Well written but scary for younger children & some teens

This is well written and engaging without gratuitous sex, violence or fear mongering, BUT enough frightening supernatural content to lead to nightmares in younger children, or sensitive teens. Make sure you're comfortable with the level of frightening content for the individual needs of your child. It is pretty spooky... I wish this site had an icon for scary content.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

A blend of Rosemary's Baby, the BBC's Bedlam, and Ghostbusters (minus the proton packs), 666 Park Avenue is hardly the most original -- or believable -- show on television. But it still delivers some well-produced scares along with an effectively intriguing premise that makes you want to keep tabs on the Drake's seemingly doomed tenants, if that's your thing. It's also a decent pick for parents and teens to watch together, with nothing too scary or too sexy to get too worried about.

There's an element of camp as well, and that's much-needed in terms of tone. (Because, let's face it: how seriously can you take a script that has the devil and his wife living on Park Avenue?) Much like ABC's soapy drama Revenge, this has "guilty pleasure" written all over it.
