If you’re a fan of Goth horror who was as disappointed in NBC’s “Dracula” as we were, then check out this new trailer that arrived for Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful.” Pretty much all we can say is, “Wow!” It looks like some fun and freaky good times are ahead indeed!
Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.
“Penny Dreadful” is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street’s Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, “Call the Midwife”). Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible) directs the first two episodes.
“Penny Dreadful” is set to premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th, at 10PM ET/PT. But if you’re attending the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, you can catch it early on Sunday, March 9, 2:00-3:00 PM at the Vimeo Theater, 201 Trinity.
Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. “PENNY DREADFUL” is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
