If you simply can't wait for Halloween to arrive, there's nothing we can do — October 31 is still firmly set at the end of the month. If you can't wait for the SYFY anthology series Channel Zero: The Dream Door to premiere, well, get ready to be excited. 

To really kick off SYFY's 31 Days of Halloween in bloody royal style, SYFY is releasing the first episode of Channel Zero: The Dream Door tonight. That's right, the first episode will be coming to and the SYFY app starting at 5 p.m. EST today, a full four weeks ahead of schedule.

The series follows a newlywed couple who have also married each other's secrets. One day they find a very creepy door in their basement, and things devolve from there. The series was created by Nick Antosca, and this installment is directed by Evan Katz. It stars Brandon Scott (Channel Zero: Butcher's Block), Maria Sten (Swanp Thing), Steven Weber (Wings), and Barbara Crampton (You're Next, Re-Animator). 

Though the first episode will enter your lives this evening like a randomly appearing door full of secrets, the rest of the series will likely still come out as planned — it was originally intended to begin on October 26, with further installments playing nightly until the 31. Though you'll be able to access the premiere tonight, you can still tune in and start the madness all over again on the 26th. All six episodes of this installment will be available on VOD following the live premiere on the 26th. 

This is far from the only horror related entertainment that SYFY will be bringing you this month. The 10th annual 31 Days of Halloween will be akin to a coffin quite literally spilling over with the blood of innocents — new episodes of Van Helsing, and Z Nation will be coming, as well as countless horror films. 

Get ready to try and puzzle out what is behind the mysterious door when Channel Zero: The Dream Door unexpectedly (but expectedly) appears tonight. We're willing to bet that it's not a doorway to pleasant dreams and candy blankets.
