Way back in March is when news first broke about Eli Roth finally returning to the director’s chair with is upcoming Netflix original series, Hemlock Grove. I’ve been excited for this series from the get-go because Netflix has given Roth the creative freedom to go as dark as the story needed to be. And because of that creative freedom, there was a lot of potential for Roth to really make this series his own.
I’m pretty impressed with the trailer for the series so far and it definitely seems to have embraced its dark tone. The idea of being able to watch every episode at once instead of waiting every week is also a huge plus. Watch the trailer below and spill your thoughts!
The story, “Revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey Scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.”
