You don't see every living thing on the planet die on screen though. So I don't recall any dogs dying onscreen, or the death of an individual dog discussed or implied.

The spectacle of brutal murder is a key part of the plot in this movie. However, it is largely a satirical critique of such portrayals.

Not gaslighted, but very heavily manipulated, including use of drugs to change characters' behaviour without their consent.

I could swear there used to be a bestiality trigger but since I can’t find it… there’s a disturbing scene where a character makes out with a taxidermy wolf head on a dare. The wolf is dead (obviously) but since there is no bestiality trigger, I don’t know where else to put this.

There is one giant snake that kills people on screen, and a few giant bugs that don't have much of a role in the movie and could even go unnoticed. No rats.

They mention sex a lot and at one point find a two way mirror that allows a dude to see into a girls room as she's undressing. He stops looking but gross all the same. Plus a sex scene with two characters later.

Actions and behaviours by the main characters are shown to be influenced by outside forces. At the end, the characters learn that the events of the movie were orchestrated to follow a particular design, suggesting that their lives are predestined.
