Multiple birds are killed for the sake of magic tricks-- many canaries and a dove, their bodies are shown, and they are killed deliberately.

Not technically a pet, but a dove is killed by being crushed in a cage. The first time, the body of the dove is shown. The second time, the main character is led to believe he’ll kill the bird but the bird lives.

Sort of. Movie revolves around magicians, and the plot is like a magic trick, there’s misdirections and the viewer doesn’t always know what’s real.

There's a "buried alive" scene in a coffin. Also, those big water tanks for "escaping tricks" are used in several scenes, and there are deaths involved... There's a mention of the magical assistant girl having to fold her body and get into a crammed space to do a trick, but not shown.

There's not a lot, but when a gun is shown, you can expect that someone's going to get injured.
