‘Penny Dreadful’ (Showtime) Teaser Reveals “A Place in the Shadows”

Vampires, werewolves and back-bending monsters, oh my!

Showtime is going all in on the horror tropes with their upcoming Victorian England set drama Penny Dreadful. The first significant teaser takes us to a “place in the shadows” where all manner of ghouls and monsters lurk. The dark ideas are a perfect fit for the dreary, atmospheric setting, and it’s fun to play spot the classic horror story characters. Check out the teaser below. If you were Josh Hartnett would you accept Eva Green’s veiled invitation to join the dark side?

Penny Dreadful premieres Sunday, May 11 at 10PM ET/PT on Showtime.
