Cat is killed unintentionally, dog is killed in self-defense. Fish are killed as the killer tries to kill the victim. So, yes, but it isn’t very lingered upon because the goal is never to harm the animals.

Cat. Very awful. Stop looking when you see glue on the floor or hear the cat at all. Look again 20 seconds AFTER you hear a thunk. About 40-45 min in.

Cat is found stuck in some weird cheesy looking acid glue on the floor. Arkin rips him out of it (graphic cos he pretty much rips the bottom of his paws off in the process). Cat gets thrown up onto a windowsill, sets off a trap and then gets sliced in half. One half slowly slides to the floor leaving a bloodstained mark on the blade which ended his life.

A pet cat is scene suffering in some sort of acid sollution around the 45 minute mark. Then same cat is then unintentionally killed in a gruesome manner shortly thereafter.

Also, the killer has brought a trained German Shepherd who is killed around the 1 hour 15 mark, but it sudden and not explicit. However the dog's body is immediately then used as a projectile.

Arkin is restrained and tortured. The collector cuts his stomach and then holds a jar of roaches to the wound with a fire lit under it (with the idea of forcing the roaches to enter the wound), however, this does not get far at all. It is interrupted before any wound entry.

There is a shot of a live person's head getting crushed in a bear trap, and then later a dead person's head is used to break down a door, both of which are really awful, but there's enough time to look away in both cases before they get super gory.

There’s definitely eye mutilation. There’s a scene of the main character going down stairs into the basement where the parents are being kept. The mom has what looks like duct tape on her eyes? She asks him to take it off and the camera zooms in. If I remember correctly,I think it shows that it has been stapled to her.

A few notable examples - a dead man is shown with his stomach cut open and intestines hanging out. A character falls into a room full of bear traps and is killed by many of them going off. A character dies by a contraption that pins them to the wall with knives. A character who is restrained with fish hooks escapes by pulling his hands down (so the fishhooks go through them). There’s more, but these are just a few notable scenes.

The main character used the f slur (f*ggot) a few times towards the ends of the movie. It was when he was hung up (if I remember right he was hanging up by hooks?) and as a way to distract the collector.

The character uses the slur specifically to enrage the killer, so he can distract the killer from a child. So stop listening when you see her under the desk.
