There's a scene in which Ponyboy is dreaming and there's a sudden loud train crashing into a car. It's not intended to be a jumpscare but can be startling. About 30 minutes into the movie.

It's only seen for about 2-3 seconds, but when Dally is in the hospital bed, he gets the knife from Two-Bit and makes 2 cuts on his arm, nothing graphic though. It doesn't show him doing it, just afterwards.

It’s not big and you have to really listen to hear it because there’s a fire roaring over it but one of them basically says that the reason someone couldn’t help was because they were too fat to fit through the church window.
