Report
In town for a job interview, a young woman arrives at her Airbnb late at night only to find that it has been mistakenly double-booked and a strange man is already staying there. Against her better judgement, she decides to stay the night anyway, but soon discovers that there is much more to be afraid of in the house than the other house guest.

Women are abused and raped offscreen, but the message of the film is about misogyny and rape culture, so (imo) it doesn't feel like it's only happening for spectacle. The assaults are not shown.

Spoilers (and mentions of sexual assault) ahead:



The Mother is someone who’s spent her entire life underground and was essentially used to bear children.

She kills two people onscreen, but is clearly trying to mother anyone who happens upon the basement. It’s made clear she’s mostly feral and views anyone who ventures into that area (and possibly into the house in general) as her “babies.”

All in all, you get the sense that she genuinely isn’t aware she’s hurting and terrifying the people she considers her “babies.”

Not believing someone isn’t gaslighting. For this to have been gaslighting, the police would have had to know the truth about what was happening to Tess and acted like she was lying.

I would say that AJ gaslights Tess though.

There are many bottles in the house in the flashback and in the older man's room, but it's not clearly alcohol - he may just be a mess

No animals die, there are large empty cages with blood on them and bowls inside but it is implied it‘s being used for humans not animals.

Bill Skarsgard does let the main character watch him open a bottle of wine so she could be sure he didn't add anything to her drink, and explicitly explains why.

Not a plot specific comment but as someone with PTSD around this, I was really surprised by how trauma-informed and not-triggering the movie's treatment of this topic was, mostly with AJ. The people behind the movie clearly have survivors in mind.

There is an audio snippet of SA at 1:26:46. It’s very brief (2 seconds long) and the audience sees nothing.

No active torture is shown, but it is a central idea. Areas and objects obviously used for torture are present. Characters are trapped/held hostage. At one point, a character plays a tape containing torture, but we don't see the scene at all, and all we hear from the tape is about 2 seconds of a woman crying with the sound of blows landing

Near the end. It’s telegraphed pretty clearly if you want to look away. A long fingernail approaches an eye. I don’t think the wound is shown again after it happens but the actual gouging is graphic and intense (edited to specify fingernail)

Not abducted exactly, but women are kidnapped and raped, and then so are the children born to these women. So infants are born in captivity, essentially.
