Here’s That Hemlock Grove Season 2 Behind-the-Scenes Werewolf Transformation Clip!

We told you they’d put one of these up again and were very happy to find this featurette! Check it out below.

Good for them for using practical effects again whenever possible. This time, they had to figure out how to “pull a full-sized man out of a wolf”!

It’s also cool to see the interviews with the younger actors on the show talk about how much better it looks than CGI.

They’re right–it’s a LOT more work (we’re guessing they had to hand-punch those hairs in individually on the black wolf model, and that’s some serious time and effort to put in), but the pay-off is absolutely worth it.

All ten episodes of Hemlock Grove Season 2 are available on Netflix streaming now. If you’re watching for the effects, we can confirm there is triple the amount of gore than there was on Season One!

Hemlock Grove Season 2 – Behind The Scenes Featurette (Plus Gallery) Reveals Tons of Gory Practical Effects

“If you ever come back here again, it won’t be your tongue I rip out, it’ll be your lungs.”

We were hoping to post another breakdown of how the practical effects for another grisly werewolf transformation were done (hopefully by Greg Nicotero again), since the season 2 premiere featured another great one. Maybe Netflix will add one to their You Tube channel (we’ll keep our eyes, well, peeled) but in the meantime, there’s a great behind-the-scenes featurette that shows more gore than the red band trailer we posted before. Check it out below – this season is sick! We’re only halfway through and can confirm it might even be more twisted than Season 1…

…and of course,  we’d be remiss not to put up a screencap gallery (click on an image to enlarge, but warning, at least one of the scenes these depict made us wince and curl our toes when watching the episode):

So far, this season is less of a slow burn than season one (sticking to ten episodes was a smart idea). You can check out all ten episodes on Netflix any time, because they all premiered today.
