Roman (Bill Skarsgård) Is this horny teenager who has no problem attracting teenage girls, he smokes, drinks and drive expensive sport car, on the other hand he has a sister who is tall and disfigure, she is like a Frankenstein’s girl type. Two gypsies settle in the town Peter Rumancek (Landon Liboiron) and his mother Lynda (Lili Taylor) of course her son goes to town and shoplift some clothes. Peter might be a werewolf . Now the night they settle down in the park there is a high school girl dead murdered mutilated by some kind of animal. This town has some serious secrets.
This series is a strange fantasy horror TV series. It is going to go well with the teenagers audiences and such. Very interesting new approach and uses old European myths and legends with Sci-Fi as well. The gore and the special effects are kept to a minimum. It is centered on story telling as well. Some of you will find it addictive. The cast is perfect so far. This is a Netflix production and it is going well so far. The cinematography is flawless and beautiful. Over all this it is not a series for everyone but will appeal to many of you. The thing is it was $52 million budget the 1st season but I hear that Game of throne was $60 million the 1st season. Now I can see game of Throne being that much it is shot in I think 4 to 5 different countries but Hemlock Grove is shot in one place. Anyway have fun with this one. One of the producer is Eli Roth.
