The Midnight Society loves a good creepy movie, so when I first saw the preview for the new Showtime Original Series Penny Dreadful, I knew I had to share.
The geniuses behind the show have taken the dark and twisted characters from classic tales like Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and Dracula. Set in Victorian London, this series looks like it will bring on the creepy darkness of all our favorite horror characters–with a huge twist. I have a feeling this series will be a huge hit!
Harry Treadaway, plays Dr. Victor Frankenstein–he needs no introduction.
Reeve Carney, plays the dark and dangerous Dorian Gray.
Billie Piper, plays Brona Croft, a poor Irish immigrant who forms a bond with Ethan.
Timothy Dalton, plays Sir Malcolm, an African explorer.
Danny Sapani, plays Semebene, an African man serving as Sir Malcolm’s confidant.
Eva Green, plays Vanessa Ives, who is an expert medium.
Josh Hartnett, plays Ethan Chandler, an American with a dark past.
Anyone else excited to see how this series holds up? Even if it’s only to watch Josh Hartnett, I’m in:)
Josh Harnett!! I haven’t seen him in forever!
I’ve only seen vague previews of this. I thought it seemed too gory, but I watch True Blood, can’t be worse than that. I had no idea what it was about though. I put a reminder in my phone to tape this as soon as I read this! Thanks for the indepth look!
Awesome Krystal! I wish I’d seen previews for this! I would have been all over them. Let me know how you like it!
But I don’t have Showtime! *cries* And I LOVE Dorian Gray … one of my favorite books!
I love Dorian Gray too! I don’t have Showtime either but I’ll find a new friend if I have to! 😛
ooooh! I hadn’t heard of this. I’m in!
I completely agree Faith! Sounds awesome!
