Some of literature's most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Showtime's Penny Dreadful is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama starring Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett and Eva Green. The dark and richly textured Gothic score is by one of the most exciting new names in film music, Abel Korzeniowski.

"I started looking for an expression of dark beauty, something that can be terrifying and mesmerizing at the same time – a poisonous infatuation," said Korzeniowski. "The most inspiring clue I got was John Logan's [writer, producer] description of the character of Vanessa as the Mother of Evil. Seeing her not as a victim, but as a creature of a complex dual nature, both good and evil, was a defining moment for the entire musical score."

"The musical themes of Penny Dreadful represent both different characters and abstract ideas," Korzeniowski adds. "One of the most unusual for a gothic horror story is a group of themes related to Victor Frankenstein's offspring – Proteus and the Creature. They are the paragons of the modern age, or as the Creature puts it, ‘modernity personified'. Their music sounds more like an alternative/indie rock ballad than a classical score. The black-clad Creature, with his heavy make-up and pale skin, even looks like he could be in a band with Jack White."
