“Channel Zero: No-End House” Hits “Lost” Levels of Weirdness

“Channel Zero: No-End House” Hits “Lost” Levels of Weirdness

Last year we turned to “Channel Zero” to watch Syfy’s inaugural creepypasta that took us to “Candle Cove”. The show was like watching horror poetry in motion with so much strange and unsettling imagery mixed in with the otherworldly/fantastical vibe. It was like nothing I have ever seen and I had hoped it would bring upon a strong fanbase that could produce several seasons. Thankfully, this is looking to become a fall tradition as this coming Wednesday, September 20th, bring the season premiere of “Channel Zero: No-End House.

Inspired by Brian Russell’s Creepypasta tale, this season tells the story of a young woman named Margot Sleator who visits the No-End House: a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms. When she returns home, Margot realizes that everything has changed. Amy Forsyth, Aisha Dee, and John Carroll Lynch star.

If you needed some sort of catalyst to announce the beginning of fall and set the stage for Halloween, “No-End” is exactly that. While the characters don’t spend all that much time in the house, the fantastical cinematography and moody lighting make each episode feel like its own haunted attraction.  It’s again unnerving and unworldly, turning in a somber and soothing horror series thats weirdness is its soul. What’s so great is, much like “Lost”, the show’s madness is completely unapologetic, owning it nearly to a fault. It’s like watching a distorted prop effect; something is off and it makes you incredibly uncomfortable. It truly is creepypasta come to life.

Being that the season is only six episodes, it’s an easy watch that quite literally leads right into Halloween. In fact, maybe you’d want to binge it the night before the season finale? Personally, I can’t wait to see what’s next from the super team that includes “Hannibals” Nick Antosca returning as executive producer, showrunner and writer, alongside executive producer Max Landis. Steven Piet directed all six episodes. Harley Peyton (“Twin Peaks”) is writer-co-executive producer, while Don Mancini (“Hannibal”, creator of Child’s Play) also serves as a writer-supervising producer.

When you enter “No-End House” this coming Wednesday know that you may never find a way out…

    Half way through the first season right now and really enjoying it. Looking forward to diving into season 2 as it airs!

    I am super happy this is more chilling mind bending horror for us on tv!!! I loved the first season & all of the weird glory…… I hope this show stays around since my other love AHS is now just completely terrible. AHS could learn a thing or 2 about how to build dread & to make your audience actually think….. Bravo for this little show on Syfy. Lets hope it keeps the audience it deserves. More recognition please!

    Still would have loved to see Antosca’s take on Friday the 13th. His screenplay was badass!

    Ah, my favourite horror video- a disembodied female voice calmly saying, “This content is currently unavailable.”

    Snark aside, I’m interested in this show. Last season wasn’t perfect, but I love shorter series taking risks and doing weird stuff. Fingers crossed for this season!

  • I think this season will be worth even more than the first season (althought i love candle cove much more than this)
