While the dog was technically dead before filming, the dog corpse shown is an actual euthanized dog that production team bought and ripped apart.

None is shown but the protagonists mention that in the past one of their dogs killed another dog, then laugh about it.

22 min and 47 seconds in it shows a dead German shepard that has been torn apart. You don't see the dog die, but you see it run off and then squeal off screen. It's the owner who finds the dog dead. Not an incredibly graphic death, but upsetting nonetheless. And it looks like it may be a real dog.

Yes, about 15 minutes into the movie when a girl gets asked to fetch a jacket in the trailer. Look away when she walks in, you'll hear her trying to stomp it, when dialogue with someone starts, it should be good to look back :) less than a minute on screen.

The older father is attacked and tied up by mutants, later burned alive. Doesn't linger on it too much, but if you have a fear of getting burnt, it'll be something to watch out for.

Yes, but it isn’t cut like often makes me squeamish here. Towards the end of the film, [spoiler] the dog attacks Pluto’s leg, which in itself is not graphic, but when they show the aftermath, the Achilles tendon appears very much exposed.

The whole premise of the movie is based on the legend of Sawney Bean and his brood, a family of inbred cannibals living up in the hills. Incest is implied but never explicit.
