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.

A tidbit from an insider..
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was an extra in this film. They just used me for one day..a scene shot in the Sheldon theater.

It was a great 13 hour day.

What an experience! Faye Dunaway was a mess...could not remember her lines for anything.

We all knew them and were shouting them at her.

She wasn't happy with that. Loved the movie...of course!

St.Louis was the main shooting spot for this film and i think everything turned out great!

I was one of the many women sitting in that hot room with period piece hairstyles, chanting "Our bodies belong to us...our bodies belong to us!"

I had to buy this on DVD.

It was hard to find, but well worth it!
