Roth created the Hostel horror franchise, directed and produced several major motion pictures as well as appearing in several films, including the role of Sgt. Donny Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino’s critically-acclaimed Inglourious Basterds.
“Hemlock Grove” starts with the body of a young girl murdered in the shadow of the former Godfrey steel mill. Some suspect an escapee from a biotech facility owned by the former steel magnates. Others believe the killer could be a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, who tells classmates he's a werewolf. Or it could be Roman (Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Famke Janssen), is the otherworldly beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.
