Netflix’s ‘Hemlock Grove’ Poster Unleashes the Monster Within
Netflix might not be too direct when it comes to releasing the viewing stats of its highest-profile original series to date ‘House of Cards,’ but all accounts have the endeavor as a rousing success. On April 19, the pay-streaming service will strike again with a very different entry into the original programming market, the Eli Roth-helmed ‘Hemlock Grove,’ but will it arrive to the same acclaim? Check out the latest creepy poster from the mysterious new series, and judge for yourself inside!
While we all patiently await the May premiere of ‘Arrested Development,’ April 19 will see Netflix unveiling its latest original series ‘Hemlock Grove,’ the first foray of horror director Eli Roth into serialized TV, if it can even so be called these days.
Starring Famke Janssen, Lili Taylor, Bill Skarsgard (yep, brother to ‘True Blood‘s’ Alexander), Dougray Scott, Penelope Mitchell and Landon Liboiron, and based on the original novel by Brian McReedy, ‘Hemlock Grove’ follows the murder of a young Pennsylvania girl near the former Godfrey steel mill. Suspected is an escapee from the “White Tower,” a biotech facility owned by the former steel magnates, while others believe the killer to be Peter, the teenage Gypsy boy from the wrong side of the tracks.
Today Netflix releases a creepy new poster from the April 19 release, confirming along with the original trailer that wolves (and the people therein) will play a large part in the horror saga. You can check out ‘Hemlock Grove’ for yourself when Netflix releases all the episodes at once, but in the meantime check out the new poster below and tell us what you think in the comments!
