Oren Peli and his new televion series which premires tonight on ABC caught me a little off guard. While I am a huge fan of horror televion shows I wasn't exactly sure what to make of THE RIVER. Today has changed that with this brand new full length trailer. I have to say that I am in anticipation of tonights 2 hour broadcast tonight at 9pm est and now have high hopes for this show.
