You don’t see the horse die but you do see one dead on the ground and it is a bit graphic. You’ll know the part is coming when a character is climbing out of a well and you start to hear flies

Part of the Strigoi transformation process is one’s external genitalia turning black and falling off. We only see the after-effects, with a smooth and featureless pubic area.

One of the main good guys is a Holocaust survivor, and one of the main bad guys was a Nazi officer. Said bad guy frequently demeans the good guy referring to him either as "The Jew" or by the number on his arm. There are scenes in concentration camps as they explore the good guy's story in the past. There are deaths, violence, and vampire gore as well - all on jewish prisoners in the camp.

One of the main villains is a literal Nazi, so there’s a lot of hate speech in regards to the Jewish people throughout the show.
