“PENNY DREADFUL” Tease: Eva Green and the Demons Within


PENNY DREADFUL is an upcoming horror series from Showtime that takes its name from the thrilling, pulpy serials and Gothic novels of 1800s England. Thus, such is the setting for the show which aims to weave together classic macabre characters like Dorian Gray, Dr. Frankenstein and more, into one horror stew. Set to premiere this Spring 2014, the first visual teasers have debuted and the latest finds Eva Green under demonic influence, unwittingly praying to an upside down cross.

Writer John Logan and director Sam Mendes (who previously teamed on SKYFALL) are producing the series, while the first two episodes will be directed by THE ORPHANAGE’s J.A. Bayona. Green plays the series’ haunted heroine, Vanessa Ives. For more on the series, see an early featurette below.
