Half-Disected fetal pig is used as a puppet, but it is not shown alive at any point.

The mother of the main characters is a recovering alcoholic. She relapses in episode 7 and her children are aware of it, but the relapse is short lived and she seeks help from a friend to move forward in recovery.

There is no physical torture, but a murder walks through a house after killing someone and calls out the name of someone hiding, which causes severe PTSD throughout s1

I don't recall if there is actually cheating, but the only instance I can think of does not constitute as cheating because they weren't technically boyfriend/girlfriend

The father of the main characters is murdered prior to the start of the show. His death is focused on throughout the show, and is shown in episode 1. Another character with a child is implied to have died/been permanently trapped in episode 10.

Part of the plot involves possession by “demons”. They do not act in a stereotypically frightening manner when possessed (Exorcist, Emily Rose, etc.) but the mind of the original host does not appear to survive.

No syringes, but there's a similar feeling when a key is stabbed into someone's neck/chest.

No treatments are given to any characters on screen or even referenced, and the setting is more care home than hospital.

The villain often uses gaslighting tactics to manipulate other characters into doing their bidding.

The opening scene of the show involves a man killing himself by setting himself on fire. His death is later referenced as a suicide. Another character is murdered, but his death is wrongly ruled a suicide by most.

Exactly 15 minutes into the second episode there is a scene in which a woman sexually assaults a man. She was deceiving him in order to kill him and was not actually interested in sex, but this constitutes sexual assault and the scene is pretty graphic. However, it is entirely skippable with no important story line aspects other than it furthering the fact that she is evil.

There is no incestuous relationships of any sort, but two siblings have romantic or sexual encounters with the same being and this may trouble some viewers. This is not revealed until the very end.

No nudity, and all implied sexual encounters occur off-screen. Kissing is frequently shown.

(SPOILERS) A prominent character is revealed to change gender presentations and the plot is slightly messy in regards to this. They are not transgender, the scenario is plot relevant and supernatural in origin. However, the conflict in dialogue surrounding the use of multiple pronouns gets slightly messy and there is one off-handed comment of "he, she, nonbinary, whatever" though to me (a nonbinary person) this was all mainly a byproduct of a plot device, not an intent to trivialize transgender or nonbinary people.

Season 1 totally does NOT have a happy ending! ........................... SPOILER ..................... All but one of the characters think the whole thing was resolved definitively (although someone has mysteriously gone missing, which weirdly doesn't seem to bother them all that much), but they're wrong.

Characters are said to have drowned in the past, but that later proves to be a cover-up. Other characters become trapped in a rising tide, but escape unharmed.

There is some child abuse when a child gives his hungry sister food without asking. It is also mentioned in a brief flash of writing on a counselor's notes.

Non-fatal strangulation; holding breath under water because of mortal danger.

Depends on definition. A parked car with no one inside is lifted a few meters into the air and crashes back down. It's not badly damaged, though; it's still driveable.

Children are frequently physically attacked and put in mortal peril. No lasting damage is done, and none of it is by a parental figure.
