No idea why people are saying no. A character gets their teeth pulled out, some split in middle, and are shown in detail to the camera immediately after, but this might only be in the directors cut

A Couple of minor scares, but most of them is really just a loud sound effect with no background music

Total Jump Scare count: 5 (5 Minor)

(Minor) (12:33) Andrew turns around and Steve suddenly scares him (As a Joke)

(Minor) (14:17) The Screen suddenly flashes a few times after it goes black

(Minor) (32:18) An Aeroplane speeds by in the sky, startling the boys

(Minor) (1:05:31) After Andrew grabs his abusive dad, the hospital suddenly implodes

(Minor) (1:11:31) The apartment suddenly gets destroyed by Andrew and Matt fighting

Andrew almost definitely has some sort of undiagnosed mental illness (anxiety attacks at the very least) and after a significant amount of time with his powers he begins to turn them on people who are hurting/abusing him. So it's justified, but extant.

No but it is a found-footage film. Characters talk to the camera but they're not talking to the audience.
