by     Posted 303 days ago

Hemlock GroveEli Roth‘s gothic horror series, has received the green light from Netflix to start production on a second season.  The campy but atmospheric and ultimately satisfying first season showcased the uneasy friendship between two attractive supernaturals (played by Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiron) from very different backgrounds in a small Pennsylvania town amidst a backdrop of gruesome murders, family secrets and some very curious onlookers.

The series is based on the Brian McGreevy novel of the same name, and while the author said in a Reddit AMA earlier this year that there will not be any more books in his series, the Netflix series obviously has no intention of slowing down (is this what Game of Thrones fans should expect if George R. R. Martin doesn’t hurry up with his next installments?)  Hit the jump for more about a new showrunner, and what Roth says viewers can expect in the upcoming season.

Today, Netflix released all 13 episodes of its new original horror series Hemlock Grove, based on the novel of the same name by Brian McGreevy and produced by Eli Roth.  After the critical success of the subscription platform’s House of Cards series, it’s easy to see why viewers would be excited for the next offering.  Hemlock Grove though is worlds away from House of Cards, and while many outlets have slammed the series as being practically unwatchable, I actually have to give it credit for a few things despite its larger flaws.  Put it in the category of “guilty pleasure.”  And, actually, it manages to have a little something for everyone, even those who aren’t horror genre fans.  Hit the jump for more.

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.

Today, it’s open to the public, though its interiors and garden remain much the same as they were when McLaughlin lived in it in the 1930s. It’s also the site of a number of famous film and television shoots, including the original X-Men, Billy Madison, Warehouse 13 and The Ref. On the day Collider visited, a much different series is wrapping up principal photography:  Netflix’s new original series Hemlock Grove. Hit the jump to read our full set visit report.
