Not outright, though it's strongly implied Miriam and John are grooming a teenage girl to become their new lover, as was stated explicitly in the book it was based on.

There is vampire-y "addiction" to blood. This isn't dwelt on frequently, though a main character struggles with the symptoms in the latter half of the movie.

A monkey dies on-screen around the 26-27 minute mark, and then goes through accelerated decomposition.

Near the end, a delirious Sarah is held and pinned down by her boyfriend quite roughly while she fights him. He is trying to help her though, and means no harm, though it looks bad and can be triggering.

Characters are trapped in boxes. It's only directly shown once, but it's implied that many have held this fate.

Several people whither away to dusty corpses/near skeletons but do not die for hundreds of years. Judge for yourself if this is body horror.

The undead lovers of a vampiress rise from their coffins. Though they're not "ghosts" they certainly look ghastly indeed.

Around 26 minutes and 20 seconds in there's a cut to blood being drawn through a syringe from an arm. It lasts a second or two.

Near the very end, shortly after being turned, Sarah stabs herself in the throat in an attempt to kill herself. In a later scene we find out she survived, but at the time it very much seemed like she'd succeeded.

A character ages rapidly and is very distressed by this, they frequently ruminate on and pick at their appearance in mirrors.

from the intro credits during a club scene for say the first 5 minutes of film & near the end, during the attic scene just after a character has committed suicide, about 10 minutes of strobing images.
