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.

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...)

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

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

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.

Oooh! Some nice little additions since the last one.
I can count on less than one hand the number of shows I've given blind faith to over the years & I'm still psyched!
I'm like a Dreadful fanboy buried alive, scratching my fingers bloody up at the coffin door waiting to be released in May ::shrug::

WTF, TIM?!?! How DARE you! Posting a headline with the words "bloody" and "sexy"....inappropriate! AND a video clip! What if children should see this?! Poor, sweet, innocent angels, who only ever come to this site to check on their My Little Ponies fan page, and then have their little worlds destroyed because YOU insist on posting this SMUT here!!!! I insist, INSIST, that you immediately resign, pull down all your articles, and then stand in the corner and THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE DONE, MISTER!

I'm gonna be completely honest and say: 60% of the reason I want to watch this series isbecause of Eva Green, the other 40% is because the show might be fun.
