Editors' Spotlight

IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Enjoyable TV Movie
2 June 2001 | by (Bronxville, NY) – See all my reviews

Robyn Douglas is very good as a woman who wants to be judged on the merits of her work. The movie is a lot of fun except for Robert Culp who insists on being so unrealistic in one of his worst portrayals. Other than that, the movie is a lot of fun, and generally moves pretty quickly.
