Channel Zero is everything you WISH American Horror Story would be.

If you LOVE being scared to death by a good ol' fashioned TV horror series like American Horror Story but can't cope with those unnecessary clowns this season then you should probably start binge watching Channel Zero immediately because it's the best show you've never seen.

Horror anthology Channel Zero is like is if American Horror Story and Stranger Things had a baby and asked Black Mirror to be their surrogate, and then made Twin Peaks the Godmother. The show, which is in it's second season, is being described as the scariest show on TV and honestly, sign us the f--- up right now.

Basically the premise of the show stems from those terrifying 'creepypasta' stories on Reddit about myths like Slenderman and all his friends. Each season of Channel Zero is based on different online urban myths with different settings and different characters - see, just like American Horror Story only even more terrifying.


The first season of the show focuses on a guy who returns to his hometown to investigate his brother's disappearance in relation to this weird demonic kids show called Candle Cove. He becomes obsessed with his own memories of the show, only to find out he's the only one that remembers it. 

There's also a monster made entirely of teeth and it's beyond terrifying.


Season two is subtitled 'No-End House', and follows two girls who decide to go to this social-media famous haunted house for a bit of fun. Unbeknownst to them, each room in the house shape shifts to reflect the worst nightmares of whoever enters it. (It's kinda of like Pennywise, but in the form of a house.) The first episode JUST aired so there's still time to jump onboard and avoid spoilers. 

The show, which has 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, has already been renewed for another two seasons (Teen Wolf's Holland Roden has been cast in the third season, by the way) so if you're up for being scared sh*tless, better get binge-watching now.

Channel Zero: No-End House airs on Wednesdays on Syfy... Watch the trailer at the top of the page.
