Hemlock Grove Trailer. Eli Roth, Mark Verheiden‘s Hemlock Grove (2012): Season 1 TV show trailer for NetFlix stars Emilia McCarthy, Aaron Douglas, Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, and Marty Adams. Hemlock Grove‘s plot synopsis: from the book the series is based on “The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel mill. A manhunt ensues—though the authorities aren’t sure if it’s a man they should be looking for. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a foreboding biotech facility owned by the Godfrey family—their personal fortune and the local economy having moved on from Pittsburgh steel—where, if rumors are true, biological experiments of the most unethical kind take place.
Others turn to Peter Rumancek, a Gypsy trailer-trash kid who has told impressionable high school classmates that he’s a werewolf. Or perhaps it’s Roman, the son of the late JR Godfrey, who rules the adolescent social scene with the casual arrogance of a cold-blooded aristocrat, his superior status unquestioned despite his decidedly freakish sister, Shelley, whose monstrous medical conditions belie a sweet intelligence, and his otherworldly control freak of a mother, Olivia.”
This show reminds me of American Horror Story. Its success must have made a show like this seem viable.
More on the content of Hemlock Grove:
Producers say it also focuses on ’emotional violence,’ with Brian McGreevy, author of the source novel, saying “This is like Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? with more people getting mauled, actually.”
He also said that the show would be too violent for regular television, and compared it to content on HBO and Showtime. Looks like we can expect something like a classic ‘town full of monsters’ approach with a little of the bizarro touch of American Horror Story.
Hemlock Grove will also star Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Alanis Peart, Paul Popowich, Dylan Trowbridge, and William deVry.
