The Drama Desk Awards — commonly known as the theater world’s Golden Globes, though nominees are represented across all NYC productions in a season — are the last precursor to the Tony Awards (check EW.com tomorrow morning for a full list of those). And judging by the list below, it’s going to be quite a competitive year, with some pretty heavy-hitters mixed in with longshots, not to mention some major snubs (Alan Cumming, Cyndi Lauper, Fiona Shaw, Chaplin’s Rob McClure to name a few). The winners will be announced at NYC’s Town Hall on May 19. Below is »

Perhaps it’s when the young girl in a pristine white dress saws off her own devilish tail. Or maybe it’s when a pair of eyeballs plop onto the ground like bloody Ping-Pong balls during a human-to-werewolf evolution. Or even when a character mutters, “She looks like a walrus with a Uti.” Chances are, at some point during Netflix’s 13-episode series about mothers and sons, vampires and werewolves, murder and medicine, sex and…more sex, you’ll think to yourself: Is this campy good or campy bad?

At the foot of a sweeping grand staircase in the foyer of an imposing early 20th century mansion, Famke Janssen is stoically explaining what's going to happen next to Bill Skarsgard as he fights back tears.
The two are filming a scene of "Hemlock Grove," the epic new Netflix series helmed by horror-master Eli Roth. The show is based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name, and follows two teenage boys (Skarsgard and "Degrassi" alum Landon Liboiron) at the center of a murder mystery in a creepy small town full of supernatural elements.
Its horror-esque approach and broad mix of supernatural beings may sound a lot like "True Blood" (which stars Skarsgard's older brother Alexander), but "Hemlock" is carving its own path. "We started by casting an entirely different Skarsgard," jokes McGreevy, who serves as an executive producer on the show.
Janssen plays Skarsgard's mother, the matriarch of »

Scoot on over American Horror Story. Netflix is creating some scary competition with a new Gothic horror series titled Hemlock Grove. Let’s dissect the upcoming streaming series and take a gander at the trailer.
“The monster is within,” suggests the creepy, stylish teaser trailer for the new series. The horror/ thriller comes from the wicked mind of Eli Roth, the man also responsible for Hostel. The executive producer and former “Bear Jew” from Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds also directed the first episode of Hemlock Grove, which debuts with 13 episodes on April 19 on Netflix.
The show looks pretty good, don’t you think? The problem becomes trying to hold yourself back from watching too many episodes in one season and then completely running dry. I’ve already watched all 13 episodes of the Netflix political drama from David Fincher called House of Cards and I’m anxiously awaiting a second season of the dark comedy, »

The ordered, bucolic, rural New England existence of Internet entrepreneur Aaron (Joel de la Fuente) and his wife, Leah (Alexie Gilmore), starts to unravel when an old college classmate, Teddy (Scott Shepherd), shows up.
