Based on the creepypasta story "Hidden Door" by Charlotte Bywater, The Dream Door tells the story of a husband and wife, Tom and Jillian, who discover a strange, hidden door in their basement.
Secrets soon come to the fore, and Jillian remembers a "protector" she dreamed up as a child. But apparently her "protector" has become real, and he doesn't look like he is much of a protector anymore.
Series creator Nick Antosca (Hannibal) returns to produce and write the screenplay, which is directed by Evan Katz (Cheap Thrills). The Dream Door stars Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy), Maria Sten (Straight Outta Compton), Steven Robertson (Elementary), Steven Weber (Wings), and horror legend Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator).
Channel Zero: The Dream Door will air on SYFY starting Oct. 26, with a new episode airing every night, leading up to the season finale on Halloween night. After the premiere, all six episodes will also be available to binge on VOD.
Check out the trailer above, which starts off fairly tame — like your traditional dark and creepy tale — but about a minute in, things go off the rails and it gets really scary, really fast. Enjoy!
