The Syfy series Channel Zero: Candle Cove is about a kids’ show featuring puppets, that turns children into psychotic killing machines. It’s based on a modern creepypasta by Kris Straub, but it plays on deep-seated fears that are much older, like: The fear of something nefarious going on beneath seemingly benign events. Fans of this kind of creepy content are encouraged to check out Don’t Hug, Me I’m Scared, a web series that, like Candle Cove, is populated by puppets. Also like Candle Cove: There is something seriously twisted going on! Check out the first episode below and I’m certain you’ll agree: This is some disturbing shit! Bravo!
Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared is the brainchild of British artists Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling, members of the THIS IS IT Collective. Believe it or not, this trio of Sesame-Street-rejects has been fascinating and perplexing fans of all things creepy since 2011. Just recently, in fact all six episodes of DHMIS were included in the September 2016 festival XOXO.
There are 6 episodes in all; you can watch them all, HERE.
