Consume the Cannibalistic Trailer for “Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block”!

Consume the Cannibalistic Trailer for “Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block”!

Syfy’s has served up a delicious full trailer for their Creepypasta-inspired “Channel Zero”, which continues with “Butcher’s Block”, premiering on February 7, 2018.

Inspired by Kerry Hammond’s “Search and Rescue Woods” Creepypasta tale, “Butcher’s Block” tells the story of a young woman named Alice (It Follows‘s Olivia Luccardi) who moves to a new city and learns about a series of disappearances that may be connected to a baffling rumor about mysterious staircases in the city’s worst neighborhoods. With help from her sister, they discover that something is preying on the city’s residents.

Blade Runner and Hobo With a Shotgun‘s Rutger Hauer plays the lead villain, Joseph Peach, a 1950s meatpacking magnate who grew increasingly reclusive and then disappeared after his beloved daughters were murdered.

Here’s the full official trailer that transforms a young woman into a cannibal. If you were a fan of last year’s Raw, “Butcher’s Block” looks right up your alley.

Serve or be served…

It Follows star Olivia Luccardi plays Alice Woods, an idealistic young woman who devotes her life to helping the less fortunate, including her schizophrenic sister. But behind a facade of composure, Alice’s struggles with family, money and her own personal health are threatening to push her over the edge.

Holland Roden (“Teen Wolf”) is Zoe Woods, Alice’s older sister – a sharp, tough young woman whose struggles with mental illness have worn her down over the years. She hates that her younger sister has to take care of her and she’d give anything to go back to the way things used to be.

Brandon Scott (Wreck-It Ralph) is featured as Officer Luke Vanczyk, a young but already jaded cop, living in the shadow of his father, the Chief of Police. Luke’s world-weary exterior hides a fierce commitment to justice, and a deep love for his troubled community.

Krisha Fairchild (“Krisha”) stars as Louise Lispector, a retired journalist who has lived in Garrett, Michigan her whole life. Now she spends her days doing taxidermy and working on her personal project: A book about a pattern of disappearances in the city’s worst neighborhood. But when she rents out part of her house to Alice and Zoe Woods, she finds herself in danger from the people behind the disappearances.

Creator Nick Antosca will return as executive producer, showrunner and writer for the third installment. Arkasha Stevenson will direct.

  • Not quite sure how I feel about this, with regards to the Stairs In The Woods series. I wonder if the rights to the story were sold exclusively to Antosca and company, or if future adaptations can be made by other artists. Only because, clearly, this isn’t an adaptation of those stories beyond the stairs, and that series was filled with things that would make a direct adaptation pretty awesome. Otherwise, definitely looking forward to this! Channel Zero is a very well-made series (to me, anyways). I certainly enjoyed Candle Cove more than No-End House, but I’m definitely open to more installments.

    Literally none of this trite garbage is from the original stories. The stairs are even wrong. They’re not freestanding staircases leading to the sky, they’re built into the ground on a hillside. This is what happens when people who can’t come up with original ideas have to buy them from others.

    I agree with the previous commenters, that this doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the source material. But I am still super excited because the first two seasons are amazing!

    i loved Holland Roden on TEEN WOLF and am excited to see her in this. season 2 of CHANNEL ZERO imo was a lot better than season 1 (which was decent-ish). i hope season 3 will be good (maybe even great!) too!

    I am definitely disappointed with this having almost nothing to do with the Search And Rescue / Stairs in the Woods stories; although, I loved the Candle Cove and liked No-End House, so I’m hoping Butcher’s Block will at least be decent.

    I wish they’d switch formats and make it an anthology show. Part of the appeal of creepypasta is that it’s quick and easy to read; even when they’re part of a series, they’re usually self-contained so you don’t have to read it all. I still haven’t finished the second season because of how drawn out it feels

    Liked the first two seasons and really glad for the quick return instead of waiting months, so hopefully it’s good.
