    Default Penny Dreadful - Join the demimonde! (spoilers about)



    Set in 1891, some of literature's most terrifying characters including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama. Starring Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Billie Piper.

    I'm really looking forward to this show! Are any of you going to be watching it with me?

    This threw me. "Penny Dreadful" must mean something somewhere, because that was the name used for a B-rated Afterdark horror movie, and it was not the equivalent of League of Extraordinary Gentleman: The Villains. Though it's an interesting concept

    Whoa, great find. Makes me question the motives behind naming the horror movie this, then. Makes no sense from that perspective lol But thanks for the research nonetheless

    It wasn't really research, I knew about them beforehand. xD Linking to wikipedia is just easier than using my own words. But you're welcome. :3

    Looks kinda cool and kinda cheap. I'll definitely give it a try to see how it measures up to AHS.

    I think this behind the scenes video gives a pretty good feel for the show and what it's about.

    The song is from Mass Effect in that hahahahaha omg. It was from mass effect. I'm such a soundtrack nerd. Just take out the reaper noises.

    OMG I MUST LOVE THIS SHOW. IT'S IN THE MUSIC. Start at 1:00 of that trailer behind the scenes you posted then listen to this



    Seriously, listen to it. My obsession with soundtracks paid off.

    I've been waiting for it to come out! The fact that it's being directed by the guy who did The Orphanage is awesome
