Regular readers of Horror Freak News know that we were huge supporters of Syfy’s horror anthology series Channel Zero: Candle Cove, based on the creepypasta by Kris Straub. Last November, we gave you the first details on Season 2, which will be based on the No-End House creepypasta. To recap:
A 2nd season of Channel Zero has already been filmed, and the theme has just been revealed: The No-End House! It’s another popular creepypasta, this one created by Brian Russell, which tells of a haunted house attraction that so scary, no one has ever made it all the way through. In fact, the odds are so good that you’ll tap-out, the proprietors will pay anyone who completes the attraction $500. It’s a lure that sounds too good to be true—which, unfortunately, it is!
More details regarding Channel Zero: No-End House emerged from a recent interview Nick Antosca, the show’s co-creator, gave on the Shock Waves horror podcast, a summary of which was posted yesterday at Blumhouse.com. Here’s the scoop:
Antosca: “It’s based on “NoEnd House” by Brian Russell, which is another popular viral creepypasta. NoEnd House is a haunted house in the sense of it (being) a haunted fun house. It’s a series of rooms, each one is scarier than the last. And if you make it through all the rooms, you win a prize. I don’t want to give away the twist of Brian’s story, go online and read it. We just took that basic core concept, and built a world around it. I would describe the vibe of Season 2 as IT FOLLOWS meets SOLARIS. It’s very different from Season 1. It has the same principles behind it. The same horror atmosphere of dread. Thematically, it’s connected to Season 1 in that it deals with some of the same themes. They were written in the same writer’s room at the same time. You will feel Steven’s voice and our intention to tell a different story.”
