YMMV / A Child Called "It"

  • Narm: After a while, the sheer amount of crap David goes through becomes so overwhelming that it spirals around to ridiculous.
  • Nausea Fuel: Catherine forces David to vomit after school every day to make sure he isn't sneaking food at school. One day, when she discovers food remains in his vomit, she puts it in a bowl and forces him to eat it.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Most of the abuse is just horrifying. Especially the part where Catherine stabs David.
  • The Woobie: Arguably David, if it is really based on a true story.
