Ever curious what will happen if some of the most terrifying villains in literature appear in one TV series? That's what you'll expect in Penny Dreadful. This British-American psychological thriller created by John Logan centers on some of the scariest fictional characters like Frankenstein from Mary Shelly's novel, Count Dracula, Abraham Van Helsing, John Seward, Mina Harker, and more from Bram Stoker's Dracula, Henry Jekyll from Robert Louis Stevenson's novella, and so on. And these villains are no ordinary villains since they'll be coming together and lurk around in Victorian London.
Also popularly known as the classic pirate's story, Black Sails takes place twenty years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island took place. This means that it is created to be a prequel, and this is set on New Providence Island in 1715, in the midst of the pirate age and during the wars between England and Spain for the Caribbean Sea. This also centers on the journey of Captain Flint, a brilliant and most feared pirate of his time. In this series, another highlight is the pirate's story to another level of violence, sex, and grittiness. Created by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine for Starz, this historical adventure has four stellar seasons.
With how novels set the bar high, it's kinda hard for adaptations to keep up. But Hulu did it well with its adaptation of Margaret Atwood's novel. It is set in the future where America is under a theocratic rule that forces fertile women to be impregnated by men from wealthy families.
