Carnival Row is Amazon’s latest original series. The dark fantasy show is a gruesome surprise that should be the perfect fit for horror fans.
I’ve been anticipating Carnival Row since the series was first announced. But I didn’t expect to love it as much as I do now. The dark fantasy series is surprisingly grim and packs more intestines than your average episode of The Walking Dead.
The story centers around Burgue, a city predominantly composed of human citizens but one that allows for the fae (non-human species) to live there in supposed harmony. Of course, racism is alive and well in Burgue. The humans have all types of slurs for the fae, which includes all sorts of creatures such as actual fairies and Puck (goat-like creatures).
