In a world mostly wiped out by the plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil, the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors.

A dog fights a wolf off-camera. The dog is okay. There are sounds of the fight and we can assume that the wolf is not okay but he is not seen. Dog returns a hero.

not exactly, but there is a very icky sex scene between a woman groomed for years since she was 12 by the dark man, and she starts saying something isn't right and while he shushes her, there is a brief moment shown past the spell's curtain where she cries out as we see the man look different entirely, dirty, and covered in mud, maybe even a different actor, and the scene soon ends after

Okay, this is a stretch but for those who know that the actor playing R.F. is Alexander Skarsgård, his brother Bill Skarsgård plays Pennywise the Clown in the new IT films. A scene towards the end, if you listen closely, RF starts singing in the Pennywise voice. Whether you find this comedic or triggering is, of course, a matter of personal taste, and might be a reach and a half, lol. But I thought I'd mention it because it was very much noticed and discussed with the people I viewed it with.

The slurs “F**b” and “t**d” are used. Also “handy capable” is used by a disabled man when referring to himself (some consider this phrase insulting/patronizing).

I’m going to say yes, overall, the ending is sad.

(SPOILERS) Humanity is mostly wiped out, the dark man is not truly defeated, most of the main characters don’t survive.
