Watch Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’ Teaser Trailer

Penny Dreadful

We all have our demons.

Still, chances are ours aren’t as warped as Dr. Frankenstein’s, Dorian Gray’s or the ones inflicting the “Dracula” characters.

Showtime’s teaser trailer for John Logan’s “Penny Dreadful” about these twisted literary figures hints at these problems with enough Jesus and occult references to make it feel as if  “American Horror Story: Asylum” were set in Victorian England.

The “psychosexual thriller” stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton and is produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions and Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris of Neal Street. “The Orphanage’s” Juan Antonio Bayona helmed the first two episodes.

The series will bow this spring, although no exact release date has been announced.
