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).

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

In flashbacks we see an old man who's bedridden (and so weak as to be fatally defenseless), but we don't know what's wrong with him. It may be simply weakness from old age.

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
