There was one extraordinary theater, where Penny Dreadful and her two "strange" friends are watching different unusual movies. In these films moviegoers may see a lot of blood, killers and maniacs and little romance and sex. There is a whole world full of terrible fantastic characters, including famous Victor Frankenstein with his legendary scary creatures, Doran Gray, and Count Dracula - they all really exist, live in isolation from humanity because of monstrous natures and aspirations.
This is description of thriller just in "two words", although, for the mix, there are other human characters, such as Vanessa IvÐµs (Green), Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), and Ethan Chandler (Hartnet). They are trying to find and pursue the demons and other nocturnal creatures, which are haunting and doing their terrible things under the cover of dark night. While Frankenstein hard works, stitching corpses together, Dracula is out for bloodâ€¦
Undoubtedly, thriller "Penny Dreadful" is one of the most exciting, popular and interesting movie in 2014.
