- American Netflix Horror Series
- 3 Seasons
- 33 Episodes
Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, home to Godfrey Institute for Biomedical Technologies, tangled in whispers of sinister experiments happening within. A family of gypsies move in, and soon we witness a girl get mauled by a giant beast of a creature. And this town just happens to be open-minded enough to take into consideration the age-old superstitious idea, that gypsies might also equal to skin-walkers, werewolves…
In the end, it’s either that, or the beast of a Godfrey daughter. But seeing how her vile brother is overprotective of her, and their just as ungodly seeming mother is protective of him, it’d be far easier if it was a werewolf.
Series are good, made well too, as one is to expect from Netflix Originals. There’s a lot of unique things, and a beautiful touch of old Slavic folklore, hinting towards Romania even. I do think they missed out on a lot, like Dragon Order, which they used by a fraction of what they could’ve done with it. Or the whole angel thing…
I’d give it 4 out of 5, since it wasn’t perfect, but definitely amusing enough to watch all three seasons.
