Hemlock Grove Trailer: The Next American Horror Story? WE Fans Will Be The Judge Of THAT, Netflix! (Vulture.com)

This is the second piece on the Netflix Original series, coming this April 19, called Hemlock Grove (almost mis-typed that as “Hemlock Groove,” which actually would be a more interesting title) that has compared it to trusty ol’ American Horror Story. I think this isn’t the best move for the series,  since we American Horror Story fans have had a pretty high standard after watching the series. Also, watching a movie or a TV series that reminds you of a better, similar one (that you now wish you were watching instead, and sometimes just go back to the better one and watch it again) wears thin within minutes.  Movie fans of all genres know that’s the kiss of death.

We feel like making a list of all the things could wrong with it and another list of the things HG  has going for it, but we’ll reserve judgement till we find out a little more. The only plus signs we can come up with now are #1: Eli Roth and #2:  that you can binge and watch every episode in a row, back-to-back.

The link to the story and trailer is below (this is a Re-Press from Vulture.com – we write this part, on the link it’s all them).

Here is the original PR blurb about the show:

Netflix Original Series  presents Hemlock Grove, from executive producer Eli Roth and based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name. The series will be available for members to watch instantly and in its entirety beginning April 19, 2013.

All 13 episodes of the series, which stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell, Freya Tingley, and Dougray Scott will début concurrently in all territories that Netflix is available – U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, Brazil and Scandinavia.

The series revolves around the eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town and the murder of 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell.  Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing that nothing is what it seems.

Hemlock Grove marks the first foray into television by internationally acclaimed horror master Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), who also directed the first episode. The series is executive produced by Roth, McGreevy & Shipman, Mark Verheiden, Deran Sarafian, Eric Newman and Michael Connolly. The series was developed by Brian McGreevy & Lee Shipman. This one-hour murder mystery is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.

Ooooo!  Do we get to see where he keeps his big stash of CRACK, too?  For some reason, we weren’t shocked by the opening scene. Not sure what this says about us, but within 30 seconds of the cleavage-y, expensive prostitute’s appearance we knew what her specialty was.  But there’s some shockers from Ryan Murphy here… more coming soon!

Lana: I am tough …but I’m no cookie.
