Netflix's first foray into original programming, the political thriller House of Cards, has been far and away a major success for the company. The series has generated enough views and buzz to make the prospects of any future original programming pretty darn golden. We'll see if that's the case when Hemlock Grove premieres next month.
Hemlock Grove is a horror series set in a small Pennsylvania town where a seventeen-year-old girl is murdered and the main suspect is a rumored werewolf. The series' first three episodes are executive produced by splatter horror aficionado Eli Roth (Hostel), if that gives you any idea about the tone of this series.
A new poster for the series seems to assure us that, in addition to the blood and gore that Roth's presence promises, there's going to be at least a mild psychological element to the series. It's a striking image of a human arm emerging from a wolf's muzzle. "The real monster is within," the poster's tagline promises.
This poster's striking visuals might be enough to convince me to tune in when the series premieres on Netflix April 19. What do you think?
