First scene at the carnival, the ‘beast man’ traps and decapitates a chicken by biting its neck. Very unpleasant and bloody.

Around 5 min in, when they go to see the beast man, it’s on the ground when they show the chicken

The film briefly shows the traditional sideshow “Spidora” act, featuring a gaffed spider with a woman’s head. Several large banners depicting this act also appear in the background.

The carnival geeks are alcoholics that have basically been forced into that life by their addiction. One is even given morphine added to their alcohol to make them more dependent (not shown but discussed).

General face mutilation. A woman also shoots herself in the eye but the camera cuts away as she pulls the trigger

There are no actual ghosts but the main character pretends that he can connect with dead people as a scam. SPOILER His girlfriend is also dressing up as the dead wife of a man they are scamming.

SPOILER At the end of the movie the main character is homeless and while he's looking for work, someone mentions that he stinks like he "pissed himself".

Nothing that triggered mine, but I did happen to notice that there was a lot of lip smacking.

SPOILER The main character pretends that he can speak with the dead son of an old woman, telling her that he is now happy and glad that they will soon be reunited. Later in the movie, she decides to shoot her husband and then shoots herself in the eye. I personally found the scene pretty graphic and abrupt.

There’s several performances of the “Electra” sideshow stunt as well as several flashbacks done via fleeting images.

The woman died years before the events of the film, but the circumstances are talked about at length.

The carnie who owns all the jarred fetuses mentions that some were stillborn. They never actually show the baby being born that way, though.

The event is never shown on screen, but one character (also never introduced on screen) was forced to miscarry years before the events of the film. There is also a collection of unborn fetuses kept by one of the carnies.

A character early on in the movie mentions never having sex with a man consensually before. The topic moves on pretty fast. A man later in the movie admits to hurting women, it doesn’t specify whether this is physical or sexual too.

Are there incestuous relationships?

Lilith carries a small pistol in her handbag and at one point she uses it to shoot Stan in the ear. Stan is shot at by Grindle’s bodyguard. There is also a murder-suicide by gunshot
