It is a central plot point, we see it happening to 2 characters (but only the initial burying where we see them lying in the grave and getting dirt thrown on them briefly), one character describes being buried alive in graphic detail (planetarium scene), it is talked about a lot in the second half of the movie.

very mild though-
in a campy tv show, two people have their hearts cut out off screen. the beating hearts are shown in a fridge, and one character is scene with a bloody wound in that area but this is not easy to see.
someone cuts open their chest with a boxcutter but this is surreal and there is no blood or gore.

Extended scene of an episode of The Pink Opaque where a character in the show is captured and force-fed poison. Given the nature of the movie, it's implied Maddie/Owen are also being tortured.

I normally can not watch these scenes but I personally did not find the visuals very triggeringing or disturbing more so the sounds at times.


All the V**** either looked like the a liquid version of the energy in Atlantis or like tv static when it happened. Sometimes the sounds were gag-y. I honstly could not tell you exact times as I saw this in theaters but I’ve tried my best to be as descriptive as I can about when it happens.

In the begining-ish when you hear “ice cream man” he looks as if he’s melting and you can see stuff come out of the mouth. The character is a melting ice cream cone. Personally did not find it triggering as it looks very 1980s goosebumps animatronic but could be for some.


In the middle of the movie after you hear “help me isabelle” there is a visual when a character is lying in a grave. Then again after you see a character in a snow globe. Another character gets forced to take some blue stuff an v***** (this one all takes place within like 5 min maybe)

In a later scene when a a main character has a flashback about the time when “everything happened” they expell this one is still blue but looked mostly like tv static to me. This one does happen very abruptly.

The final time it happens after a character has a mental break in the middle of work. You dont see it happen but it does cut to a scene where you see the v in a urinal.

Most of the jumpscares in this movie are audio only, and the volume gets very loud mixed with audio gore to unsettle the viewer.
