The terrifying new series Channel Zero premieres in a week, and Syfy has dropped a new trailer to make sure you’re good and freaked out before it hits.

Subtitled Candle Cove, the miniseries is based on the popular Creepypasta about a mysterious children’s show that causes kids to do some terrifying things. The series centers on a man’s obsessive recollections of the mysterious 1980s children’s television program c. Once he starts digging, he realizes the show may have played a role in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood. 

The more footage we see, the more this series seems to be channeling the horror vibe of American Horror Story. Just with a creepy children’s show thrown in to make it even more unsettling. From skin suits to creepy kids, this one has all the nightmare-inducing visuals you’ve come to expect from modern horror.

Channel Zero premieres Oct. 11 on Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.) as part of the network’s 31 Days of Halloween programming block.
