First ‘Penny Dreadful’ Trailer Teases A Place in the Shadows

television-tv-news-and-talkShowtime has released the first trailer for their upcoming Victorian horror-esque series, Penny Dreadful. The series will weave together the origins of famous literary horror characters, such as Victor Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s monster, Dorian Gray, and Count Dracula, in Victorian London.

This looks like it will be worthwhile, a bit on the freaky side, but interesting. Penny Dreadful stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Billy Piper, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear and Harry Treadaway, and is due to premiere on Sunday, May 11th at 10pm EST on Showtime.
