They are stalked by ghosts, usually hidden in frame or shown far behind them. A ghost continually walks by windows and leers in, scaring the other characters.

No but there are a couple scenes that could be considered torture if you squint. For instance a character is forced to watch as potentially bad things happen to others characters. So it depends on your point of view.

A character is struck by a vehicle and is shown to be bleeding out on the ground in Episode 4. That's the goriest part of the series I think. Another character falls from a great height in Episode 5, and their body is shown in the aftermath, but only a little blood and no bones/guts. Some partially decomposed bodies are shown in brief glimpses. Not a gory series besides those examples.

Not D.I.D. but does show multiple spirits in the same body.
Systems may be triggered by religious scenes that demonize being more than one. And the overall message, especially the ending, that priorities singlethood over life itself.

There were several times in various episodes where I came across a misophonia trigger, specifically the sound of a kiss/smooch and several times with mouth sounds and general eating sounds but it isn’t bad. It isn’t extremely noticeable to most people but my misophonia is very sensitive and it was triggered several times in several episodes!

Episode 4, timestamp 5:08-5:18, a woman mentions she wishes she'd had a daughter to pass on her old dress to, then jokes with a quick roll of her eyes that a certain one of her sons might have liked it. As a trans woman who's generally sensitive to this trigger, I actually chuckled at the line and considered it positive, since she says it rather lovingly and with a smile and the person she's talking to doesn't react, all a relief considering the scene takes place in the 70s or 80s. It just came off to me as a quick reference to her likely having a gay son, but I'm still voting Yes because I could certainly understand more negative interpretations.

Partial nudity when characters are getting dressed or during/after sex scenes. Nothing above a PG-13 rating.

A character implies that his father sexually abused him and other young children in a conversation with his mother, who is complicit. The scene is a few minutes long. It is in episode 7 around the 40 minute mark when peter flashes back to his mom knocking at the door. A brother and a sister are possessed by a couple.

No but the narrator says a widower "bore his bereavement soberly and manfully."

In Episode 8, a character is shown to be slowly dying from a chronic illness. It's clear they're suffering, often kept in bed and needing to be cared for by others. It's a major part of the episode. In the first 4 episodes, a character mentions their mother is suffering from dementia and needs to be cared for. The mother is not seen, but the impact of her illness is called a "burden" and discussed in detail by the character.

Owen's mother has dementia. We don't see her but he talks about her a lot, including some disturbing talk about how being her caregiver is a burden.

More of a bittersweet ending, but very emotional.

In episode 4 a man is hit by a car, though the focus is on him and not the car.

There are multiple drownings, it's a very common recurring theme in the story.
