Hemlock Grove

Teens do some stuff in this werewolf-based television show, and they pretty much lost me at the word "teen". But then they suddenly got me again with the appearance of Lili Taylor, but they lost me again at the word "gypsy". Then they got me again with the inexplicable appearance of a gigantic girl with bandaged hands, but lost me again with Famke Janssen's transient and unconvincing British accent. Then they got me again with the entrails, and lost me again with the dialogue, the characters, and the storyline. Distractingly photographed to look like a spooky Hollister ad, Hemlock Grove comes off as Twilight meets Twin Peaks. I couldn't tell if Netflix was trying to scare me or sell me tank tops. They failed at both.
