It’s mentioned that Seymour is an orphan— unclear why, but abandonment is one possible reason.

There is an assumedly stray dog seen in a few scenes of the movie. It seems perfectly fine though.

Debatable, Seymour's father figure talks down to him and only adopts him for the money.

Not really, but Audrey talks/sings about how she deserves the abuse from Orin and she wont leave him because she wouldn't be able to find another boyfriend who would be willing to date her.

Kind of. Audrey gets a phone call from Audrey II, and she sees him watching her through her window and laughing.

Audrey, one of our main protagonists, is shown to be verbally and physically abused by her boyfriend. this is a big plot point, as she sings the song somewhere that's green a song about wishing she was with Seymour instead as he is good to her.

This is debatable depending on a few things. There is a silhouette of a woman being slapped, though I don't think it counts as brutilisation or a spectacle really. The same woman is eaten / almost eaten (depending on directors cut or theatrical release) by the plant, which is certainly a spectacle but very tame in terms of blood. If she *is* eaten, it is actually by her request, though the plant's initial attempt to eat her was nonconsensual.

Audrey Two tries to bite a woman's behind. It's implied Orin sexually abuses Audrey. Audrey Two lifts Audrey's dress and some of the dialogue in that scene is reminiscent of a rape scene.

Orin is referenced to have killed small animals in his childhood, which is a well-known symptom of APD, but he's not diagnosed and its never mentioned that he's mentally ill. At the beginning of the movie a song says that Skid Row is a place where depression is "status quo," and many of the characters are deeply unhappy. Beyond that, mental health is not mentioned.

There are several murders. Seymour chops up a dead body, but we don’t see the body as he does so. We do see him feeding the body parts to the plant though

Seymour threatens Orin with a gun. During “Mean Green Mother From Outer Space,” Audrey II shoots repeatedly at Seymour with a revolver, but misses.
