Embrace Your Dark Side
Showtime’s Victorian horror, Penny Dreadful, returns this May. The excellent drama stars Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, and Josh Hartnett and focuses on occult and supernatural elements within London. It features classic literary charactes such as Frankenstein and Dorian Grey and has a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen feel. The first season’s villains were vampires and the second season focused on terrifying witches and their creepy voodoo dolls. It’s unclear what supernatural threat awaits our heroes this season, but I can’t wait.
If any picture can summarize perfectly summarize Penny Dreadful, it’s this poster. Unfortunately, this may be the show’s final season, but I’m still holding out hope. I need a great horror show to fill the Hannibal sized hole in my heart. Penny Dreadful adds Dr. Jekyll to the mix this year and premieres on Showtime on Sunday May 1st.
