The previous comment is not an instance of gaslighting. It could potentially qualify as manipulation, but gaslighting is not portrayed in this film.

There are two instances of amputation- one where you just see the aftermath and one where you see the procedure. With the procedure, you don't see the actual amputation, but you do see a severed arm.

Rapists are tortured. Some folks get consensual, heavy body modification done. Very little of the actual acts are shown. You do hear things, though.

I’d argue there are, but more startling than actually jump scares. First when Mary enters a site, some loud music plays suddenly; and then when she meets a male character in a warehouse, when a cop enters and attacks but you kinda see him coming. Other than that, I don’t recall
