I (possibly mistakenly) wouldn’t count it as stalking, but it is evident that before they meet, the male lead is following the female lead.

Coer is outwardly cruel to both his children, and often borders on verbally abusive. Benjamin says harmful things occasionally, (to both his fiancée and his neice) but often out of anger, and always genuinely regrets it. Both are forgiven at the close of the movie.

The father of the antagonist family (Tim Curry) could be considered verbally abusive. I think he kind of grabs at them, but no hitting. The uncle the protag goes to live with yells at her for asking questions and is pretty cold to her at first, but no physical abuse. All are forgiven by the end of the movie.

Benjamin isn’t exactly healthy about his alcohol consumption, but it doesn’t ever threaten his or anyone’s life. He’s regularly shown drinking or hungover, especially when he’s grieving.

Benjamin tends to drink rather than confront his grief. Its unhealthy, but never it never puts anyone in danger.

Bad guys trick the dog into falling in one of those hunting false ground traps, and then they poke sticks/spears near dog to keep him down in the hole. He gets out and is ok after.

Not a real dead animal, a dog actor pretends to play dead but there is no blood or anything like that.

Loveday has a snake but it is small and harmless and presented as such. The snake is only on screen briefly.

No, but one character gets scratched across the back of their hand by a sewing needle and it does leave an obvious, linear wound.

Both the protagonist’s parents are dead as the movie starts, one a long time ago, and she attends the other’s funeral at the beginning of the movie.

Not the same, but Miss Heliotrope is often burping. Its played as entirely for comedic effect.

Two characters are shown embroidering, (so, sewing needles,) and mid-project are attacked by “bandits”. The protagonist scratches the one who grabs her.

One intense/bright flash of white “moonlight” at the pivotal tone shift at the end of the movie, but (I believe) nothing that could affect photosensitive viewers.

One character is scratched across the back of the hand with a sewing needle, and the injury is shown again later. Both times it looks red, but not particularly gore-y.

At the close of the movie, one character jumps into the ocean and, while she doesn’t seem to struggle to breathe, she does faint, but makes it back to shore (magic again) unharmed.

A gun is fired at least twice. One shot lands, hitting a dog (who is later magically healed) and the rest miss.
