* [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's]] Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights has done this plenty of times, most notably in 2007 with the "Carnival of Carnage" theme, where the event's main icon, Jack the Clown, rounds up his own band of sideshow freaks and creates a horribly demented midway. He would later do this horror carnival again in 2015, the event's 25th anniversary.

* ''Anime/ChargemanKen'': As the episode's title implies, the circus in "The Devil's Circus" is ''not'' a good one. It's actually [[spoiler:led by Jurals who disguise themselves as circus performers to kill Ken.]] At one point, they even unleash [[spoiler:the lions]] upon the audience!

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters 2'', features all kinds of nightmareish characters in the Circus of Fear theme, like cannibalistic clowns, saimese twins that are treated as separate characters by the game, and a lion tamer who brainwashed himself into becoming a lion.

* ''Dumbo's Circus'', a popular puppet show on the DisneyChannel in the 1980s, had a HalloweenEpisode whose climax was the musical number "The Day the Spooky Circus Came to Town" (with a bass line, believe it or not, filched straight from Music/MichaelJackson's ''Music/{{Thriller}}''). Somewhat ironically, the {{Aesop}} of the episode was to teach kids to ''not'' be afraid of Halloween (or circuses, for that matter).

Overnight, the circus came to town. But something's wrong -- ''very'' wrong. The [[RepulsiveRingmaster ringmaster]] is abusing the animals and performers, the circus music, which should be cheerful, [[CreepyCircusMusic seems menacing]]. The attractions (especially TheFreakShow) seem off, the cotton candy is a sickly shade of green, the [[KnifeThrowingAct knife thrower]] ''doesn't miss'', and the [[MonsterClown clowns]]...well, the less said about the clowns the better.

* Ringling Brothers Circus is infamous for animal cruelty, [[VillainWithGoodPublicity though they try to hid it]] from the public. They hire people with criminal records to [[TrainingFromHell "Train"]] animals and even work with the Exotic Animal Trade to get new animals.

** It actually makes it worse: music that is so bad that even the undead can't stand to hear it.
