L.A. gets spooky in this new trailer for Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels

We saw a teaser for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful sequel series City Of Angels

earlier this year , with a demonic Natalie Dormer stoking the fires of a war for the soul of Los Angeles—and also maybe all of humanity—but there’s a neat trick in this new trailer.
