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.

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.

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.

Not at all on screen - we never even see a minor. But we're told about incestuous child abuse (not in details, but we know it was full rape) in the past.

Not completely. Two persons try to rescue someone else, knowing that they're risking their own life to a greater or lesser extent: one of them by going back into a terrifying and dangerous place after escaping; the other by helping someone to escape, thus slowing themselves down somewhat. Neither dies as a direct result of their semi-sacrifice.

No, but there are doors that open "of their own accord", with no explanation, and that's scary if you're afraid of ghosts (it was for me). I thought for a long time that there were ghosts in the movie because of that. I still don't know how or why those doors open like that, since nothing else in the movie is supernatural (except perhaps for someone's enormous strength and ability to survive things that should've killed them). Strange.

I am an emetophobe and this didn't trigger me. I got anxious and attempted to close my ears since the comments said it was quick and audio, so I didn't leave. I closed my eyes and tbh, it just sounded like coughing literally, even though I knew what was happening during that scene. If this might trigger you still, totally understandable! But this was my experience 😁. As far as time, I would say 1hr and 15 min in. The movie began at 145pm and when the toilet scene happened it was about 234pm.

There's also a video tape in the basement when AJ is with the old decrepit man. If you might find this triggering, close your eyes because one of the VHS tapes is marked "P*K*R". It didn't trigger me but upset me to see. I wish someone would've wrote that in the comments so here I am giving the warning now lol

Main villain is mentally ill, both explicitly stated and referred to with the word “cr*zy.” The movie seems to be exploring and maybe critiquing the trope rather than playing it straight, but she is presented monstrously, violently, and inhuman throughout.

Main antagonist is a disabled person portrayed monstrously, although this is kind of critiqued rather than played straight. The characters are afraid of and disgusted by this person, but it’s more because of the extreme violence than the disability. The word “cr*zy” is used

Frank does appear to be a lot older than his first victim, although their ages aren't mentioned. He also likely abused children.

Details about sexual assault, horror nudity, an adult breastfeeding scene that is not meant to be sexual but is obviously weird

there are dog crates that evoke BDSM imagery, but this was definitely not a consensual situation

sexual abuse of children is a major plot point. not on screen, only briefly mentioned, so someone definitely looses their virginity but it is not shown or discussed.

One character raped his children, but this is not shown, just referenced. The monstrous character is the result of incestuous relations

A homeless man is initially misconstrued as a threat but later helps a protagonist.

He dies near the last quarter of the film

A car is driven into a wall (not through it) on purpose, to kill someone by crushing them against the wall.
