A Netflix Original, Hemlock Grove has the horror kudos of Eli Roth behind it as executive producer. Based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name, it’s an intriguing play on ‘gothic’ with a little bit of Italian horror thrown in. Opening with the brutal murder of a cheerleader by an unknown person (or is it?), the series follows the strange characters of the fictional Pennsylvanian town including the mysterious and brooding Roman Godfrey (Bill Skarsgård – son of Stellan and brother of True Blood’s Alexander) and the rather hairy Peter Rumancek (Landon Liboiron), as well as leads by The Faculty’s Famke Janssen and Scottish actor Dougray Scott.

Teen angst meets psychic abilities, angels and transformations at full moon – it’s an absorbing series with two seasons currently available.
