21 of 21Penny Dreadful (Showtime)
With American Horror Story and Hannibal, television has been embracing more psychologically disturbing stories, and Showtime's new series takes it a step further... by traveling back in time to the heyday of gothic horror: The Victorian Era . Penny Dreadful's highbrow approach to horror combines the characters from Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula and other horror classics into one show, and does them justice with visually arresting production and talent the likes of Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Doctor Who alum Billie Piper. The show premieres on Showtime in May.
