There's debate around this, but potentially. There is a scene where, in the narrative at least, animals are burned alive. The director has claimed that they weren't really hurt or even in the structure that was burning, but an actor said some did die. A crew member has claimed that the animals were at least in severe emotional distress, with a goat urinating due to fear. During the burning scene, you hear an animal screaming.

In the last scene, the lead character is burned death along with a large number of animals. Although there are no gory close-ups of burning flesh, the scene is extremely realustic and disturbing.

Throughout the movie it's said a girl has "disappeared", but the main character assumes she's been kidnapped. *Spoiler* Towards the end of the movie, the missing girl is found tied up, which implies a kidnapping could have occurred.

Sudden shots of animals and a little girl who falls out of a cupboard, wouldn’t class as jump scares but scenes that may startle jumpier viewers more vulnerable to horror / jump scares like myself, but as someone who’s very jumpy, I was hardly affected by these.

The leader of the town dresses up as a "man-woman" during the mayday celebration, nearing the later half of the film. It's not mocked or played as a joke but more of a ritualistic celebration. The wording could be slightly alarming, though.

Lots of nudity. The main character witnesses group sex on the ground outside a bar. It's fairly graphic. Partial frontal nudity of a woman is shown as she attempts to seduce the main character. Distance full nudity as the main character watches a group of teen girls dance naked around a fire in a fertility ritual. There's a very explicit song sing by most of the community about one character. There's a children's song that talks about sex. There's also a classroom lesson about phallic symbolism that the main character is rather scandalized by.
