Latest 'Penny Dreadful' Trailer Shows Classical Literature's Terrifying Side

Horror fans looking for a fright need to check out the latest trailer for "Penny Dreadful." The Showtime series has its roots in classic thriller literature and features long-time loved/feared monsters such as Dracula, Dorian Gray and Frankenstein (and his monster).

Fittingly, the show's latest trailer is a narration of passages from Bram Stoker's "Dracula," accompanied by a gruesome visual in which the book's pages, which seem to be made of human skin, are stitched together.

This all seems pretty horrifying, but the cast of "Penny Dreadful" is anything but. The series stars such well known actors as Josh Hartnett (Ethan Chandler), Eva Green (Vanessa Ives) and Billie Piper (Brona Croft), among others. Whether you're a fan of "American Horror Story" or just looking for a good scare, you'll want to stay tuned.

"Penny Dreadful" premieres May 11 on Showtime.
