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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Whoever seems to have foretold the ending has been watching too many movies. It is near Halloween and this is the type of movie I love. It was not too complex to follow and I loved the ending. I found several interesting tricks: Her sister recognizing her, her friends not recognizing her, her seeing her other self in the mirror, seeing her daughter from time to time. At the end she sees the news on TV of her "double" being taken off to jail and then cannot find the channel again. The idea of parallel lives was a nice touch. I love Thomas Gibson (of Dharma and Greg). The final scene where her daughter is saved was great.
