The new clip from the upcoming Netflix series Hemlock Grove shows the pain and suffering involved with becoming a werewolf.
The clip, which is entitled “The Monster Within,” recently made its debut at WonderCon. The video has been embedded below. If all you know about werewolves if what you’ve seen on TV and in PG-13 movies, then the latest clip from the show might come as a bit of a shock.
Instead of instantly morphing into the animal, the guy in this particular clip goes through a very painful and very violent transformation. Although not much can be said without ruining the surprise, it’s worth noting that the clip is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Hemlock Grove is from Cabin Fever and Hostel mastermind Eli Roth. The show is based on author Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name.
From the official press release:
“‘Hemlock Grove’ is a riveting one-hour murder mystery that revolves around the residents of a former Pennsylvania steel town. When 17-year-old Brooke Bluebell is brutally murdered, any of Hemlock’s peculiar inhabitants – or killer creatures – could be suspects. Through the investigation, the town’s seamier side is exposed, revealing nothing is what it seems. Beautiful, terrifying and graphic, ‘Hemlock Grove’ is unlike anything else in its genre.”
Netflix will unleash the entire season of Hemlock Grove to subscribers of its streaming service this April. The same format was used for the Kevin Spacey drama House of Cards. The fourth season of Arrested Development will also be released at once.
The company is also working The Maxtrix and Cloud Atlas directors Andy and Lana Wachowski on an upcoming science fiction series entitled Sense8. The show is expected to arrive on the streaming service towards the end of 2014.
The latest clip from the forthcoming series has been embedded below. Since the clip does contain quite a bit of graphic violence, viewer discretion is strong advised.
Executive producer Eli Roth’s Hemlock Grove stars Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell, and Freya Tingley. The series debuts exclusively on Netflix’s streaming service on April 19.
