Gore Hounds Rejoice. HEMLOCK GROVE Clip Reveals Bloody Brutality
Maybe Netflix really are the new kingmakers in TV-style series. After delivering the epic remake of BBC series House of Cards to hungry binge-viewing audiences in February, the streaming service is gearing up Hemlock Grove, its new supernatural show executive produced by Nazi hunter Eli Roth. 

And now we have a clip from the show, set to premiere on April 19, which shows just what having Roth on board a TV show looks like. Result: absolutely, shockingly, insane. Sure, the FX are TV-like in their realism, but hell, it works. I was left staggered. Check it out below.

One of the best werewolf transformation I've seen. Looking forward to see this show!

I think this looks total shit. That CGI is AWFUL. Only thing I like about it is the wolf eating the shed skin at the end.

Hah. I did say the FX were TV level, (by which I meant a notch or two above Buffy). What got me was the disgustingness of it all.

The CGI is superb. It's not realistic in the least, but it's not meant to be. It's an artful blend of makeup and Asian-film-flavored CGI that is definitely effective. The whole sequence is well rendered - no shortcuts where we see a burst of whirling amorphous CGI and then voila! the change is over. This here is how CGI on a budget should always be done. Golf clap.

Superb, my ass. The lighting and texturing on it is horrible. I've seen student work that is far, far better than this so you can't even put it down to budget. It's just a shoddy job.
