"Hemlock Grove" poster: biting the hand that reads you

Written by Maria Sciullo on .

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive new "Hemlock Grove" poster online today that takes the whole "werewolf within" concept to a new level. Hemlock Grove, an original series that will be delivered to Netflix subscribers online April 19, is based on Mon Valley native Brian McGreevy's goth novel of the same name.

Hemlockgrove2 270x400Set in a crumbling Western Pennsylvania town that has reinvented itself through the (somewhat mysterious) biotech industry, "Hemlock Grove" features a werewolf or two, vampires and a sweet-natured monster of a girl named Shelley.

The son and step-son of local Presbyterian ministers Beckie and George "Joey" Hickok -- he recalled, growing up, watching horror movies alone while his mom worked on sermons --McGreevy said in an interview last year that his family fully supports his creative dark vision.

"My mom thinks it's great," Mr. McGreevy said. "My parents were very, very supportive of a series of extremely nonconventional decisions I've made throughout my entire life. I owe a lot to growing up in that environment."

McGreevy also wrote the online series, which is being executive produced by Eli Roth and stars Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgard and Landon Liboiron.
