Violence & Gore

  • In the first episode the corpse of a boy is seen. His body is dismembered
  • In episode 2, a graphic shooting takes place with visible blood and some gore. The worst is that we see a blood spurt out of the back of a character's head when shot. We later see the character's face and a small bloody hole in their forehead. This scene is repeated as a flashback in multiple episodes.
  • A character is shown with blood all over his mouth and face. It is very dark and disturbing.
  • A character hangs themself. We see their feet dangling and hear them make choking noise.
  • Ep 3: A man cuts his own throat and we watch him slowly bleed to death.
  • Animals are shot by a hunter in several episodes. In Ep 4, we see a long shot of a bloody, gory, mangled deer carcass (it's predictable when this shot will happen).
  • Characters are afflicted by burns and boils on the backs of their necks. They are seen in detail in many episodes.
  • A man is shot in the head and several scenes of his dead body are shown with a visibly gory wound.


  • Multiple uses of the f word and s word. Most profanities excluding anything racial.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are intense scenes throughout and bloody violence at times (see violence/gore).
  • A child appears to be in a trance and seeing supernatural visions.
  • We see an ominous figure in the background with a smile that appears to be disfigured or creepily off.
  • Ep 3: A small jump scare in the dark followed by some spooky aftermath. It's very predictable.
  • The key crime in this series involves kidnapping, torturing, murdering, and cannibalizing young children. This is never depicted, but it is a sad and disturbing theme that runs throughout the whole show.
  • Characters are psychologically tormented into committing suicide.
  • SUICIDE TRIGGER WARNING: Virtually every episode has a very graphic depiction of a suicide. If you are currently struggling with suicidal ideation, please DO NOT WATCH this show and seek mental health support from a qualified provider.
