after. I cannot even begin to understand why everything that is good on cable t.v. never lasts! You wonder why people continue to resort to other forms of entertainment. Amazing peices of work such as My Name Is Earl, Salem and of course...Channel Zero have not lasted to their full potential, yet we still see these talentless peices of doo doo that I don't even need to mention, cuz' you know what I'm referring to. Father Time needs to do something about this B.S. or step aside with the rest of the old wealthy white men and make way for the next generation.
Nov 27, 2019The season is without a doubt strong more than halfway through the season as it keeps steady pace, welcoming performances, and effective scares along with perfect atmosphere, but come the last few episodes, the show seems to get stuck in a rut of on and off with pretty much everything that made it great in the beginning. 6.2/10
Sep 29, 2019I love this show. I love that they take risks and give us something enjoyable that we've been missing in horror movies.
Sep 21, 2019A slow burn of a story that was surprisingly well written out. The costumes and actors do a good job portraying the events unfolding. The conclusions are well played and its a strong start to horror collection.
Aug 28, 2019A great underrated horror series. This had a great story, actors and some greats twists. 4/5
Oct 14, 2018A surprisingly scary and plot heavy season for a TV show, this is an amazing season for an amazing show.
Aug 22, 2018This show was amazing. Definitely creeped me out.
Aug 12, 2018Somewhere between American Horror Story and Stranger things, Channel Zero: Candle Cove provides a meandering plot through the subtle horrors shared by children around the world. Relying on few jump scares or over-the-top special effects, Candle Cove still delivers spine-tingling terror. For those who prefer chills to thrills, a must watch.
Mar 12, 2018at the beginning,i thought it could lead to something.i kept watching because i thought it would become more interesting or scarier or at least build up in some way.the idea is quite interesting but the implementation rather poor,unfortunately.the end was the most disappointing to me.nevertheless,i will give season 2 a chance as it has better reviews.
