This new series is refreshingly original; although vampirism and werewolves havenu0026#39;t exactly been underrepresented in movies and TV-shows over the last couple of years, u0026#39;Hemlock Groveu0026#39; manages to find a very interesting new approach and uses old European myths and legends – and even a bit of Sci-Fi – to inject some fresh blood into a genre that started to feel a bit stale. The mix is strangely compelling – and highly addictive.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cast is very strong, especially the two leads Bill Skarsgård and Landon Liboiron – and of course, the always great Famke Janssen. The production values are also worth mentioning: the music, the cinematography and the set-designs in this show are absolutely beautiful, the gory make-up effects look realistic and CGI is thankfully kept to a minimum. Iu0026#39;m a bit surprised this show hasnu0026#39;t found a bigger audience yet, given how well it is produced (and this wasnu0026#39;t exactly a cheap affair either: season 2 had a budget of 52 million dollars for 10 episodes), but maybe itu0026#39;s just a bit too original for that. As far as Iu0026#39;m concerned, u0026#39;Hemlock Groveu0026#39; certainly deserves to be seen; offering unique u0026#39;Horroru0026#39; with a fantastic, slightly surreal atmosphere and amazing images, this highly original series is a prime candidate for binge-watching. 8 stars out of 10.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFavorite films: Masterpieces: Low-Budget and B-movies: TV-Shows reviewed:”
