Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

Netflix official description wrote:
The Monster Is Within
In the shadows of a rusted Pennsylvania steel town, the mangled body of a teenage girl is discovered. As they hunt for a monster among them, rumors mount and many of the eccentric residents become suspects, from the newly arrived gypsy family to the wealthy Godfrey clan. In the twisted world of Hemlock Grove, everyone hides a dark secret. From director Eli Roth (“Hostel”) comes a chilling supernatural series based on Brian McGreevy’s novel.
The show pilot is being directed by Eli Roth, who is also directing the pilot. It also appears to have the author of the book on which is based, Brian McGreevy ivolved.
Netflix page, with trailers.
And they also revealed a clip featuring the shows - very gory - werewolf transormation.

Cast:
Famke Janssen as Olivia Godfrey

Bill Skarsgard (younger brother of True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard) as Roman Godfrey

Landon Liboiron as Peter Rumancek

Penelope Mitchell as Letha Godfrey

Lili Tayloras Lynda Rumancek

Dougray Scott as Dr. Norman Godfrey

Freya Tingleyas Christina Wendall

Recurring:

Aaron Douglas as Sheriff Sworn

Nicole Boivin as Shelley Godfrey

Tiio Hornas Destina Rumancek

Kandyse McClure as Dr. Chausser

Ron Mustafaa as Tom Mayer

Eliana Jones as Alexa Sworn

Emilia McCarthy as Alyssa Sworn

Don Francks as Nicolae Rumancek

Joel de la Fuenteas Dr. Johann Pryce

I've never gone for Roth's torture porn movies, but this has me pretty excited.

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

Thanks for the reminder. April 19!

House of Cards wasn't binge fodder for me, but I think this one might be. So what's the plan, people need to avoid this thread until they've seen the whole show? Is it 6 episodes total?

Netflix really needs some way to save an upcoming original series to your streaming queue the way you can save DVDs. It's silly that there's no way to just say "send this to my Roku when it debuts" at any time and then forget about it until it shows up on the release date, even if you save it months before the debut.

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

I'd say spoilers are welcome since it'll all be up at once. I'll probably work it into my rotation (I usually watch three or four things at a time on Netflix), but if other people binge and want to discuss the whole thing they should feel free to do so. I might have a mod add a spoiler warning once the show is released.
According to Wikipedia it's going to be a full 13 episode season.

Be lucky that you even have a queue.. They still havent implemented it to nordic Netflixes.

Too much trouble if everyone puts number of episodes watched in beginning of their post? Like watched 3/13 episodes. That way you can ignore posts that may have spoilers. Or would thread get too confusing with that?

Hopefully its atleast same quality as House of cards was.

They've added "Add to list" on the UK site but not the apps.

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

I suppose everyone could spoiler code all comments with the episode number. Would make for a strange thread.

Why would Netflix launch anywhere and not include the ability to compile a queue? That's just basic. Their UI design philosophy is a mystery to me.

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

Yeah, I've never heard about the lack of queues before, that is weird. I couldn't image not having a queue, that seems like one of the most basic elements of the Netflix system.

Maybe queue-system is too integrated to their dvd-rental service, which they didnt launch in nordic countries. No idea.

I guess their recommendations mostly work ok, and there's always recently watched list. If I want to watch something later, I watch couple of seconds and then I can find it from Recently watched list and watch it later.

But I doubt that I miss release of Hemlock Grove. Atleast with release of House of Cards there was ad covering half of PS3 Netflix interface.

They're doing the same thing on my PS3 for Hemlock Grove.

They've released a new Red Band trailer, which contains "mild fornication, fillatio, lesbian necrophilia, violent hemoraging".

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

I just wanted to remind everyone else who plans on watching this that it is up tomorrow. I'm thinking I'll probably watch at least the first couple episodes tomorrow.

What is this thing called 'queues', and why do I suspiciously feel again that our Netflixes have so much less content?

I'm not sure if I'll bother with this one. On the one hand, I'd never sit down to watch an Eli Roth movie, but on the other hand, American Horror Story is a surprising amount of gleeful stupid fun. I'll probably wait for a couple of reviews.

Our content is vastly reduced from the US version, but many people use proxies to get the US service.

And some people also use proxies to get UK (Ireland?) version. You atleast used to have there some series/movies that arent available in either Nordic or US Netflixes.

Hemlock Grove is in Netflix now.. So probably will watch atleast couple of episodes today.

Re: Hemlock Grove - Netflix Original Horror serie

I'm on the third episode currently. Will probably be the last episode of the day. I'm finding it compelling enough to keep watching. Though probably won't be able to say if I think it's actually good until the end.
