Not really gaslighting but gonna put here (since there isn’t a space for it) the religious woman kind of brainwashing people into doing harmful things for religion could be very triggering for those with religious trauma.

People drink to cope with the first death in the movie. They do not get drunk but it is a notable plot point.

Some dead bodies are preserved in such a way as to appear like mannequins. It’s not intentional, just a byproduct of the way they died.

No character is specifically portrayed as having PTSD, but they are going through a traumatizing situation, so many of them have emotional reactions and likely would have PTSD after the events of the movie

It's really hard to say definitively. Everyone is in an extreme situation reacting in extreme ways. It's not obvious anyone was mentally ill to start with.

There is a storm in the beginning and a lot of flashlights used. I watched this with my photosensitive partner and they were mostly okay.
It's a lot better than shows with lots of gunfire in darkness or police lights.

The boy isn’t ridiculed for crying but he is told he needs to stop crying or he’ll hurt himself as well as told repeatedly to calm down and stop crying. It’s an attempt to calm a frantic child but it’s not a very good one.
