“Where is your master?” “Right behind you.” Penny Dreadful trailer!

Showtime's Penny DreadfulHere we have the first FULL trailer for Showtime’s upcoming supernatural horror series, Penny Dreadful.  The series stars Josh Hartnett (The Faculty, Sin City), Eva Green (Casino Royale, Dark Shadows), and Timothy Dalton (Flash Gordon, Hot Fuzz).

The series envisions a Victorian Era London in which Dracula, Dorian Grey, and Victor Frankenstein all exist.  Essentially, it sounds like the basic premise of Kim Newman’s novel Anno Dracula (which is a damned good read, by the way).

When all is said and done, this trailer oozes a dark style which certainly has me intrigued.  The series will premiere on May 11, 2014, and I am certainly interested in seeing what it is all about.  Take a look at the trailer here:
