The main character, Shilo, collects bugs, and you can see her chase one at the beginning of the movie, and there are some in display cases in her room.

Nathan (father) slaps Shilo (daughter) at the end of 'Seventeen'

Shilo is slapped by her father at the end of 'Seventeen'. It is also revealed at the end of the film that Shilo's father has been poisoning her to make her sick so he could keep her at home under his control. Shilo's father gaslights her several times (most noticeably after 'Things You See in a Graveyard' and 'Seventeen'). Shilo is 17 at the time that all of this happens, but it's implied this has been happening her entire life.

The fictional painkiller Zydrate is shown and mentioned.

Up to interpretation. Zydrate Anatomy includes grinding and suggestive dancing between the Graverobber and Amber Sweet while she is under the effects of a drug, it's unclear to which extent it effects her ability to consent.

Intense. A man is tortured and has his organs removed while alive and once dead has a character shove a hand into his abdomen, up his throat into his skull, and is played like a puppet

No amputation of limbs or such but people's organs are being removed.

Sort of. People have their organs taken out while conscious. The point isn't to cause pain, but it does and they are not given anesthesia.

At times it can be excessive with the gore with people having their organs taken and all, but it looks so fake that it'd be hard to see this as really that bad

Several people have their torso cut open. It is very graphic.

Not obvious, but in the Zydrate Anatomy scene, one of the 'Z-whores' is rendered unconscious after shooting up.

Marni gets together with Nathan and therefore breaks Rotti's heart. It's kinda unclear if she cheated or just left him, though.

Sort of; a teen is coerced into 'running away' for a short time.

There's not an explicit hospital scene, but the entire movie is about surgery and medical themes, some of which is preformed on camera.

Rotti is terminally ill; while his illness has never been confirmed it is implied to be lung cancer.

Yes. The titular Repo Man struggles to cope with the violent nature of his job. It is not explicitly stated to be ptsd, but he clearly feels guilt and calls himself a “monster.”

This is a sci-fi dystopia. Every single main character does or is implied to do something violent. Many are mentally ill, but it’s implied to be a result of the terrible state of the world. In other words, they’re not violent just because they’re mentally ill.

Someone directly causes trauma to their body that would have likely killed them anyways, but the actual COD was not direct. It was murder, but the person knew it would happen. Indirect suicide.

In brief, emotionally intense moments. One section where it's particularly prevalent is at 47:00.

The Graverobber is known to address the audience in certain cases (such as where he introduces and concludes affairs). He looks at the camera and addresses the viewer in these cases.

Though no character that is explicitly queer dies, there are characters that depending on the viewer may be seen as queer that do die.

A fat man stands up while testifying for surgeries "Before GeneCo, my anatomy was completely surpressed," meaning he was thin and Geneco's solution was to make him fat to fix dysmorphia

There isn't anything in the movie, but there are short moments that ping similar vibes in terms of interest of older men towards a 17-year-old character (with one writer confirming this was intentional), though one where it's more obvious is a deleted scene and it's overall not too blatant in the actual movie.

No one actually has sex on-screen, but the movie has a lot of sexual and kinky energy to it. In particular: • There are two pairs of sexualized bodyguards (shirtless men, women with fishnet stockings) • Drug users react to the drug as if it sexually arouses them. • A chorus of minimally clothed dancers grind on each other. • Several people wear leather harnesses and other BDSM attire. • A woman removes her top with no bra underneath.

the Genterns feature functionally as sexual props throughout the movie. most of the women in the movie are wearing sexualized clothing.

there's no full frontal nudity, but there's at least one scene where a woman very prominently bares her breasts.

People’s homes are generally not shown on screen, however the Graverobber is seen to be reading a newspaper in a dumpster in a way that implies he is generally found there.

Most of the violence in this movie is with knives, but there is one gun and it does kill someone.
