'Penny Dreadful': First full trailer does not skimp on the terror


The first full look at "Penny Dreadful" is here and, well, there's certainly more than a penny's worth of dread in the mix.

The upcoming Showtime series combines some of literature's most famously terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and Dracula, reimagining them in a new light and dropping them all in Victorian London.

Described as a "frightening psychosexual thriller," "Penny Dreadful" stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green -- and good amount of blood, it seems.

Check out the uber-creepy trailer above.

"Penny Dreadful" premieres May 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime. Will you be tuning in?
