Eli Roth is at it again, delivering chills, thrills and bloody disgusting goodness in the newly-released red-band trailer for Netflix’s original series Hemlock Grove. Roth serves as executive producer for the gothic thriller, based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name. The story follows the residents of a former steel town in Pennsylvania after the murder of a 17-year-old girl. Of course, as any investigation goes, it soon begins to unravel the mysteries and obscurities that plague some of its residents. Grove marks Roth’s first venture into television and will also mark Netflix’s latest original series following the successful release of House of Cards earlier this year. By the looks of the trailer, they seem to be pushing the boundaries when it comes to R-rated content. It’s heart-stopping action enveloped in cringe-worthy bloody visuals, with plenty of sex and even a dash of comedy – I’m definitely on board this crazy train.
The series stars Famke Janssen, Penelope Mitchell, Bill Skarsgard, Freya Tingley, and Lili Taylor. All 13 episodes will be available to Netflix members on Friday, April 19th.
