‘Hemlock Grove’ Exclusive Red-Band Trailer: Watch Now!

Forget about Forks, and say bye-bye to Bon Temps. There's a new fictional town filled with sex and supernatural intrigue heading to TV this week, and it goes by the name of "Hemlock Grove."

On Friday (April 19), Netflix premieres the entire first season of "Hemlock Grove," the online streaming service's latest venture into the world of original programming. Based on a novel by Brian McGreevy and produced by "Hostel" mastermind Eli Roth, "Hemlock Grove" is a murder mystery set in a Pennsylvania steel town that holds more secrets and horrors than its rusty exterior would have you believe. As evidence of this, MTV News has an exclusive red-band trailer for "Hemlock Grove," but we warn you now — the following trailer is not safe for work, thanks to a healthy amount of mangled corpses and strategically placed F-bombs, and a liberal sprinkling of sexy-times.

Bill Skarsgård, brother of Alexander and son of Stellan, headlines the cast of "Hemlock Grove" as Roman Godfrey. The heir of the Godfrey estate takes it upon himself to investigate the murder of a young girl near his family's old steel mill. Rumors abound that the girl was killed by a wolf — and more rumors still suggest that gypsy teen Peter Rumancek (played by Landon Liboiron) is himself a werewolf. Whatever secrets he hides, Peter is at least game to join forces with Roman to find out who really killed the poor girl.

The new red-band trailer highlights Peter and Roman's shared journey, but also shows plenty of the other players crucial to "Hemlock Grove."

Snoop Calls Miley Cyrus ‘One Of The Greatest Musicians Of All Time’

Miley Cyrus' evolution is a work in progress, and she can add another ally to her star-studded support team. Snoop Dogg, who Reincarnated himself as reggae artist Snoop Lion after 21 years in the game, called Miley one of the "greatest musicians and personalities of all time."

On the red carpet for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Snoop shared that his new track featuring Cyrus, was such a good fit because both artists are turning over a new leaf, as it were.

"It's basically what we are both going through right now," he said, before introducing Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' performance at the main show (in a cloud of smoke, of course). "We're both going through transformation, we both love making music and doing what we do and speaking from our hearts, and it's just a great collaboration."

With lyrics such as "Now my buzz is gone and I need to re-up on reality/ Can't let them see me weak/ I need to pause on it/ Is there any possibility that everyone feels like me?" it seems like Miley is certainly going through some growing pains. The new song will be on Snoop's forthcoming album, though Miley has been in the studio working with everyone from Tyler, the Creator to Pharrell Williams on her next project as well.

Tha Doggfather had some fatherly love for Miley, who has taken a lot of heat recently. The press won't cut the girl a break over her allegedly rocky romance with fiancé Liam Hemsworth, but Snoop called himself a fan of ...

Macklemore ‘Grateful’ For Movie Awards, But C’Mon, ‘No Lifetime Achievement’?

Given the success of "Thrift Shop," Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are destined for the kind of stardom that eliminates the need to, well, be thrifty. But even after a showstopping performance of "Can't Hold Us" at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, the rapper told MTV's Josh Horowitz that the newfound fame he and partner Ryan Lewis have earned is still a little overwhelming.

When asked about his experience at the awards ceremony, Macklemore (whose real name is Ben Haggerty) seemed disappointed he didn't come away with a statuette. "No lifetime achievement award? It wasn't my year," he glumly joked. "But for the first time on a red carpet tonight and performing here, it was very surreal, man. I'm extremely grateful."

"It was a lot of fun," Macklemore confessed. "You know, it's one of those moments."

Horowitz' conversation with Macklemore was interrupted briefly when Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson walked by, still clad in her . Wilson offered her congratulations to the performer as she raced to her dressing room to get out of costume. "There's a river of sweat running down my legs," she disclosed. "This Iron Mangina suit is ridiculous. But great performance — it was really cool."

Thanks ...

Seth Rogen Made Zac Efron’s ‘Dream Come True’ On ‘Townies’ Set

We've seen sing-songy Zac Efron, serious Zac Efron and romantic Zac Efron. But funny Zac Efron — is that really a thing? Comedic authority Seth Rogen, co-star in the new film "The Townies," says Efron's latest turn will leave audiences impressed.

In the movie that Seth calls a "really dirty comedy," Zac plays a rowdy frat boy whose behavior interferes with Seth's life as a regular family man. MTV News stopped by the set during Sneak Peek Week and discovered that an impromptu shirtless scene seemed to provide quite the bonding experience for the two fellas. If Zac's getting a head start on campaigning for next year's Best Shirtless Performance Award, he clearly has Seth's vote.

"I had to stand shirtless next to Zac Efron all morning," Seth said. "He literally has the best body I've ever seen on a human being ever in my life. We literally had to write in to the scene that I couldn't keep eye contact with him 'cause I kept just like reaching out and touching his body like I was seeing some magical mirage or something like that."

See the happiest celebs at the MTV Movie Awards.

Oh yeah, Seth also mentioned that Zac was "hilarious" and "really funny" in the film. And Efron had high praise for Seth as well, but oddly enough, didn't seem quite as excited about shirtless Seth. After Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, where he may or may not have been assaulted by host Rebel Wilson, Zac said it was a "dream come true" to work with Seth ...

Karlie Kloss’ MTV Movie Awards Red-Carpet Gig, In Her Own Words

Karlie Kloss is an international supermodel and Victoria's Secret Angel, and on Sunday, the 20-year-old added another bullet point to her résumé when she served as red carpet host for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards pre-show. Karlie has walked plenty of red carpets, but the hosting role was a whole new world.

The pressure was on for the live show, but thankfully, she had veteran correspondent Josh Horowitz to help her through. MTV News caught up with Karlie after the show to learn all about her first time.

Josh was a big help. Josh Horowitz was my co-host, and he really carried me through, and so I was really lucky to have such talented people around me that I just had to stand there and try not to say anything controversial. And hopefully I did OK.

The biggest thing for prepping was just having fun with it and feeling confident, and we did enough rehearsing that it was a piece of cake by the time we finally got out there.

It didn't really hit me that it was going to be live for 30 minutes until I flew in to LA and got here and saw the red carpet and was like, "OK, what am I doing again and why did I sign up for this?" But it was a piece of cake, and when it comes down to it, that 30 minutes turns into such a small segment that you really have to be quick and efficient with your time, and that's something I learned too.
