The first dreadfully dark teaser trailer for Showtime’s new upcoming horror series Penny Dreadful is here!

Meant to whet the appetite, the 16-second teaser offers small glimpses into the monsters that will populate the series.

The brand new horror show stars former Doctor Who companion Billie Piper as well as Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Reeve Carney and Helen McCrory.

Penny Dreadful is described as a “psychosexual horror series [that] features some of literature’s most frightening and iconic figures as they grapple with alienation in Victorian London.”

It'll intertwine the monstrous origins of such classic literary characters as Victor Frankenstein and his monster, Dracula, as well as Dorian Gray in an adult setting.

Filming on Penny Dreadful should start in October and will air sometime in 2014—will you be watching?
