Storyline

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in "Carnival Row," a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose rich homelands were invaded by the empires of man. This growing immigrant population struggles to coexist with humans in the grimiest section of the city -- forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate, and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society. Vignette harbors a secret that endangers Philo's standing during his most important case yet: a string of gruesome murders threatening the uneasy peace of the Row. As Philo investigates, he reveals a monster no one could imagine. Written by Amazon Studios

Romantic-Horror-Murder-Mystery-Fantasy-Steampunk Extravaganza!
2 September 2019 | by piersonacSee all my reviews

This is one of those shows that hooks you from the start and you just can't let go until you reach the end, craving more. Cara Delevine holds her own and is the blatant hammer to Orlando Bloom's quietly simmering tortured soul. Their chemistry is electric which makes their connection believable and rich in layers of regret, pining, and deep love. A lot of the twists were obvious, but I didn't care because the journey to the answers was just so damn cool. There is some heavy language, nudity, and violence, but it is not gratuitous and just adds the fudge topping to this unique take on a "what if" dimension. The make up work and CGI are almost flawless. The horns on the pucks looked so real and great care was taken to avoid the prosthetic "wobbling" that sometimes happens with such large head attachments, which a sci-fi nerd like me really appreciated. Give this one a go if you are into fantasy and murder mystery. It is a delicious marriage of the two.
