666 Park Avenue - Pilot Review


Evil has a wickedly delicious new home Sundays this Fall on ABC.

Starring Dave Annable ("Brothers and Sisters") and Rachael Taylor ("Charlie's Angels") as a couple who moves into  a apartment complex on Park Avenue and becomes the co-managers of the building, 666 Park Avenue is haunting, alluring, and addictive. The series also stars Terry O'Quinn as Gavin Doran, the building's owner, Vanessa Williams as Olivia, his wife, and Robert Buckley and Mercedes Masohn as a couple who also reside in the place.

The episode opens at a classical music concert in New York City, as O'Quinn's character is sitting with his wife watching a first chair violinist play in the orchestra. As the violinist continues to play, his hands begin to bleed as he presses his fingers against the violin strings. After the concert, the violinist rushes back to his apartment as he rushes to escape. He receives a phone call from Gavin (O'Quinn), in which viewers are let in on the deal that they made—a talentless violinist who asks to become first chair. After trying to escape the building, the violinist is somehow sucked into the wall, disappearing forever...and that is only one of the many victims claimed in the first episode.

The cinematography in the Pilot Episode was spectacular, with eerie lighting and camera movement to create a glossy but dark tone for the show. The episode was also very well-written, with several jaw-dropping moments and a cliffhanger at the end that will certainly leave viewers wanting more. While not much is given away about why the incidents that occur in the Pilot are happening, viewers do get an insight into the lives of the residents who live there, who all seem to have made a deal with the devil for a better, more comfortable life.

666 Park Avenue is dark, scary and seductive and is easily one of the best new shows of the fall season.


Tune in Sundays at 10/9c this Fall on ABC. **Please note that this is only a preview of the early version of the pilot**

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
