The blood is not gathered by syringe, but by cutting their thumbs with a knife. A syringe is shown when tranquillising a dog.

An alien at one point does assume a very disturbing spider-like form.

There are no children in this movie. Only several grown men.

We're not made aware of any of these men's families, so we don't know if any of them are parents.

A helicopter crashes on screen and a spaceship (flying saucer) crashes before the movie.

The dog monster pukes all over one of the other dogs in the kennel as it is shapeshifting.

One black man does die, off screen, the other is one of the two characters left at the end.

It is the only way to “kill” a thing, plus several people infected by it are burned

Not by an evil spirit, but they do get taken over by the Thing. Sometimes it's able to completely take over someone and mimic them so that everyone thinks they're still human.

Well, there's a few autopsy scenes. That might make people uncomfortable. This movie has a lot of gore and body horror, it's pretty gross.

This is a tough one, but no, the thing assuming other people’s form by consuming them and changing shape is not body dysmorphia.

Not by the definition here, but dogs do fight the thing, just no one is forcing them too.
