‘Penny Dreadful’ Teaser Goes Demonic

Showtime’s upcoming new series Penny Dreadful isn’t wasting any time getting creepy.

The first teaser for the monster mash-up drama features a woman down on her knees praying in front of a crucifix. Things go pear shaped from there as her futile prayers give way to some good old-fashioned demon possession. (Why does it always have to be demon possession?) Check out the spine-tingling teaser below and prepare to have some Exorcism flashbacks. Were you as creeped out as I was?

The series stars Josh Hartnett (Pearl Harbor), Eva Green (Casino Royale) and Billie Piper (Doctor Who).

Penny Dreadful premieres Spring 2014 on Showtime.
