With the premiere of Penny Dreadful less than two weeks away, Showtime has made the premiere episode (“Night Work”) available online for all of you horror aficionados.

Penny Dreadful is a psychological thriller set in Victorian London that weaves together classic horror stories and their memorable characters into murder mystery drama. The series premiere, which you can watch here, follows explorer Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) and the strangely disarming Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) as they investigate the gruesome, supernatural murders plaguing the city.

According to the synopsis, “In search of someone close to them who has been lost, they recruit American sharp-shooter Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett)  and Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) to help them on their journey.”

Needless to say, you don’t want to watch this series without the lights on — unless you’re into blood, guts, and supernatural carnage, which is totally cool if that’s your thing. But we only made it five minutes before jumping out of our seats.
