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.
