* The scene where Ofelia looks at the book in the bathroom and sees nothing but blood spreading over the pages, then (clearly terrified) opens the door into the bedroom to see her mother hemorrhaging. Something about so much blood on white bedsheets, and the way she cries and her 11-year-old daughter is the only one around to get help... It just evokes [[PrimalFear such natural fear]] about [[DeathByChildbirth the potential dangers of pregnancy/childbirth]], especially at home, in a time when medicine wasn't what it is now, and in an environment where the man of the house is perfectly willing to let her die if she gives him a son first... She seems horribly vulnerable in a way that, like the realistically violent scenes, is worse because it can and ''does'' really happen.

** Her DeathByChildbirth is a cruel inevitability on re-watching, especially for people who are only used to the media's usual CleanPrettyChildbirth. She spends the movie in a clearly difficult pregnancy, and her hemorrhaging means she was hanging by a thread until Ofelia gets the mandrake from the Faun. And then Carmen finds the mandrake under her bed, gets upset at yet another of Ofelia's fantasy-trips, [[spoiler: and throws the mandrake in the fireplace to prove that magic isn't real]]. [[OhCrap Her screams of pain are terrifying.]]

** The fact that there were so many shots of the dropped chalk has left more than one person terrified that the Pale Man would use it on his side to make a door into Ophelia's room and [[FridgeHorror come after her while she was sleeping.]]

** The horrific and unneccessary demise of two of Ofelia's three fairy guides.
* The scene in which Vidal [[spoiler: beats a man to near death with a blunt object while the man's father is forced to watch, leaving him alive long enough to see his father shot down before him, and then finishing him off.]] And it turns out [[spoiler: the father and son actually ''were'' only hunting rabbits]], making their deaths completely unnecessary. Vidal still didn't show ''any'' signs of remorse; instead, he just tells his men to be more thorough in the future ''before coming to bother him''.

* There's a lot of violence, which is made even more disturbing when contrasted with the protagonist being an innocent child caught in many, MANY predicamenys.
