I just started watching 666 Park Avenue last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised that I was a little creeped out right from the beginning. Yay! It actually reminded me a bit of a good scary movie – the right music, the right editing, the right cast. I was hooked.
By the end of the first night, I'd watched three episodes! You see just enough of what is going on to not be lost, but not enough to yawn and feel like you've figured it all out. Sure, you kind of know what to expect from this genre, but it's interesting and engaging.
I noticed in the credits that it's based off a book of the same title. The book doesn't look creepy, just interesting, and it's the first of a series. I downloaded a Kindle sample so I can see if I like it. In the description, the words “chick lit” are used, so I think I might like the book, too. But it's probably more “fun” than scary, I'd guess.
If you like a little creepy and weird and selling-your-soul-to-the-devil type of stories, I think you'll like this one. Like I said, I'm only part-way through the season, but I'm having a great time!
4 stars, Really Liked It
