The cat is NOT thrown down stairs. The cat either jumps from, or is dropped from, an attic opening in a large, walk-in closet. The cat hits the ground running, in front of Jennifer Lopez’s character, as a stereotypical jump scare, before a second jump scare. No one is shown throwing the cat, and the cat is fine after he runs away from her. No abused cats in this movie.

There are two instances where needles are used. The first time is in a medical emergency with an epipen. The second time is also the epipen, but it’s used as a weapon go gouge someone’s eye out.

The psycho character owns a handgun and uses it twice. First, he goes to a field to show off his skills ,and second is when he is terrorizing the main characters (at the end).
