All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Sumptuous and atmospheric - the superb production values, impressive cast and gorgeous framing make Penny Dreadful extremely beautiful to look at, with the language -- particularly Russell Beale's -- an absolute treat.

Penny Dreadful ended when it should and we are glad it did so well. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Too many characters were brought in only to be wasted.

"Penny Dreadful" isn't just good. It's scary good, maintaining its place at the top of the horror heap.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The show's sheer density of characters isn't in service of anything except its own story. Instead, it updates and combines its characters as it sees fit.

Aug 14, 2017 | Full Review…

A lush, florid atmosphere that feels fresh, provocative and organically adorned with enough sex and violence to fit right in on pay cable.

At the start of its third season, the series, guided by creator John Logan, remains as passionate as ever about its characters and their unique circumstances.

Dreadful's Season 3 premiere, was a hell of a ride. Doing what this show does best which is exploring the beauty and poetry behind gothic horror with dialogue that both renders plot and reveals heart.

May 2, 2016 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Penny Dreadful's set work is unparalleled, and this season the bright oranges and yellows of the Old West make for a welcome contrast to the washed-out blues and grays of Old London.

Throats will be slit. Bodices will indeed be ripped. The dead will rise again. And assuming the payoff for all these tantalizing but occasionally frustrating early separations arrives in time, Penny Dreadful should remain bloody good fun.
