Watch the Bloody and Sexy New Trailer for Showtime's Penny Dreadful (VIDEO)

If you haven't heard, creepy horror is so in right now. Blood? That's in, too. And as long as we have eyes, ears, and private parts, sex will never not be in. All three of those elements are present by the bucketload in this new trailer for Showtime's upcoming drama Penny Dreadful, which looks like the pay cable network's answer to FX's American Horror Story. But with more sex. 

For those who aren't familiar with the show's premise, Penny Dreadful combines several legends from literary horror, including Dorian Gray, Frankenstein and his monster, and Dracula, as they're treated like monsters in Victorian-era London. Also, as we saw in the first trailer for the series that Showtime released last month, some of the characters appear to double as weird spider people, too! 

Penny Dreadful stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinear, and Timothy Dalton. How do you think it looks?

Penny Dreadful premieres Sunday, May 11 at 10pm on Showtime.

  • sleepy-sonic Feb 15, 2014

    A show with Eva Green and Billie Piper is a sure thing for me.

  • Azaron Feb 15, 2014

    Yep, I'm sold as well.

    Sounds and looks deliciously creepy and with a good dose of attractive well lit nudity which is not an unwelcome ingredient in this creepy potion of a show... If the writing is good & combines those terror classics appropriately, Penny Dreadful could be a hit for Showtime. Eva Green is just perfect in this temptress / dominatrix / fanatic role as she was in Dark Shadows, a very underrated film (in my opinion...)

  • J_Pip Feb 15, 2014

    You had me at Showtime's American Horror Story.
    Also, Eva Green scares me.

  • ludoTV Feb 15, 2014

    So true! She was awesomely scary in Dark Shadows!

  • Azaron Feb 15, 2014

    Yep. I quite liked her on Camelot as well.
    She's very good at playing a sexy villainess.

    Give it a shot anyway, but by the look of the trailer it looks like it has the potential to turn into gay porn like true blood did

  • AndreaMcCooey Feb 15, 2014

    Looks good, but god damn, I hate spiders!!!

  • Draconax Feb 15, 2014

    Man it's been so long since I've seen Josh Hartnett in anything. It will be good to see him again.

  • Sanity_Bleeds Feb 15, 2014

    I don't currently have video evidence to support it, but I'm pretty positive Eva Green could make washing lettuce look sexy and intriguing.
