Maggots crawl out of wounds. Just the one scene I think. When the little girl is standing behind glass covering her eyes, and wounds appear on her hands, it is about to happen

not strictly gaslighting in a typical sense but theres a very heavy vibe of "mentally ill (especially psychotic) people and abusers are actually just possessed and need help to be free of the devil" which. uncomfy in a gaslighty way

Mother/child abuse
1 comment | Add comment

yes and it's pretty intense. it's a running theme - theres a lot of shouting, a mother rips her childs hair out, the child screams and is visibly terrified, theres door slamming and knocking. it is also done in a "the mother is possessed and it wasnt really her who abused the kid" way

Yes, when the main character goes through archives you can see mutilated fingers and hands

There are a couple of scenes where holy water and crosses start to burn possessed people. No full body burning and no fire.

Yes, when the main character looks through archives it shows a brief image of someone who hung themselves

Sort of. There's a lot of freaky eye visuals and at one point the main character pulls a strand of hair out of her own eyeball, but seems to be fine

There's child abuse and most of the possession scenes could be seen as torture, bones snapping out of place, wounds appearing, etc. Victims of possession clearly in pain.

Somewhat. There's flashes of injuries from past exorcisms and some of them are grotesque and involve needles/weapons. A minor character also mentions cutting herself.

there is one particularly graphic moment where a 10 year old girls has her hair telekinetically sucked into her mouth and it starts choking her. two priests actively try to pull it out but they cant. she ends up being okay, but it was very hard to watch and is a pretty extended sequence of events

Several instances of bones cracking and breaking. A character breaks her ankle on screen near the end

No, but some of the visuals of the possessions look seizure-like at times (convulsing, eyes rolling back etc)

It doesn't kill them, but there is a struggle during one of the child abuse scenes where the child is dragged/falls down the stairs

No, but an infant is given away for adoption and taken by nurses as it cries which can be distressing to someone who has this trigger

Only a clothed sponge bath scene, not a full on showering scene

No, but some of the ways the demon appears are similar to how ghosts tend to be shown in ghost films. Someone seen in a reflection, shadowy figure in a hall, someone there then they vanish, voices in the dark, etc.

No but there are close up mouth shots of possessed characters where tongues and some drool is involved

Nobody vomits but there are a few scenes where people make motions or sounds that made me think they were about to vomit (but they didn’t). There was also a scene where Natalie choked on her hair and then a fist came out of her mouth, and that scene was hard to watch for someone with severe emetephobia but not terrible. Also Anne coughed up water towards the end. But no actual vomiting!

the entire movie is centred around a church-run "mental institution" which devolves fairly quickly behind closed doors into what's not much better than a prison for anyone possessed, including the main focus who is a 10 year old girl

I would say about a third of the scenes take place in a pseudo hospital setting inside the school of exorcism

All of the violent people are possessed, not mentally ill. There is a debate about whether some are possessed or mentally ill, but they all turn out to be possessed. It could still be distressing for someone with this trigger though.

Yes, there's a character who does so off screen, a parent whose body is found after doing so (it's a bit vague what happened specifically), and it's seen in exorcism archives

No, but there's a part where the main character appears to think about it to safe a child from a demon. She realises her mother killed herself to safe her from a demon. She then takes the demon from the child into herself and in the struggle manages to jump into a well. If there hadn't been somone there to save her she would have drowned and it appears she knew she'd probably die before she did it.

No, but there's a scene where a demon causes a woman's belly to rappidly swell with something moving inside. We also see a newborn being taken from the mother straight away.

I think it's a thin line. the movie is about institutionalising a lot of people claimed to be possessed who may just be mentally ill. theres a lot of talk of especially psychotic disorders being false diagnoses to cover demonic possession, and I think that even though in the film these characters are actually possessed, this is rhetoric used to abuse mentally and intellectually disabled people a lot so it can be uncomfy. the characters are explicitly told to ignore the victim themselves and focus on exercising the demon, which is. not great to hear considering the church is masquerading as a legitimate mental institution and has ambulances answering to it

it's definitely not conclusively happy in that (spoilers!) demons aren't eradicated and the protagonist still has to actively fight them. but it definitely rings more as hopeful to me than bleak, since she is capable of fighting back and seems confident in her abilities

Blood definitely. There's a lot of body based horror when it comes to exorcism (wounds appearing, eyes doing weird things, self harm etc)
