It is hard to pinpoint one particular moment, but you do know it when you see it. One part of the film that stands out as this is near the end, when several people are burned alive, some against their will.
At one point, also near the end, a character is forced to try eating a raw fish whole. She does not succeed and is laughed at. This could be considered torture.
There may also be an element of psychological torture throughout the entire film, but this is closer to gaslighting.

Episode 2, starting at 29:25. A man is tortured through electrocution in multiple places. It’s pretty graphic. If you want to skip this scene, skip ahead to 30:23. Later on the man’s body is discovered by Eudora Patch (the detective) and it’s a very graphic image (they leave him how they tortured him). This is at 52:20, and ends at 52:42

In the first episode the main character is hit in the face and his nose bled. the beater wiped blood away and licked the blood from his thumb, then intimidated him further by holding a shiv to the inside of his nostril. but does not cut him.

in one scene a kid is held down by 2 bullies while a 3rd starts cutting letters into his stomach with a knife. he is stopped before he finishes what he was trying to do, but it is still pretty hard to watch.

One particular character is tortured, both physically and psychologically, to a point where they essentially become an entirely different person & end up entirely submissive to their captor.

Depends on definition of torture. Spoiler: a man is restrained while they cut one of his fingers off and the guests are being held hostage and tormented with mind games/death

**With as few spoilers as possible**

There are several scenes in this film that show innocent people terrified and suffering. They are not “tortured” in the traditional sense, but they experience froms of dehumanization and drawn out agony. The film does not linger on these moments for an exceedingly long time, but their disturbing nature hits hard in the moment.

Three scenarios come to mind:

1.) a young person is brutally attacked by an animal. The character is injured and helpless, but the animal periodically returns to continue attacking them. The scene is framed so that you cannot see the attack directly, but you see everything else and hear it as well. You see the scars sustained by this character later on in the film.

This animal also attacks another character that is attempting to flee. This character runs off screen and you can hear the animal maiming them.

2.) a group of people of all ages are killed in an unexpected and disturbing manner. Before their death, they experience a nightmarish scenario and suffer a great deal because of that. You can hear them scream and beg for help. They are then killed in a swift and brutal manner. It technically happens off screen but just barely imo.

3.) A character experiences a debilitating injury and is left to die in a disturbing way. You hear them scream in agony beforehand (For what it’s worth, they ultimately brought it upon themselves).

There is interrogation and references to torture. since it's minecraft it's never explicit or extreme, but it's used once or twice.

We see a drawer full of weapons and tools that is very disturbing and then we see two victims after being tortured. We see them physically and emotionally harmed and disturbed. We also see body parts and corpses repeatedly and the main character casually mentioning his violent acts. And we see his doodle drawings of his torture and violence in detail.

No active torture is shown, but it is a central idea. Areas and objects obviously used for torture are present. Characters are trapped/held hostage. At one point, a character plays a tape containing torture, but we don't see the scene at all, and all we hear from the tape is about 2 seconds of a woman crying with the sound of blows landing

Some prolonged off-screen deaths where you hear people screaming in pain. Also a couple scenes of people being threatened with what is essentially a torture device, in the opening (it cuts away before you see the death) and on two other occassions where the characters escape unharmed

Arguably, yes— multiple characters are not in control of their own feelings and are subjected to horrible actions and fates at the hands of another character controlling them.

It's not graphic, but a character gets captured, is restrained by some magic stuff and is shown to be in pain because of it.
