There’s something lurking in the dark….and it looks a lot like Josh Hartnett..

Showtime is taking a stab at the supernatural horror genre this summer with its original new series, Penny Dreadful. Set in late 1800’s London, and staring Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, and Timothy Dalton, Penny Dreadful brings to life some of the most famous horror characters of that era. With this being a Showtime series, I’m sure we can expect plenty of blood, gore, and Victorian era sex to go along with our blood-curdling screams this summer. I don’t know about you, but count me in for any show that looks like a horror version of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of Showtime’s new series!!

Here is the official synopsis from Showtime.

Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.

Penny Dreadful premieres on Showtime May 11th, 2014
