PENNY DREADFUL, the upcoming psychosexual horror TV series created for Showtime by John Logan (Screenwriter of such works as Gladiator, Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, & Skyfall) and executive produced by Logan and Sam Mendes (Road To Perdition, Skyfall) released a short teaser following the series finale of DEXTER. The teaser asks if we believe in curses, demons, and monsters. The answer here at Backwoods Horror is a resounding HELL YES! Check it out after the break!

In the series, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London, weaving together the origins of such famous literary horror characters as they grapple with their monstrous alienation in Victorian London. YES, YES, & YES! I’m in already! The series will premiere in 2014.

PENNY DREADFUL will star Josh Hartnett as Ethan Chandler, a charming, brash, daring man of action who is unafraid of violence and more complicated than he likes to admit, the incredibly charming Eva Green as Vanessa Ives, an enigmatic, composed heroine who proves herself a force to be reckoned with, Billie Piper as Brona Croft, an Irish immigrant seeking to escape her dark past, Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcolm, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest, Reeve Carney as Dorian Gray, a confident, mesmerizing, yet somewhat isolated man, Harry Treadaway as Victor Frankenstein, Helen McCrory as Madame Kali, a spirtualist, Simon Russell Beale as Ferdinand Lyle, an eccentric Egyptologist, and Danny Sapani as Sembene, a longtime ally of Timothy Dalton’s Sir Malcolm.
