So, this first trailer for Showtime's Penny Dreadful may not give away much about what to expect from the mysterious series, but it does give us a good look at what aesthetic producers seem to be going for in the series: A perfect mix of creepy and intriguing, as if American Horror Story: Asylum was mixed with Hostel, or something. Seriously, Eva Green stars and, even though she's just praying a lot during this entire promo, girlfriend looks rough. Something must be going down. Otherwise, someone should probably give her a hairbrush or maybe a cool washcloth for her forehead.
That said — there's still not much info available about the series, so I can't exactly tell you what's going on for sure. I'm positive that we're all good at analyzing trailers, though, so I can make a few assumptions based on what we see here: Green is praying a lot in fear, but, as we see when the camera pans to the wall, she's kneeling before a cross that's inverted — often a symbol of Satanic worshippers. Is Green's character possessed? Trying to hold on to her humanity? Worshipping Satan? It's not clear — but she does appear to growl at the end, which isn't a good sign.
Penny Dreadful is set to premiere on Showtime in 2014. Until then, you can check out the teaser below.
