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.

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.

Yes, by several people, though the signs are subtle and extremely easy to miss if you don't know they're there. Random stangers smile at the children as if they know them, very quiet footsteps are heard in the house before the family actually enters, the breath of an unknown person is visible outside the house at night, and in a brief night shot of the house towards the end, multiple people are standing outside the house.

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.

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

SPOILERS: One character asks another to set fire to an artifact which they believe will save the family. The second character refuses, and the first burns the artifact, inadvertently killing the other.

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.

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

You can hear the child’s head be decapitated in a thud, a character saws their head off and you can hear the sawing and their body drop to the floor.

And how! The main indicator of Charlie's presence is her tic of clicking her tongue. It is repetitive and agonizingly grating.

One character discusses almost committing self-immolation in their sleep, but does not go through with it. This same character later tries to burn a haunted artifact, which they believe will kill them but spare their family, but again this does not happen. Also, it's somewhat unclear if this was the intention, but a character does at one point jump from a window to escape a monster.

Several dreams and events occur which suggest a character has PTSD from severe trauma, but the dreams and events are usually shown as having a supernatural cause rather than mental illness. An actor later reported he had PTSD from making the film.

A character (who dies in the beginning of the film and is only shown in photos) is diagnosed with DID and had some abusive tendencies. Given the context of the film however, it’s very likely that this character was possessed and never actually had the disorder.

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.

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.

While not an extreme case, scenes showcasing the inside of the little tree-house at the end of the movie could feel claustrophobic to some people.

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

The first violent scene involves a character driving a car and then trying to swerve around a dead animal in the road and later stopping. I don’t quite remember if there’s specifically the sound of tires screeching, but it’s very possible.

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.
