Just finished season two of the Netflix original series, Hemlock Grove. If you have not seen this show and you're a fan of horror then put it in the front of your queue. If your one of the few that still have any doubts whether Netflix can compete with networks on television then watch Hemlock Grove.
I'm not going to lie, I only want you to watch it so they get renewed. I want a season 3! With that said if you like werewolves and vampires (not the preteen overly romanticized kind) you will like Hemlock Grove. They bring back the gore, the terror and dare I say balls to vampire and werewolf shows.
The cast and crew are amazingly talented, ranging from Famke Janssen (Olivia Godfrey) to Madeleine Martin (Shelley Godfrey). The list of directors is equally impressive from Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways-2010) to Spencer Susser (Hesher-2010) to Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever).
Sometimes when a show gets renewed the second season isn't as powerful or awe inspiring as the first, this is not the case with Hemlock Grove. The show continues to build upon the excellent first season and expands the world beautifully. In my opinion the second season is better than the first and that is no small feat.
So what are you waiting for? Go watch this amazing show! I assure you it is very good. On a personal note my favorite character is Shelley.
