Something wicked dreadful this way comes...
Horror fans will be happy to hear that Showtime is making its brand new supernatural series 'Penny Dreadful' available to the public a little earlier than previously expected. Interested fans can now watch the premiere immediately on YouTube, rather than waiting for its official debut on May 11, which undoubtedly will be just as twisted and haunting as the trailers suggest. (Here's hoping there will be a little more dialogue though.)

Created by John Logan and executive produced by Sam Mendes, ‘Penny Dreadful’ is set way back in 1890s Victorian London where infamous gothic characters such as Dorian Gray and Frankenstein dwell, along with vampires, demons, and numerous other evil creatures from the beyond. (So clearly, this is not the ideal spot to take a vacation. You know, unless you’re into that sort of thing.)
Eva Green portrays the female lead Vanessa Ives, while Josh Hartnett will take on the role of Ethan Chandler. Other cast members include Timothy Dalton, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory, and 'Doctor Who's Billie Piper.
