There is a drawn-out, graphic, and brutal death of a dog. Could be considered animal torture, very upsetting.

There are brief mentions of town lynching victims in one of the interludes and another key figure is lynched by hanging after he has committed murder.

One character's fears are all about his eyes so there are some very gory eye scenes

There is a scene in a bath, but I don't know if that counts.

Most of the time you can sort of tell in a book when a scare is coming up, but there are abrupt and disturbing scenes in the It novel.

Obviously you can’t see it so if you are sensitive to the subject then skip over (even though it’s not graphic) the first couple of lines when Richie’s part starts on page 60 and also it may be done somewhere else in the book but the book is 1153 pages long and I’m not currently re-reading it so.... not that I remember. If there is, then it shouldn’t be too graphic because I would have probably been triggered by it. Uhhh yeah... Safe readings 😄

The father of a major character dies from cancer; we see him in the hospital in flashback, clearly suffering.

Yes, the first described victim is a gay man. A main character who is heavily coded to be gay also dies.

There are many instances of the n-word and other related slurs. They appear in multiple chapters and are used heavily by one of the main antagonists.
