Writing and Reviews – Denise Pasutti
Premiering May 11, 2014, Penny Dreadful brings together some of literature’s most famous and terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and figures from Dracula, and setting them together in the beauty and grit of Victorian London.
The Dreadful: Eva Green (Vanessa Ives); Josh Hartnett (Ethan Chandler); Timothy Dalton (Sir Malcolm); Rory Kinnear (The Creature); Helen McCrory (Madame Kali); Billie Piper (Brona Croft); Harry Treadaway (Dr. Victor Frankenstein)
This show looks awesome. The splendour mixed with the grim and degradation of Victorian London populated with all manner of evil characters that are up to no good. Wonderful.
Captivating characters (hopefully), rich and elegant sets and classic horror should pay off for 8 Victorian horror filled episodes. Stay tuned for full reviews after each episode.
