Hemlock Grove

Where do you go when you want to put on a 13 hour movie? Netflix, evidently.

Yes, its true, Netflix is getting in on the supernature of things with HEMLOCK GROVE. The series is based on Brian McGreevy's book. It will be directed by Eli Roth of HOSTEL fame.

Roth is more than just an actor.

"We saw Netflix as a new medium," Roth explained. "If people want to watch the whole thing straight through they can. And to us that was so exciting because modern people watch things on their iPad, they're watching things at home. They're not sitting waiting for 9 o'clock Thursday night, they're DVRing everything and watching when they have time."

God, I'm always confusing them!- gutterbrains

Roth says the show will be more like Twin Peaks than Twilight.

"We never realistically considered pitching it to networks," McGreevy noted. "Thematically speaking, we wanted to keep some of the more intense material -- the book itself has its moments, and when you have Eli Roth, who's a major creative collaborator in this project, you're not going for the PG-13 take." He went on explain that they're working with the French studio Gaumont and wanted to maintain "a very European sensibility in the storytelling," to have a "much more adult approach to the violence and sexuality."

Its werewolf mayhem. A boy's struggle being somewhere between human and monster.

Do you remember Lily and Johnny in Arizona Dream in 1993?

The show will star Lili Taylor as a gypsy mother. Famke Janssen of X-Men fame is part of the cast along with Landon Liboiron, Emilia McCarthy, and Bill SkarsgÄrd.

"Hemlock Grove" started shooting June 6th, and is tentatively slated to go live on Netflix on January 2013.
