(Spoilers) A child witnesses her mother's suicide. We see flashbacks of the event. This could be considered abandonment perhaps.

The main character scares her partner, and her partner says cruel things to her about mental illness, but I don’t think there’s any actual violence between them

(Minor spoilers) Victims of the curse are forced to traumatize other people in a similar way, not of their own will but there's an undercurrent of suicide being traumatic to other people.

Main premise of the movie is a monster that only one person can see, so everyone except that person says she’s “cr*zy.” Trying to get someone to believe her is a large part of the plot

Possibly implied. The main character's mother is referred to as being awful, and there are multiple flashbacks of the mother's suicide by overdose.

Thanks to so many of you who give good information. As we all know these animals are not really killed, but who likes to see that kind of suffering in an animal. Even if we don’t actually see the abuse. I’ve come to really really rely on this app for every single movie I am about to watch. And all the very cool people who feel like I do, I am so glad this app exists!

There are a relentless amount of jump scares, and a lot that don’t involve usual audio cues to prep you for them. A few of the scares revolve around loud, sudden noises that are unexpected. If you are sensitive to loud noises, or are overstimulated by jumpscares, I don’t recommend seeing in theaters. This movie is LOUD.

Much of the film heavily revolves around a curse which drives someone to commit suicide after a certain amount of days of supernatural + psychological torment, thus being a major plot point in the film.

No explicitly autistic characters, although there is one character —a patient in the main character’s emergency psychiatric facility— who could be. It’s unclear what his primary diagnosis actually is but he exhibits repetitive behavior. He’s mostly not mistreated but at one point the main character has a hallucination that he is becoming agressive and calls for him to be restrained by orderlies. That scene might be triggering for some of us. Also, later, she hallucinates repeatedly stabbing him.

The entire movie is based of a chain of suicides. Specifically people watch someone commit and are forced to do the same. If this is a trigger, skip this movie.

Yeah, at around 0:31:04, a security alarm goes off suddenly.

Edit: SO MANY jump scares that go from quiet to very loud suddenly. Honestly, there’s too many for me to catalogue right now.

Not sure why so many people are voting no, characters look directly into the camera multiple times. Most notably, a man says “you’re going to die” multiple times while looking straight into the camera. He is talking to another character onscreen, but he turns his head slightly to look at the camera instead, which makes it feel like his is addressing the viewer. Then at other times, the camera takes the position of the monster, and the character looks fearfully at the camera as if the audience is the threat to them. TL;DR No direct narration or meta-narrative, but characters frequently look at the camera, once while chanting “you’re going to die”

No, there are two note-worthy black characters, neither of them die but one of them is a criminal, so that may seem like bad representation. However, that criminal is seen in a sympathetic light.

SPOILER

The closest thing to nudity is Rose's mom in her underwear near the end of the movie

MAJOR SPOILERS: Very dark, even for the horror movie. Not only does the main character die, but her emotional arc is unresolved, she dooms her main ally, and they do not manage to kill or even hurt the thing that’s killing them. Seems like it’s setting up for a sequel or something, nothing is resolved.
