Honestly, I'd say yes. The way the husband treats the main character is incredibly abusive. No physical violence from him is shown, though.

Not by their parents, almost all of the child abuse in episode two. It’s not intense. Episode two content is sometimes referenced in other episodes.

36:25 to 36:45 a ferret is shown dead. It’s mangled and it’s super sad. Don’t know why they have to do this in every scary/thriller show/movie but it’s truly unnecessary.

When the previous owner is recounting his story he describes his wife's psychological struggles, ultimately resulting in her suicide by hanging. You see this briefly in the flashback visuals; he returns to their apartment (having left the house) & discovers her hanging above their bed

S1E1 A man with unspecified mental disabilities breaks into a neighbor’s home and scares a kid living there by hiding in the dumbwaiter and saying “boo!” when the child opens it. The man’s sister mentions that the previous owners of the home allowed him to come in and play with the dumbwaiter, so intent was likely not malicious.

Ep. 2 there is a murder-suicide at the neighbors’ house. Two gunshots are heard as the dad is sleeping. He gets up to see where it came from, but sees nothing. The next morning, emergency services show up and take one victim out of the house under a bloody sheet.

There is a baby who has been ‘sacrificed’ in Ep 2 around 23 mins when you see the people in red skip ahead 30 secs if you don’t want to see. It far-ish away but you can see a bit of blood around the neck and what looks alike a baby.

In episode one, there is a scene between the high school daughter and the 19 year old security business owner that plays off that idea. He flirts and she calls him a creep and calls herself jailbait. In episode 2 their relationship continues and they talk about how the age gap and legalities is "exciting".

The vibes are there even if the actual large gap isn't.

In episode 3 there's presumed flirtation between a teacher and a student.
