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.

With the premiere of THE PENNY DREADFUL PICTURE SHOW happening at the Fright Night Film Festival, I was provided with information by Picture Show star Devanny Pinn to share with all of us who are unable to make the screening. And let me just tell, I wish I was in Louisville, Kentucky tonight because this film looks amazing!

Devanny Pinn did not disclose full details on this film, but she gave me enough information to hopefully entice an audience into attending any future screenings. First and foremost, she shared with me the absolutely amazing cast that headline this horror flick. The Penny Dreadful Picture Show will star Sid Haig (Devil’s Rejects), Jeffery Combs (Re-animator), Devanny Pinn (Nude Nuns With Big Guns), Josh Hammond (Jeepers Creepers 2), and Eliza Swenson as the title character Penny Dreadful.
