No, but during a scene in which a woman is being chased and violently attacked by a dog, she tries swatting and pushing it away. This wouldn't be considered abuse, though, because she was the one being abused.

Axes, knives, and other sharp objects are used frequently throughout the film as murder weapons. Notably, towards the end, a woman's arm is chopped off by an axe.

In the beginning, a woman is being chased and harassed by a man on the street. She struggles to open the gate to her apartment complex, but when she finally opens it, the man is right on her heels. To keep him from getting closer, she slams the gate shut on his fingers.

A character's fiance is revealed to be sleeping with another person close to him for an unknown amount of time. I'm not 100% certain if they were still together or not at the start on the film.

SPOILERS: Like the "suicide" entry mentions, we see a man cut his throat with a razorblade, only to find out minutes later that this was a trick and he is still alive.

SPOILER: No one dies by suicide; however, towards the end, Peter fakes his suicide by running a knife across his throat. At the time, the viewer is made to believe that this is real. But later, it is discovered that the knife was dull, and had been rigged to spray fake blood when Peter "sliced" his neck.

No, in fact there's a trans actress in this film from 1982 and she's never insinuated as being anything other than a woman.

The word dyke is used to describe a lesbian character, as well as a few LGBT microaggressions including some biphobia.

It was noticable but not destressing for me personally.

"lesbos" and "dykes" used in a derogatory fashion about a character, and a woman coming onto a man and when he doesn't immediately respond she asks him if he's gay. Both are very short, 1-2 sentence remarks in the first 1/3 of the movie.

In one scene, the detective and his partner are running through the streets with guns at the ready, in search of Peter's stalker. As the partner jogs down the middle of a driving lane, she startles a man in a car and causes him to veer off the road. However, the car stops before hitting anything.
