‘Penny Dreadful’ (Showtime) Teaser: Zombies or Monsters?

“I mean that place where science and superstition walk hand in hand…”

Penny Dreadful is all gothic horror in the latest trailer in which a scientist (Dr. Frankenstein, perhaps?) discuess science, the supernatural and possibly his own violent creations. Featuring nothing more than a dank, gray chamber with a floor stained with blood, the teaser hints at a monster on the loose. Is it a zombie? A horrible human experiment gone wrong? It’s hard to say, but Penny Dreadful is certainly creating a dark, moody atmosphere that makes me want to find out.

No release date for the series has been set yet, but it will air this Spring 2014 on Showtime.
