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.

A most wonderful show indeed! Takes you back to a time you never knew about and you LIVE it! The Characters are dynamic and the dialogue is simply amazing!

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

I'm sad to see this show go. It was one of a kind. The way they captured the period, and how they showed respect to famous horror characters from the past. Very well done. Worth re-watching again and again.

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.

Frightfully dark gothic period-series set in Victorian London. Good amount of scares in season 1, after a while the story becomes a bit forced introducing all the monsters. Eva Green is great tho!

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.
