In its first two seasons, SyFy’s Channel Zero has established itself as one of TV’s most intriguing, underseen horror properties. Its creepypasta-inspired (creepypastas as essentially internet urban legends) storylines have been presented in a way that has been both stylish and mindbending; a seasonal horror anthology with a deeper and more cerebral purview than the likes of American Horror Story. It was clear in our interview with series creator/writer Nick Antosca that he views each season of the show as a disparate artistic experiment, working with emerging young horror directors to capture freshly unnerving takes every time.

That brings us to the third installment of the show, Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block, which is coming our way in 2018. Based on the eight-part creepypasta known as “Search and Rescue Woods” by a Reddit writer of the same handle, it’s hard to tell exactly where this story is leading us, but the imagery is appropriately horrific. The original creepypasta, however, is described thusly:

The story follows the experiences of its narrator, an unnamed SAR officer working in a national forest, as he recalls stories of supernatural happenings, strange disappearances, and mysterious staircases in the middle of the woods.

In the last 24 hours, a series of promo videos has appeared on the web that seem to highlight a number of these elements, including those mysterious staircases. Check them all out below, as each one lasts for only a few seconds.
