There is a taxidermied dog visible in several shots, but no dog dies in the course of the film.

A man loudly slams the dining table and scolds his partner during dinner, but doesn’t hit her. May be triggering to survivors

A man eats a rat but it’s all sleight of hand - not even a fake rat is shown. There’s a crunch sound then a line of blood drips down his chin.

Protag pukes and we see in the sink that she vomited bugs and lizards. It is shortly after she pricks her thigh with a needle, if you want to prepare to look away.

A man tries to seduce the protagonist in her bedroom, making her unzip his vest and then tightly embracing her despite her repeated attempts to dismiss him. He says, “you don’t just unzip a man and say goodnight.” It’s very creepy.

Many people fall through a skylight in one scene, but do not necessarily die.

No mutilation, but characters “weep” blood once they are infected.

Character pricks her thigh with a hatpin in one scene. Not needles per se, but was triggering for me personally.

Quite a few provocative scenes and implied polyamory. Nothing overtly explicit.
