Eli Roth’s series for Netflix, “Hemlock Grove,” has been met with quite an unbalanced reaction from fans. Honestly, we’ve seen everything from “it sucks” to “it’s awesome” so at the very least it has people talking, and that’s always a good thing. However, it also has them watching.
According to Deadline, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told analysts today that “Hemlock Grove” is “getting viewed by even more subscribers in its first couple of days” than the highly praised “House of Cards” was in February. Yep, horror is indeed a mighty muscle. Our review will be coming as soon as we weed through every episode. In the interim tell us what you think below.
From executive producer Eli Roth and developed by Brian McGreevy (who wrote the novel on which it’s based) and Lee Shipman, “Hemlock Grove” stars Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell, and Freya Tingley.
“Hemlock Grove” is a riveting 13-episode (1 hour each) murder mystery that revolves around the residents of a former Pennsylvania steel town. When 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell is brutally murdered, any of Hemlock’s peculiar inhabitants – or killer creatures – could be suspects. Through the investigation the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems. Beautiful, terrifying, and graphic, “Hemlock Grove” is unlike anything else in its genre.
