To celebrate the home release of Season One of PENNY DREADFUL on 13th October 2014 in the UK, we’ve three DVD and book bundles to give away to our readers!
From Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution, the Blu-ray and DVD collections will include every episode of the series’ first season, celebrated by critics as ‘a real contender for any “best TV of 2014” list’ (The Guardian) and a ‘surprisingly moving and poetic gothic fright fest’ (IGN). Both Blu-ray and DVD collections also boast extensive special features that delve into the gripping thriller.
From three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Skyfall, Hugo, Gladiator) and Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall), PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychosexual drama that weaves together classic horror origin stories into a gripping series that is moody, mystical and wonderfully twisted.
PENNY DREADFUL, starring Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights) and Eva Green (Casino), completely reinvents literature’s most famous characters. Icons of terror such as Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul – even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.
The series also stars Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Danny Sapani (The Bill) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger). A co-production of Sky Atlantic, PENNY DREADFUL was created, written and executive produced by John Logan and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street.
PENNY DREADFUL – SEASON ONE includes the first eight episodes of the series as a three-disc collection. The Blu-ray Disc is presented in 1080p high definition with English TrueHD 5.1, and Spanish 2.0 Stereo with English subtitles and English SDH.
