The death is not shown on screen. The camera briefly shows the aftermath (not bloody, just a small furry stillness) but if you're not paying attention you could easily miss what it's showing you.

A pigeon flies into a window, and a character cuts off the pigeon's head with a pair of scissors.

there's not exactly eye mutilation but there is a scene in which a character is possesed and his eye is breifly shown very bloodshot and as if it's about ti pop out.

A character has a seizure and injures their face on a desk - it is not a medical seizure, but is rather a coercive supernatural event. However, other characters in the scene believe it to be a seizure

Not specifically the teeth, but a character's mouth gets bloodied up pretty badly after taking a beating.

Not exactly squashed but one character's head gets severely mutilated by an accident involving a utility pole and another character smashes his head on a desk repeatedly.

there is a graphic depiction of a child's death as well as multiple of the dead body, including a scene of a mother finding her child's body. there is also another character who mentions her son and grandson's deaths but those arent shown.

Possession is a central theme of the film as a demon attempts to find a suitable vessel. Several characters are compelled to act in bizarre ways during fits of possession before one finally becomes permanent host to the entity

There are, but surprisingly only very few. Most startling things were seeing a character getting startled by the soft clicking sound. These didn't even feel like they were meant to be junpscares but many people in the theatre startled the first couple times.

Yes, although not by a human, it could be argued that the family (and one character in particular) is being stalked by a supernatural force.

A character drools for a good part of the movie. About 4 minutes worth.

There's a fair number of instances where characters self-harm in bizarre ways (think: by possession rather than by volition). Most are graphic/bloody.

A central AFAB character shares their body and spirit with a male demonic force. This character wears baggy oversized clothes in order to hide their figure is implied to have conflict over their gender and takes on a male form throughout the course of the film. Whether this is their partly own feelings or exclusively that of the male demon is left unstated.

there is a very graphic depiction of a suicide by decapitation. also someone jumps out of a window and falls to their death. there is also mention of a character's brother and father commiting suicide years before the movie takes place.

One of the characters neglect and have a distaste for their child, who is implied to have autism or another learning disability.

We watch a character hysterically explain what she's been through during the film, and another character ignores her emotional pleas and clearly blames her.

No, but there is a mention of a grandmother breastfeeding her grandchild which the mother didn't want, which could be triggering to some.

One of the children shown has social issues. In a classroom scene, the teacher pushes her to finish her test in a way that could draw negative attention to this. Later, the mother yells at her, saying, "are you some kind of idiot," for displaying the same behavior. The same character's art is also called the r word

Yes. The car itself is not damaged, but the scene is horrific and a character dies. *EDIT* This site is for people who are upset by certain events in media. If someone has prior fear of/bad experiences with car crashes, this scene is almost sure to feed into that or upset them. THAT is the measure. THAT is why this scene falls into the category of car crash. It is car-accident-related trauma and there are not enough categories to nitpick what exactly goes in. The more informed people with specific fears can be going into a movie, the better.

No characters are shown drowning, but a supporting character mentions that two of their family members (one being a child) died by drowning.
