Giving horror fans enough nightmare fuel to last them until next Halloween, Channel Zero: Candle Cove has cranked up the fright factor to eleven over its first four episodes. Over the past couple of weeks, Daily Dead, along with other journalists, had the opportunity to take part in conference calls with showrunner Nick Antosca, who discussed adapting Kris Straub's unsettling creepypasta, how the show found a home at Syfy, getting Greg Nicotero's help in designing the look of The Tooth Child, and what to expect in season 2, which will focus on Brian Russell's NoEnd House.
From being trapped in the possessed Delta 88 to facing a skin-stealing demon, Pepi Sonuga's character, Lacey Emery, the daughter of Linda and Sheriff Emery, has endured a lot since "Ashy Slashy" returned to Elk Grove on Ash vs Evil Dead.

Brought to life with a powerful performance by Duane Jones in George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Ben is a beloved and compelling character from horror cinema. Despite what happened to him onscreen, Ben's story continued over the past year in Double Take's comic book series Soul, a key part of their Night of the Living Dead: Revival universe. With the five-issue Soul now available as a graphic novel (which can also be read in digital form right here on Daily Dead), we caught up once again with writer/editor Michael Coast to discuss the intriguing series that breathed new life into Ben. [Spoiler warning if you haven't read all five issues of Soul.]
