Showtime's Extended Penny Dreadful Trailer Is Not For the Easily Spooked

Helpful tip: Watch this extended trailer for Showtime’s upcoming Penny Dreadful with the lights on… and maybe not so soon after you’ve eaten.

Because once you press PLAY on the video below, you’ll be subjected to bugs, blood, monsters, nudity, severed limbs, group sex, blood, severe creepiness (in a good way), contorted bodies, at least two Bond alumni and more blood.

Penny Dreadful premieres on Sunday, May 11 at 10/9c.

    It looks like American Horror Story on Steroids!
    And I, for one, cannot wait!

  2. Kate says:

    That was oddly boring.

  3. After three seasons of AHS, there’s really little that Ryan Murphy can do to actually scare audiences. And let’s be honest, Coven wasn’t *scary*, it was just an entertaining blood bath.

    So this looks like a fresh perspective on the genre, while also creepy and scary.

  4. Kaycee says:

    Penny Dreadful, one full trailer and already scaring audiences more than three seasons of AHS..

  5. Emily says:

    Billie Piper is also in this!

  6. CourtTV says:

    I have no desire to see this.

  7. Olivia says:

    I can’t wait to watch this. Since I’ve read about the project I’ve been super excited!

  8. was that supposed to dracula at the end?

  9. Sarahliz says:

    What was so scary about this?

  10. Steve says:

    I’m all over this one. My type of show.

  11. Autumn says:

    I still want to see this but it might be too gross for me…

  12. Brennan says:

    I wish the trailer featured more Billie Piper… She’s the reason I’m sort of interested in this.

  13. Ani says:

    The trailer looks gorgeous…reminds me a bit of hannibal, with its mix of bloody gore and stunning visuals.
