No, but it is implied that The Grabber’s intention is to sexually assault Finney, and that he assaulted the previous victims. It is never explicitly said, but it is implied by him saying “I would never make you do anything you wouldn’t… like.” and the ghosts saying that they would play “naughty boy” with The Grabber and the second part is The Grabbers “favorite part”.

It’s not shown but after punching someone in the face somebody says their (the person they punched) teeth are sharp, and I think there’s multiple instances when people get punched in the face but it doesn’t explicitly show their teeth

We do see a character get murdered on screen twice and it is bloody but I’m not sure if I would say “excessive”, like we don’t see guts and stuff? but it is enough to make someone uncomfortable if you’re bothered by gore in general.

No, but The Grabber is first pictured wearing white makeup, which is clown adjacent. He also has a hat, balloons and claims he’s a magician. However he isn’t seen in this outfit/makeup again after his initial appearance

Several. Boy gets jump scared when he sees the kidnapper in the corner of basement starting at him. Several jump scares when they show the kidnapper with the mask. Jumpscares pretty much every time boy talks on the phone - they suddenly show a dead child. Later scene when girl is riding her bike, four dead children block her way.

The phone ringing is very loud and jarring and there’s also a bit when Finney is communicating with Vance that gets very loud. When he snaps the Grabber’s neck, the sound is pretty disgusting

Cops are present, but the show does not propagandize or glorify them. In fact, they're quite useless.

Yes, a latino child is called a “b**ner” and the main character is called a “f*g”.

No, but the first two children that we see taken and murdered are not white.

I would say that it sounds like it’s for sexual purposes, but I agree that that doesn’t make him LGBT. Him saying to Finney “I will never make you do anything you don’t like”, the whole “naughty boy game” thing where he sits shirtless and waits to beat them with a belt, him watching over Finney whilst he sleeps and just the fact that he only kidnaps boys are all suspect. “The second part is is favourite part” seems to suggest some kind of sexual assault

The child is running away- and the grabber pulls his van right in-front of the kid and he hits him.
