Pop quiz: do you know what ‘Creepypastas’ are? Me either. Dr Google defines this as ‘internet horror stories passed around on forums and other sites to disturb and frighten readers’.

Now that we are all up to speed, Channel Zero is a anthology series which is based on these haunting stories. Don’t be disheartened by the horror classification, Channel Zero is a well-polished series (currently mid-way through it’s third season) that boasts A-grade acting, excellent sound design and unparalleled costume design. Admittedly, i’m only half way through the second season but that’s all I needed to see before knowing (with certainty) that this show will not let you down if you give it a go.
