First full Penny Dreadful trailer

Trailer Louisa Mellor 17 Feb 2014 - 06:38

Victorian-set psycho-sexual horror, Penny Dreadful, starring Eva Green, Billie Piper and Josh Hartnett has its first full trailer...

Looking like a glossy, VIP tour of London Dungeons and attempting to topple American Horror Story's crown for TV's spookiest and most twisted US drama is Penny Dreadful, written by John Logan and produced by Sam Mendes. 

The horror-thriller deposits characters from nineteenth century Gothic literature (you've got your Draculas, your Dorian Gray, your Frankenstein's monster and so on) into a slinky world of sex and - by the looks of this trailer - zombies doing yoga.

It's due on Showtime in the US on the 11th of May and stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and our own Billie Piper. Enjoy the trailer below.

Looks totally awesome! I very much expect this show to kick all kinds of arse.

Looks a lot better than the 'aren't we a scary series' American Horror Story.

Shouldn't that be 'our very own Eva Green and Billie Piper', as Green is English too?

Eva Green is french

American Horror Story, meet British Horror Story! (this looks amazing and even more scary!)

BTW - i would advertise Timothy Dalton's name above Billie Piper's - just saying
