A character and one of their parents get into a brief physical altercation at a dinner scene that takes place during a thunderstorm. The altercation begins with threats of using a knife, one character starts yelling, the two characters slap each other while yelling, start pushing each other, and begin wrestling in the dining room.

The mother-and-daughter relationship is very strained to say the least. The mother is very strict and punishes Pearl by refusing her supper and almost forcing her to sleep in the barn. Pearl's mother also strikes Pearl during an argument.

A character stabs a goose that wanders into the barn with a pitchfork. The kill itself is off-screen but the cries of the goose can be heard, and its body is later shown and fed to an alligator. This first act happens within the first five minutes of the movie. Later, this same character also squishes a fertile alligator egg after mentioning how they hate it when the farm cow, Charlie, stares at them. This act occurs shortly after they are told "Life doesn't always turn out the way you expect" by a parent of theirs.

A goose is killed off-screen with a pitchfork in the opening minutes of the movie after a character feeds the other farm animals. The cries of the goose can be heard and its limp bloody body is shown, still attached to the pitchfork, before being fed to an alligator in a pond. A character also takes a fertile alligator egg from a nest and squishes it with their bare hands.

A character, while in the bathtub, grabs the throat of another character with one hand. The victim, while not visibly distressed, can be heard struggling to breathe. This same character, the previous victim, is also suffocated to death with a pillowcase later—albeit off-screen—loud groans can be heard.

A character catches fire after they come too close to a lit fireplace at a dinner scene that takes place during a thunderstorm. This character does not succumb to their burns, but there is plenty of screaming and visible burn scars that are shown after the fire is put out.

A couple uncensored murders throughout. The goriest is definitely a small mirrored montage at the end of the film, where there’s hyper detailed up close shots of the main character dismembering a dead woman’s body with an axe.

Technically no, but during a dance recital, a character imagines that more dancers are following along with them onstage. These dancers are wearing military uniforms and are wearing what could be considered as clown makeup (Face painted white, painted on rosy cheeks, and black circles drawn around the eyes).

On the extreme spectrum no, but a character does admit to feeling nervous before a dance audition. Outside of the church, they talk about feeling "frightened," they begin to become more silent, and they ask another character to take their place in line to avoid going first.

Technically no, since no characters acknowledge the audience in the film, but the final scene falls into a bit of a gray area. In it, a character walks into a house and is greeted by another character with a comment and a creepy smile. The final shot of the film is that character holding a smile while staring directly into the camera for nearly the full duration of the end credits—to the point that tears well up in their eyes. Their staring could be interpreted as them looking at the audience, as the other character in the room never comments on their staring, nor does the smiling character stop staring to engage with the other character in the room.

I have no idea why people voted no. The main character repeatedly complains about, berates, and contemplates and performs violence against her disabled father. She herself seems to have some mental issues and falls into the mentally ill killer trope

A character straddles a scarecrow early on to the point of their own climax. Plenty of moaning occurs as well. Later, in a movie theatre, two characters watch a foreign film that depicts a man and two women having sex outdoors. The genitalia of one woman is briefly shown as she smiles at the camera. There is also implied sexual content in the form of two characters meeting up, kissing, and later, one is shown getting out of a bed in their underwear.

Pearls father has an unspecified illness which makes him unable to walk and speak. He’s taken care of by his daughter and wife troughout the movie. If this triggers you i suggest skipping the movie because he plays a pretty major role.

A car, with a deceased character in it, is driven into a small pond and technically crashes as it hits the pond floor—it is never fully submerged.

Plenty. A goose is stabbed with a pitchfork and its bloody body is shown later. A character in a movie theater showing is shown getting their face ripped/burned off. A character squishes the fertile egg of an alligator and blood squirts out of it. A character in a military uniform explodes as they walk in a field. A character nearly burns to death inside of a house and their bloody scars are shown. A character stabs another character with a pitchfork outside. A character kills another character with an axe outside. A character chops up the body parts of one character—all of the dismemberment is shown, including them holding the severed head.
