Okay, maybe one snake is handled a little too roughly for comfort.

At the climax of the film, a magic spell makes a house appear to be completely infested with all sorts of spiders, vermin, insects, snakes, etc in order to scare someone. Soon afterwards, another character hallucinates that her body is infested with roaches.

We're talking walls of snakes. Huge, writhing masses of snakes. I've read that 5000 live snakes were used in the production.

The main character, Sarah, is stalking by two different men. At the begging of the film, there are two scenes in which she is pursued by a ‘vagrant’, who shouts cryptic things and attempts to give her snakes. Later in the film, she is stalked by another student whom she had cast a love spell on (which she quickly comes to regret).

Several times tru the film but Id say the Worst part is when they try to convince the protagonist that she killed several people even her mom when she was born, and other people that were actually killed by the person who is gaslighting her

A man explodes in rage, jumping up from his chair, getting up in his wife's face, threatening to hit her (and seeming very capable of doing so at any moment).

A good portion of the climax of the movie is psychological torture

One of the main character's mother's died when she was born. Another scene insinuates that a character's father and stepmother might have died in a plane crash, but there's reason to question the story's legitimacy. In both cases nothing graphic is shown.

One of the characters summons a spirit (some kind of deity or egregore) and takes in its power but no mention of ghosts per se

There are several scenes set in the school locker room, which has communal showers. No showering (nudity/body washing) is shown here, but there is a segment that shows a girl sitting in a shower and crying as her hair falls out, wrapped in a towel while under the spray of water.

There are some scenes where a character "wears the face" of another character, pretending to be her. And that character starts to act in violent scary ways under the influence of a spirit's power she takes into her, but it's not really a possession, she's just taking that power to a dark place within her. And a couple of the other characters seem to be under the sway of another, and one is under the power of a love spell and loses self control, but no actual typical possessions occur.

There is a character deeply insecure about their burn scars in the first half of the movie and wears long baggy clothes to hide their scars.

Hmm, someone tries to get out of a house but feels trapped by masses of live snakes at the exits. She does eventually get out. Towards the end another person is strapped to a bed in a mental institution, trying to break free of the constraints.

While no suicides occur during the film, one character has attempted suicide in the past (and has scars from it), while another is implied to have at least researched menthods of suicide. An attempt is made to drive a character to suicide, and to murder that character and stage the death as suicide when that fails.

no shaky cam, but a moment where the camera spins very fast and it’s very blurred and could be disorienting and have the same effect as shakey cam. this scene is also combined with bright flashing lights.

Nothing explicit happens, but two characters try to engage in sexual activity with another (see sexual assault entry above). Also a character jokes about "getting laid" and another spreads rumours that they and another character slept together. There is also some kissing.

The step father of Nancy makes a comment toward her and picks at her dressing gown as if to see under it, but no other incidents occur in the movie.

There are two attempted (but thwarted) sexual assaults, one of a girl by a boy through force, and one of a boy by a girl through fraud.

A character who used to be more or less normal ends up in a mental institution, strapped to a bed. The protagonist has become somewhat callous and vindictive (although for good reason). Two people have died in the course of the movie. So even though the antagonists get their comeuppance in various ways, we aren't exactly left feeling happy - or at least I wasn't.

The plane crash ends up being fake and it is only shown tru a very old TV and you can barely identify anything but they talk about it, about the deaths and all. Later you realize it didnt happen

The second time the snake-wielding stranger approaches Sarah, he is pursuing her as the main characters are walking along a busy sidewalk in a destitute urban area at night. He gives chase but, as Sarah run across the street to escape, he stops in the middle of the road. He is struck by a car; there is no gore but it is still graphic. Also important to note: In the following scene, the main characters excitedly come to the conclusion that they made it happen with their combined magic and seem happy about this; they tell Sarah it had to be done, to protect her. Given that magic is very real in this film, by the characters claiming responsibility, this is implied as a direct act of violence and could be inferred as (at least) an attempt to cause death.
