FROM THIS EPISODE

Horror movie maker, Eli Roth and Hemlock Grove author Brian McGreevy on turning McGreevy's Gothic novel into a Netflix original series. They say working with Netflix gives them greater freedom in terms of violence, language and sexuality. They also embrace the Netflix plan to release all 13 episodes at once (due in January, 2013) which enables them to conceive of the series as a 13-hour movie and do long-form storytelling.

Plus, Eli Roth gives an articulate defense on why he's drawn to horror. Citing the influence of his psychoanalyst father and artist mother, he sees horror films as fairy tales for adults.
