The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hemlock Groove (2013)

Starring: Famke Janssen, Lili Taylor, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Dougray ScottPenelope Mitchell, Kandyse McClure, Freya Tingley, Aaron Douglass

A girl is mutilated in a small town where speculation turns to the gypsy kid and his mother who only just arrived with rumors of being a werewolf. He makes friends with the son of the wealthiest family in town, who can control people's mind, to track down the killer.

My Take:
I still dont really know what to make of this series. It is engaging and interesting and frustrating and confusing. Each episode hooked me enough to get to the next but at the conclusion I was rather bewildered at how it wrapped up and where it may go if there is a season two. There's a girl who thinks an angel got her pregnant, secrets surrounding the wealthy family, crazy experiments done by their company's head doctor, a werewolf hunter arriving in town, a deformed and monstrous girl (who is the daughter of the wealthy family) and plenty of other side stories to keep one intertested...or baffled.

Rating: In the middle
