Friday Review: Hemlock Grove
I watched the Netflix Orignal Series, Hemlock Grove, and guess what? I loved it! No surprise there, huh? There were some bleh parts but overall I really enjoyed it. Without giving away too many spoilers, this is a horror series, plain and simple. Yes, it has werewolves. You can see that in the previews. But what's killer is the twist at the end. As you watch you know the Godfreys are evil, you just don't know what kind of evil. This series reminded me of movies like the Shining. It had that raw 70's feel to it that I found alluring. The story is about a teenager, Peter, who moves to the town of Hemlock Grove with his mom. His family are a bunch of gypsies and Peter, in particular, happens to be a werewolf. In a town where bizarre is the norm, Hemlock Grove is loaded with werewolves supposed-angels, demon-hunters, mystery, horror, sex, death and deception. Trust me the list freaks in this town goes on and on. Demented? Yes. Worth your time? Yes. Watch all 13 episodes of Netflix Original Series "Hemlock Grove" only on Netflix. The Monster Is Within. http://nflx.it/XkG5JC
Check out the trailer.
Since we're on the subject of werewolves, I had to post this. I found it on Pinterest and nearly wet my pants. #classic
The Healthy Writers Club
Shallee McArthur's meme, The Healthy Writers Club, is back! Since last month was A-Z, I missed a few HWC posts. So my workouts are going okay, except I hurt my leg somehow which makes running very difficult. I was trying some sprint conditioning and I think I strained a muscle. For the last two weeks I've done very little running. I hope it gets better. Ever strain a muscle like that before? Any suggestions to heal it? And don't say stop working out. I don't think I can do that now. Exercise is the only stress relief I have and I don't think I can give it up. Know what I mean?
Fridays with Fred
HeHe. There's my buddy, Fred. He's so tolerant of Spike these days. Every now and then he issues a bark, growl or snap to assert his dominance. Show 'em who's top dog, Fred! :)
Be sure and stop by and visit Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.
Have a wicked weekend. And be sure and call your mom!
