Showtime has released a full trailer for their awesome-looking new psychosexual horror series, Penny Dreadful. I love this kind of stuff, especially when it's done well. The show revolves around some of literature's most terrifying characters, such as Dorian Gray, Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula. The show is set in Victorian London, and it "weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation."
It stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Harry Treadaway. The series is set to premiere on May 11th, and it definitely looks like one that will be worth watching.
