36 minutes in the dog bites and runs off with a kid. You will notice the camera focused on the dog multiple shots before. At 40 minutes in you'll want to fast forward. Dog is seem laying on ground still alive but shot. Is then shot again and killed. Entire movie has good realistic effects that are hard to watch with the animal scenes.

Verbal altercations between two parents are had in front of kids, but I wouldn't say it's domestic violence.

The goat is killed at 27:17, Shudder time. It's obvious when it's going to happen.

The dog is first shott at 40:16. You hear the gunshot then seconds later, see the dog in a heap but from far away. Camera comes in closer but still a distance away. A hazing filter is used over the dog so you don't see details anyway. At 40:35, the dog is shot again at close range. This time you see the dog's body react to the shot.

Several scenes that would fall under this category. This includes a “rotten” AKA demon-possessed obese, bloated man in his underwear who is shown on a bed covered head-to-toe with oozing pus and sores and boils, eyes almost swollen out of their sockets. He looks inhuman, rotting, and revolting.

Yes, but not really in the typical sense.

Spoilers:

There is a very ill man who leaks pus/fluid from his mouth, mostly in the beginning of the film.
Near the very end of the film a man gags a boy to try to get him to regurgitate whatever he seems to be choking on, so there is gagging and puke like noises but it's less puking and more the man pulling bloody hair and stuff out of the boys mouth.
There might be some more instances along these lines, but there was no outright puking.

the autistic boy is mostly nonverbal. it's not technically unrealistic but i could see people being triggered by the depiction especially since the actor isn't actually nonverbal in real life (it is necessary to the plot however)
