Channel Zero: No End House Review: Syfy's Horror Anthology Remains The Scariest Thing On TV

Editor's Note: In support of Channel Zero: No-End House's season finale on Syfy, airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT, IGN asked showunner, creator and executive producer Nick Antosca to share with our readers the creepypastas -- or Internet horror stories turned urban legends -- that inspire him.

Season 2 of Syfy's horror anthology series Channel Zero is based on the famous creepypasta "No-End House," after Season 1 was inspired by "Candle Cove." No-End House tells the story of a group of friends who get trapped in a viral haunted house that is not at all what it seems. Remember: beware the cannibals.

If you’re up late at night on the Internet, you may come across them. They’re called creepypastas -- the modern day urban legends -- and 3am is the best time to read them. Scary "true" stories, often with no known author.

Here are some of my favorites.

1. Dogscape

When the familiar becomes bizarre, sometimes you get true nightmare fuel. The author of "Dogscape" takes dogs – creatures most of us love – and twists and distorts them. In “Dogscape,” pieces of dogs have been mish-mashed together and have spread across the land like a disease, taking over the world as we know it. The ground is formed from dog parts. The food is made of puppies. The water is dog drool. The dog “creatures” have eroded and subjugated humanity. It’s weird and horrifying and awesome.

2. Psychosis

One of the scariest things in the world is the inability to trust your own thoughts, your own perception of reality. In "Psychosis," an isolated programmer has cut himself off from the world, and hasn’t seen another human in person for days. He’s convinced an entity wants him to come outside so that it (or they) can capture him. His thoughts unravel rapidly. People try and convince him to come out, claiming he’s had a mental breakdown. He’s given all the reasons in the world to believe that he’s wrong. But what if he’s right? And a monster waits for him on the other side of his door?

3. Russian Sleep Experiment

I’ve struggled with bouts of insomnia throughout my life. A lack of sleep does strange things to your mind. It plays tricks on you. Wears at you. In the "Russian Sleep Experiment," prisoners of war are kept awake long term with a gas. They experience hallucinations, chew off their own skin. As their sanity slips away, so does their humanity. I've been looking for the author of this story for a while, with no luck.

4. Borrasca

I don’t want to ruin the ending of the story, but creepypasta "Borrasca" takes the classic “town with a secret” and makes it much, much more disturbing. I will say that there’s a forbidden place in the town called Borrasca, where the kids claim “The Skinned Men” live and where locals disappear. The adults seemingly dismiss the story, but it turns out they know more about this children’s tale than they’re letting on.

5. Anansi’s Goatman Story

A group of teenagers go camping in the woods, and share the urban legend of the Goat Man – a man with the head of a goat who’s able to shapeshift. Reminiscent of The Thing, "Anansi’s Goatman Story" taps into our distrust of others and a sense of paranoia. As the teenagers camp, they slowly realize that the Goatman is stalking them – and blending in among them.

6. I Found a Hidden Door in My Cellar and I Think I’ve Made a Big Mistake

Your home is supposed to be a place of solace. You know it – every nook and cranny. And then one day you stumble across a door. You've never seen this door before. It leads into an impossible space – a passage that physically shouldn't exist. And there’s something inside. You probably shouldn't have let it out. Read:

7. I’m a Search and Rescue Officer...

There’s something about the wilderness. What can hide in the trees. In this series of posts, a Search and Rescue Officer shares different anecdotes that lost hikers or campers shared with him when they were found. Faceless men stalking them. Disappearances. And staircases in the middle of the woods that many see but no one talks about, other than to say, “Stay away.”
