Can’t wait for next year’s reboot of John Carpenter’s Halloween? Then you should definitely check out Channel Zero: No-End House. The second season of SYFY’s Creepypasta-inspired anthology show premieres Sept. 20 and, according to creator Nick Antosca, owes a debt to Carpenter’s horror classic as well as the filmmaker’s subsequent films The Thing and Prince of Darkness. “Those are the ones that explicitly influence the season,” says Antosca of No-End House, which is based on Brian Russell’s story of the same name.

Amy Forsyth stars as Margot Sleator, a young woman who visits the titular building, a haunted house that consists of increasingly disturbing rooms. “She is going through a difficult time in her life,” Antosca tells EW. “She goes into a haunted house with her friends, and finds out that the house is able to pull things out of her mind and use them against her.”

While the future may hold terrors for the characters on the show, it looks decidedly bright for the Channel Zero franchise, with the series’ third season having already wrapped shooting.

“Without going into too much detail, the first season is a Stephen King vibe, the second season is a John Carpenter vibe, and the third season is more of a Dario Argento vibe,” says Antosca.
