Penny Dreadful

Penny Dreadful



In Penny Dreadful, 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. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation. This project marks Logan and Mendes' second major collaboration, following Skyfall, their recent critically-acclaimed and box office record-breaking James Bond film, which Mendes directed and Logan co-wrote; and their first ever collaboration for television. The project will be produced by Mendes' production company Neal Street Productions.

It's like they tried to lay X-Men or Heroes over a combo Frankenstein, Dracula and whatever else. Horrid show. Maybe if I hadn't just watched 2 seasons of HBO's Carnivale after it was released on Amazon Prime, I wouldn't have been spoiled by something of quality. They managed to combine characters with different powers and make an engaging show, Penny Dreadful doesn't even try :-( Watch Carnivale, you'll see ;-) Read more
