Not content with splattering gore across the big screen, Eli Roth is now bringing his horror-pushing talents to its smaller cousin with Netflix’s latest original series, Hemlock Grove. Take a look at the trailer above.
Based on Brian McGreevy’s titular novel (and adapted by the writer himself alongside Roth), Hemlock Grove is set in a small Pennsylvania steel town whose best years are long behind it. Now a weird, dilapidated place, the death of a 17-year-old girl prompts an investigation into the area’s dark secrets, seething with supernatural evil, sex and manipulation.
“Hemlock Grove is unlike anything else in its genre,” says chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “It’s sexy, gripping, emotional and twisted, and we’re certain viewers are going to be captivated by its intensity.”
The cast includes Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell and Freya Tingley. Netflix, in what is quickly becoming its trademark, will release all 13 episodes in one go on April 19.
