While the early buzz behind Hemlock Grove is mixed at best, I still have hopes that this series could prove to be worth watching. Earlier today Netflix released a brand new red band trailer for their upcoming series that debuts on April 19th and I have to say that it restored a bit of my faith in the production.
“Hemlock Grove is a riveting one-hour 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.”
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think! The series looks to have the requisite blood, violence and sex to grab my attention, but whether or not it has the substance to keep it remains to be seen. The series stars Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, and Penelope Mitchell.
