Channel Zero: Candle Cove may not be a perfect show, but it is, without a doubt, one of the best horror shows produced this year. After three episodes, the story of murderous children, creepy puppets and a town lost in grief, continues to deliver an intriguing tale that gets darker each week.
Director Craig William MacNeill does a masterful job creating a gripping and eerie setting in which the presence of unseen evil forces is palpable. However, Channel Zero: Candle Cove’s main issue is inconsistency. Moments of pure genius are followed by clunky dialogues and weak plotlines. Don’t get me wrong; the good significantly outnumbers the bad in this show, but the contrast between the high and lows after a while, becomes distracting.
