The “Tooth Child,” a creepy figure covered in teeth, wanders out of the woods to consume some fingers is this new teaser for the upcoming Creepypasta-based Syfy channel horror anthology series CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE.
From the video description:
Based on a popular “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the Internet), Candle Cove centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.
Nightmares are for real
Candle Cove Creepy Pasta by Kris Straub
Like other viral creepy pastas (the notorious Slenderman, for example) the flash-fiction story Candle Cove by Kris Straub has taken on a life of its own since it was originally posted on Ichor Falls in 2009. It has it’s own wiki, numerous spinoffs, and people who insist the disturbing children’s television series at the center of the story was real and they watched it as kids.
If you haven’t heard of the story before, it’s time to be initiated.
Channel Zero: Candle Cove premieres Tuesday, September 27 at 9/8c on Syfy.
