Hemlock Grove: Season 1 - Preview

Hemlock Grove Series 2

Preview by Jack Foley

THE complete season one of the smash US show Hemlock Grove comes to DVD on April 21, 2014, and to celebrate, we have 3 DVDs to give away!

A Netflix Original and produced by Gaumont International Television, Hemlock Grove is from Executive Producer Eli Roth, the brilliantly sinister mind behind modern horror classics Hostel, The Last Exorcism and Cabin Fever. It is also based on the novel by Brian McGreevy and created by McGreevy and Lee Shipman.

Nominated for two Emmy’s for Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Theme Music, the show, which centers around the brutal death of two teenage girls in the town of Hemlock Grove, has an all-star cast that includes Famke Janssen (X-Men, GoldenEye), Dougray Scott (Mission Impossible II), Lily Taylor (The Conjuring), Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova) and Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica).

The series is set in Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania. The town is a mixture of extreme wealth and poverty, as the closing of the town’s steel mill many years earlier caused many to lose their jobs. The town’s main sources of employment are now the Hemlock Acres Hospital and Godfrey Institute for Biomedical Technologies.

Run by the powerful Godfrey family, the Institute is rumored to conduct sinister experiments. The town’s rumour mill turns even more twisted when two teenage girls are brutally murdered.

Peter Rumancek (Liboiron), a 17-year-old gypsy, is suspected of the crimes by some of the townsfolk and is also rumored to be a werewolf. Along with the heir to the Godfrey estate, Roman, he sets out to solve the mystery and prove his innocence.
