So, until we get our review together, check out this review–from the NY Times, no less– of the first three episodes of the series (which incidentally ends with the “You got to be fucking kidding me” line after the first big werewolf transformation, which you can peep here on Horror Boom). Click on the big red link below to check it out–more to come!
We’ve seen all the episodes. Is it worth your time? We have an article coming up with pros and cons. Until then, though there’s this: we found out (only through the end credits of Hemlock Grove, not the IMDB) that KNB/Nicotero-Berger FX did the prosthetics and practical make-up effects for the transformations, and we DEFINITELY spotted their work throughout several other key episodes. Big, big selling point!
