'Penny Dreadful' Trailer Makes Showtime's New Horror Show Look Gruesomely Good

Posted: Updated:

The first full trailer for "Penny Dreadful" is straight-up terrifying. Showtime announced the new psychosexual horror show starring Josh Hartnett at the TCA winter press tour and revealed a short clip.

But the new trailer, released Friday (Feb. 14), shows more of what's in store when "Penny Dreadful" premieres in May. The show follows some of literature's most terrifying characters -- Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray -- in Victorian London. Based on the full-length trailer below, we can expect lots of skin clawing, tense sex scenes, scary bugs and demonic eye rolling. Beware.

"Penny Dreadful" premieres Sunday, May 11 at 10 p.m. EST on Showtime.
