New image from Showtime's Penny Dreadful

Yesterday we brought you the second teaser for Showtime's upcoming psychosexual horror series "Penny Dreadful" and today we have a new image to share with you.

The image comes from EW, who also chatted with series creator John Logan, who says he drew inspiration from 1940s monster mash-up movies, telling the site...

“I thought there was incredible excitement to slamming all those myths together... It’s highly erotic, very bloody. It’s about building a family... Admittedly, the creepiest family you can imagine.”

“When I was first talking to [executive producer] Sam Mendes about it, the word I came up with was 'disturbing',” says Logan. “It’s not enough to scare people because that’s a cheaper sensation. But to unsettle and disturb people on a deeper level because they feel familiarity with monstrous characters is really our goal.”

"Penny Dreadful" stars Eva Green, Harry Treadaway, Josh Hartnett, Billie Piper, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear and Timothy Dalton. It begins airing in the Spring.  Check out the newest image below.

Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.
