Horror rather than fantasy genre - gory and graphic and disturbing

Having read this series of fantasy books myself as a teenager I was excited to see them brought to life on the screen, but I couldn't even make it through the second episode because it was so gory, creepy and graphically violent. The actors were great and some of the scenery stunning; I really wanted to be able to stick with it but it was too grotesque. For reference, I devoured the entire Game of Thrones series (another one not for kids) but this show was more like a horror movie in its adaptation than the original fantasy genre of the books.

This show is not for kids

It has sexualized nudity (two women in the bath kissing. It shows breasts), and is sexist because it shows more nude women than men (which is one male butt).
