Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’ Trailer: NSFW Psychosexual Horror Drama Asks “Where is Your Master?”
Back in January we got our first real look at Showtime’s forthcoming “psychosexual” monster mash ‘Penny Dreadful, though nothing quite as revealing as the sizzle reel presented at the TCA tour. Now, as if Valentine’s Day hadn’t gotten enough blood pumping, we’ve got the full trailer for Josh Hartnett and ‘300‘ star Eva Green‘s sexy and spectacularly bloody ‘Penny Dreadful’!
The full-length trailer begins exactly as the original spot, showing a cryptic card session with Josh Hartnett’s Ethan Chandler and Eva Green’s mysterious Vanessa, but the extended footage puts on ample display all the blood and nightmarish creatures to be featured when the series premieres May 11. We’re talking vampires, spiders crawling on crucifixes, bisexual orgies, crab-walking, the works!
In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.
In addition to Green and Hartnett’s characters, the series stars Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcolm, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest; Reeve Carney as Dorian Grey; Helen McCrory as spiritualist Madame Kali; ‘Skyfall”s Rory Kinnear; and ‘Doctor Who‘ vet Billie Piper as an Irish immigrant seeking to escape her dark past.
