Prepare to be scared %&#%less.

Featuring Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the Dracula novel, the series — starring Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Billie Piper — is set in a familiar world “but we’re playing in it differently,” says Logan of the iconic creature-filled canvas.

    The first look has ensnared me!

  3. Tori says:

    I like what I just watched, this looks like what The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman movie should have been.

  4. Daisy says:

    I don’t really like to be scared but I love (and miss) Josh Hartnett. I guess I’ll be DVR’ing and watching during the day.

  5. sarah says:

    looks awesome
    i love shows like this

  6. yep says:

    I will watch it. Seeing that guy sitting in that guys lap and licking his nipple sure scared the hell out of me though.

  7. Derek Johnson says:

    Spooky, but I don’t get why Showtime wouldn’t wait until fall to air it. It is a horror show, and makes sense to air it around Halloween.

  8. The Beach says:

    Just yesterday a friend asked what ever happened to Josh Hartnett….mystery solved.

  9. Lea says:

    I love Reeve Carney! He’s such a sweet person! Very happy for him.

  10. Bob says:

    I’ll give it a try.

    The more I see about this show the more I get excited for it and I’ve been waiting for it for awhile
