Penny Dreadful Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. They are joined by a core of original characters in a complex, frightening new narrative. Penny Dreadful is a psychological thriller filled with dark mystery and suspense, where personal demons from the past can be stronger than vampires, evil spirits and immortal beasts.

Brilliantly dark and twisted (in the good way) this series set in Victorian England pulls in all the monsters from all the classics. From vampires to possession. Maybe not one to watch just before going to bed

This is the type of creative, cinematic TV that I LOVE. I want to live in this world.

Reading all the articles on why season 3 concludes the show, I get it. I understand the feeling that once Vanessa's journey is over, that is it, poof, gone, done and bye bye. Eva Green did an outstanding job, one of the best acting performances on television I've ever seen. I get that her demise was inevitable. I'll accept that. What a shame to end the series though. I can come up with several ways to keep this show on for at least a total of eight or even ten seasons but alas, I don't have that kind of clout.

Tells the tales as they originally were...bloody, macabre and as real as they come. I love the gritty feel of it and how so many classics that I loved reading as a kid intertwine in this superb storyline. Yes it has some flaws but it makes them up in some of the best acting and twists.

I literally have no idea what is happening... But Josh Harnett is nice to look at and Rory Kinnear is just brilliant

Hands down the best horror/supernatural/period drama on TV right now. The cast is sublime, they gel so well together and the smallest of human interactions are portrayed in a beautiful way in amongst so much crazy messed up supernatural goings on. It's also one of the most beautifully shot pieces of TV I've come across. Truly a feast for the eyes.
