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**
