Ernest is an implied-alcoholic (he drinks a Bloody Mary for breakfast in one scene and almost drinks whiskey(?) near the end but changes his mind) and there is a sequence of a murder plan to make Madeline look like she died while DUI, but there aren't any actual binge-drinking scenes.

There's an image of a car falling off a steep ridge and exploding, killing its driver. We then see the hand of the badly burned body as it's examined by autopsy technicians. This all takes place in an imaginary sequence and nobody really burns alive.

Madeline breaks many bones in a fall, leaving her body horribly twisted, but she survives due to magic. Later some of these bones are broken again (her neck in particular) but again she survives. While not very realistic (90s special effects), the imagery is likely to be disturbing for someone with triggers relating to broken bones.

There's a prolonged fall down a staircase that should kill the character, but they survive (in a way) because of magic. Another character falls from a great height, thinking they will die, but they land in water and survive.

The beginning of the movie is pretty fatphobic. A woman gains a lot of weight after binge eating due to her depression and the actress is placed in a fat suit. The scenes where she is in the fat suit are framed in a very unflattering way and characters go on to fat shame her multiple times. Her own therapist even mentions how she “hasn’t lost a single pound!” Even after she loses the weight they’re are several remarks about her being fat in the past.
