Netflix Has Another Original Series, ‘Hemlock Grove’

House of Cards was pretty amazing. The fact it’s an original Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey and directed by David Fincher made it even more amazing. The show gave people a reason to stick with Netflix. Not that the new season of Arrested Development wasn’t already doing it for me.

That said, today Netflix announced the premiere of another original series. This one from Eli Roth called Hemlock Grove. All 13 episodes from season 1 will be on Netflix starting April 19.

From executive producer Eli Roth and based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, Hemlock Grove is a riveting one-hour murder mystery that revolves around the residents of a former Pennsylvania steel town. When 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell is brutally murdered, any of Hemlock’s peculiar inhabitants – or killer creatures – could be suspects. Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems. Beautiful, terrifying and graphic, Hemlock Grove is unlike anything else in its genre.

The trailer doesn’t make it seem like much but neither did the trailer for House of CardsIt almost seems like a cheap ploy to capitalize on the fading popularity of vampires and werewolves. Mostly werewolves. Granted, it sounds like it wants to be much more than that but I’m guessing there’s still a werewolf love triangle because there’s always a werewolf love triangle. They’re the drama queens of the supernatural world.
