A dog doesn’t die but the main character eats dog poop and it’s real. (Didn’t know what section to put this in but felt it needed to be said.)

There is a r*pe scene as well as implied forced pregnancy more than once. You might also be able to categorize Edie's treatment as elder abuse, I'm adding this because she is a woman.

There are general themes of incest and familial abuse, as well as a scene of a man exposing himself to two young women. No children are directly abused, but there is an instance of a baby in a very toxic environment.

A real chicken was killed on screen during this movie and abused in the making of the scene. It is strangled, thrown around, beaten against a wall, and its beak used to rape one of the characters. I don't have timestamps but its when cracker and cookie go into the back shed to have sex.

Two women are chained up in a basement.
A man is physically restrained so that he can be locked in a closet. The same man is later tied up by Divine and then chained in the basement by the freed women who were chained there.
There are probably some other cases of physical restraint.

YES, multiple times. [Spoilers] Cookie is raped on screen with the head of a live chicken, which obviously hurts the actor and ends up killing the chicken, and she looks and sounds distressed throughout. Several women are kept in a basement and artificially inseminated in order to sell their babies. They talk about some of the women being raped, and a man masturbates over an unconscious woman and then injects the semen into her with a syringe. A man flashes a woman in a park.

1st instance is during the chicken scene (see "are animals abused?"), happens onscreen and it's quite bloody.
2nd isn't exactly mutilation but i don't know where else to mention it: during the birthday party scene someone flexes their anus to look like it's singing, and this is shown quite close up.
3rd is after the women in the basement are freed - the act of mutilation isn't shown but you see the resulting wound during a later scene in the basement

(haven't seen the movie in a while so going off memory, hopefully someone else can confirm) a dog is seen pooping in the final scene of the movie. also the main character is gifted (real) human faeces in a box at one point, though the act of pooping is not shown in that instance

One of the characters is called a "closet queen". Divine is generally treated with disdain by some characters, but gendered correctly.

Devine (one of the first trans drag superstars of film) is known for being the heroic villian. You are suppose to as a viewer be on the side of her and see how filthy and despicable and depraved she is, and view this in a heroic context. She in one instance mails a turd to her competetion to stick it to them. A heterosexual couple whose claim is that they are more sexually depraved and will sink to lowest of lows in their journey as a couple to know no depths they havent fully scraped the bottom.of the barrel of. Devine is furious as she is the filthiest, most sexually deviant and depraved and well, she will show them.
** sexual trigger, gross body stuff, butt stuff, sex stuff alert go to the paragraph following this one below..** In one scene there is an orgy and there is someone demonstrating their anal prolapse as they are doing a headstand/tripod sort of pose. Its called an "ass tulip". Its where your inner rectal skin detaches from the facia and muscle that holds the inner lining and can be pushed outside the body. There is some suggestion of a chicken fetish and a chicken tossed into a 3 some scene. These are all sex scenes done cheesily and they arent like porn. They are poorly acted and feel like home videos from the late seventies. There is sexualization of morbid obesity paired with a baby fetish, there is lots of penis shown and hairy bush as well as breasts are plentiful. It is as sexually charged and focused as a 20 year old male. It probably is a lot like being in the head of one as a matter of fact. One that is trans anyway..

There is a lot of vulgr language and vulgarities about uncouth stuff, bodily functions, etc. They glamourize being dark filthy trailer park trash. It is unapologetic and meant to be done badly.

This movie is 60% around sex or being the filthiest most depraved person alive and 40% hard to follow storyline.
It is meant to be over acted and cheesy. It is grainy with bad sound. It is perverted. It is also brilliant work as it is made by John Waters and he loves being the film maker from the sympathetic position of the villian. John waters is a man against the normies and the sterilized beige society. He glamorizes the rogues of society. This can be applied evenly across the many many films he has made. Waters is a homosexual and a creative genius weirdo. You will always get a dose of tmi or find something thay will thorougly bother you in every film. Brace yourself.

These films by john waters especially Pink Flamingos

Should not be watched by a anyone who is sensitive and has triggers period. These arent for the weak or easily moved.

Real blood when cookie and the chicken get cut up, and fake blood when the partygoers cannibalize a bunch of cops and when the girls in the basement cut off a man's penis. I don't know if it fits in any of the categories but a woman eats a real dog's poop at the end.
