There is a scene with a massive amount of rats where a character kicks a couple away to be able to walk.

This is contentious, but the film centres on psychological manipulation and techniques similar to gaslighting. Not in any specific relationship though.

There is a scene toward the end of the movie that involves one spouse killing the other.

It’s implied throughout that Teddy had a history of alcohol abuse while his wife was alive, post WW2.

Choking in a strangling scene where Teddy takes on a mentally ill patient of the ward, after the patient has escaped due to power outage.

Teddy spots a body in the water offside the cliff and assumes it to be his partner, however he cannot find it as he climbs to investigate. No such scene explicitly shown

The death of children and imagined depiction of child murder are frequently brought up throughout the film.

While not classic kidnapping, characters are insinuated as being violently held against their will. This could potentially be upsetting to those with this trigger.

There are no ‘ghosts’ per se, but a character routinely hallucinates people who are dead and bloody.

There is a scene where somebody is digging into their arm and using the blood to write on a wall, however the scene is very brief (1:10:53)

Characters are seen in incredibly small/dark spaces, which may bring on a sense of claustrophobia.

One character gets migraines, which are shown as bright flashes of light to illustrate his photosensitivity.

It's set in the 1950s, so there are outdated attitudes toward mental illness. Also, it includes some depictions of mental illness that are unrealistic in a way that could be offensive to some viewers.

World War II imagery is shown throughout a character’s memory flashbacks, including imagery from a concentration camp. Another character is referenced to have been a Nazi. Take care, as these scenes are somewhat graphic although relatively brief.

While nothing is shown, there are crass/crude explicit comments in some of the dialogue.

One patient talks about possibly exposing himself to another character without her consent, and describes how she secretly ‘wants’ it. None of this is shown or discussed beyond this brief conversation.

A car doesn’t crash, but one explodes without injuring anyone. This imagery may be startling for those with triggers involving car wrecks.

No nuclear explosion depicted, but characters talk about the horrors of the hydrogen bomb and war
