Penny Dreadful

It looks like Showtime’s upcoming horror series “Penny Dreadful,” in which classic horror characters roam the streets of Victorian London, will live up to its ominous name.

A new teaser, posted on FearNet, offers a look at what viewers can expect– think “Frankenstein”-like stitches — from the thriller series created by writer John Logan (“Sweeney Todd,” “Hugo”) and exec produced by him, Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris.

“Penny Dreadful,” starring  Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green, premieres at 10 p.m. May 11.
