Sure, us horror fans may have shows like The Walking Dead, Supernatural and American Horror Story to watch on regular TV. But as far as premium channels such as HBO and Showtime go, there are very few choices when it comes to unedited horror programming, especially with the conclusion of Dexter and the last season of True Blood.
Thankfully, Showtime seems to have realized this, with their upcoming Victorian horror series Penny Dreadful. And the show revolves around characters from classic horror literature, such as Dracula, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray, which is awesome because I am a fan of all three novels. Hell, my cousin named his daughter Mina, after the signature character in Dracula.
The series premieres on May 11th and stars Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton. This is the recently released full-length trailer for Penny Dreadful, which can be watched below.
