Some of the stories the kids tell are schlocky horror stories. One includes a teenage serial killer who targets girls his age and we see him murder them, as well as seeing their injured ghosts after.

This show is NOT AT ALL SAFE FOR PPL WHO CAN’T WATCH SELF HARM!! In episode 2 there is graphic self harm (VERY GRAPHIC CUTTING AND STABBING OF THEMSELF), then I think it’s calms down a bit, but starting in (I believe) episode 6, there is an excessive amount of self harm. People slicing their hands and things like that. Episode 9 is also very graphic with lots of cutting and people vomiting blood

In episode 3 a character smashes another character's head with a hammer. It's done through a towel so you don't see anything but later in the story you see her and it's clear the blow made her lose an eye.

Like as soon as she does mute and turn away it’s pretty graphic

It will depend on how you think about addiction and addicts, but worth mentioning, I think… There’s a reference to a past event where an addict acts out somewhat aggressively towards a friend who was trying to help her get clean. She chucks something heavy at him.

Also, there’s some (arguable) mental illness metaphors in the scary stories. The Dusty story in particular involves a serial killer who could be interpreted as mentally ill and experiencing psychosis/hallucinations… Although the implication is that Dusty’s visions are supernatural and real, (spoilers) he is declared “insane” at the end and in put in a mental institution. (/spoilers)

(SPOILERS) Just clarifying that although Spence is considered terminal when the first season takes place (1994), he is still alive at the end of the series. Also, based on the timeline for breakthroughs in HIV/AIDS treatment (protease inhibitors were approved in 1995) it’s entirely possible that he will live for a long while yet.

Throughout the series, the kids talk about being subjected to discrimination, othering, micro-aggressions and pity because of their respective conditions. Especially in episode 4, the kids joke about the phrase “so brave” and being constantly compared to their peer’s grandparents, older relatives and even dead pets.

Depends on what the definition of a sad ending is. Most characters are terminally ill and are going to die. But they have started to find peace with their fate.
Mike Flanagan has confirmed that in Season 2 four characters would have died, one would have not been terminal anymore and survive, one would still be alive and at the hospice at the end of the show.
- When the characters die, they would have been comforted by a personified death
- Two characters are soulmates who have already found each other in several lives and find each other again in the next ones
- The characters live on in their loved ones' memories and the stories of the future Midnight Club members

It’s not graphic but it’s described and you can see the deceased person (with blood and all) sitting in the car after the crash

*THIS IS A NO-SPOILER GUIDE WITH ONLY TIMESTAMPS NOT WHAT SCENES TO WATCH OUT FOR*

In ep 2 the character will narrate something like “so she grabbed a gun.” After that, in a few minutes there will be the SOUND of a gunshot. It is only heard and not pictured. In ep 4 with 15:53 left in the episode a character pulls out a gun and fires it (gunshot noise heard but off screen). Also in ep 4 VERY OUT OF THE BLUE there is a gunshot on screen when there is 13:36 left in the episode. With 12:06 left there is a replay of that same gunshot but it’s quieter. With 10:20 left there is another gunshot but it happens at the same time as a thunderclap so I didn’t even notice it until I replayed it. In EP7 with 31:14 left in the show there will be a gunshot after a few seconds. Also in EP7 with 30:11 left in the episode there will be a gunshot after a few seconds.
