"666 Park Ave" Episode 1: Pilot recap!

Fresh off the heels of thriving horror series' like "American Horror Story" and "The Walking Dead", ABC brings us "666 Park Ave", which debuted Sunday night at 10pm and is off to a promising start. The opening scene packs quite a punch and gives us a peak at just what this old apartment building and it's owner, Gavin, will have in store for us this season. Lets take a look at what the pilot episode gave us shall we? There are slight spoilers ahead, but I'll try to stay away from the major stuff.

The key players:

Trailer: ABC's "666 Park Ave"

Okay ABC, my interest has officially been peaked. "666 Park Ave" looks like just the right mix of supernatural fun and cheesy soap opera charm to have me pretty damn excited for your new fall lineup. The new horror series, which is based on a book series by Gabriella Pierce, centers around a couple who experience supernatural occurrences while moving into their dream apartment. The series stars Lost's own Terry O'Quinn, as well as Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, and Vanessa WIlliams. "666 Park Ave" will air Sunday nights this fall. Check out the official synopsis:

Horror Headlines: Thursday September 22nd, 2011

Charlize Theron has signed on to play an investigator trying to solve a case involving a brutal murder where things might not be as they seem in a new thriller titled "Cities of Refuge". She's also signed on to look fabulous at this year's Oscars! There's really not much else in the way of details on this one so I'm kind of stretching.

Well here's something I never thought I'd type. Raj from "What's Happening" will be in the next Rob Zombie flick!! That's right one Mr. Ernest Thomas, better known as not Rerun has signed on to play the station director of a local rock station in the upcoming witch revenge romp "Lords of Salem". If Zombie can get J.J. Walker then this movie might have some potential.

There's a crap load of horror shows in the works right now and it looks like ABC is looking to create a new drama series based on the book "666 Park Avenue". The show, like the book, will revolve around a couple that move to NYC from the midwest and become managers of a building where the residents have all made deals with the devil. You'd need to make a deal with the devil to find something affordable on the upper east side! Am I right folks? Rent is too damn high.

I'm pretty excited for the US to get its hands on "Haunted Poland", a new Polish flick (seriously!) about a girl who travels back to her home town and encounters evil thanks to a Ouija board, because I'm 99% sure I've met a few of the actresses in the film. And by met I mean thrown 20's at during a bachelor party while they did things I'm positive are illegal in their homelands. Anyway there's a new trailer and poster out for the film that was apparently made for only a thousand dollars. In fairness though a thousand dollars in Poland is pretty much enough to be president, or king or whatever the hell they worship over there. It's cool, I'm Polish so I can mock my people.

In Real People News: 

If there's one thing I've learned about kids it's they will not be ignored. My little bundle of joy will scream like there's no tomorrow if she loses her pacifier. But I guess I should consider myself lucky because here's a Georgia woman who's offspring fired a shotgun through the roof of her van while she was purchasing some drugs. Of course I always find a sitter when I go out for a big score, but that's just me.

I can sum up this one in three words. Decapitation, nipples and hammer. Good luck!
