When we first broke the story about Eva Green and Josh Hartnett joining Sam Mendes’s Penny Dreadful, we were already pretty hopeful. Now after watching the teaser, we’re just plain creeped out. In the first teaser, we get acquainted to all manner of bogeymen who could care less about age. They just want to get you.
Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula –are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
