"'Hemlock Grove' is unlike anything else in its genre,"  Ted Sarandos, Netflix's Chief Content Officer, promises. "It's sexy, gripping, emotional and twisted, and we're certain viewers are going to be captivated by its intensity."

The one-hour murder mystery revolves around eccentric residents of a dilapidated former Pennsylvania steel town, where the death of a 17-year-old girl prompts a homicide investigation that will expose the area's seamier side -- presumably consisting of sex, murder and monsters.

Famke Janssen ("X-Men") and Dougray Scott ("Mission: Impossible II") star alongside younger faces like Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron, Penelope Mitchell and Freya Tingley.
