Ahhh!!! If you’re a cat person once it gets to the scene where he gets out of the tub and the older man is asleep on the toilet - cover your eyes and ears for about 3 minutes.

The antagonist of the film hunts down the antagonist once he learns her identity. He enters her home and breaks things - could be triggering.

The wounds in this movie are... disturbingly realistically portrayed. One man is repeatedly shot and then, while still alive and begging, drug around by a bullet hole in his cheek. Akin to a fish on a hook.

No cutting that I noticed, but there are some scars that look like cut marks across the main character's neck that she received as a child. The creature does accidentally scratch one of the characters when startled, causing claw marks across their arm.

The creature is seen gasping for oxygen several times in the film because his lungs only work out of water for a limited time

The antagonist tells the story of Samson twice - mentioning that Samson had his eyes burned and mutilated in Biblical times.

Y’all. If someone loses a finger, they had to break a bone in the process.

Technically yes, as one character who possibly dies off-screen is a father.

Quite a bit of nudity (mostly from main character) in this film. She is shown naked in a tub masturbating twice. She gets naked again and gets in the shower with the creature. She's also naked again with him in the bathroom shortly after.

Couple of times you think someone might be about to vomit, but they never do. I didn't notice anyone spitting, though I could be wrong.

A cattle prod is used as torture, but no therapy is involved.

Shouldn't we consider the scene where the bad guy torns his own rotten fingers out self harm?

There is one scene where they say the word "n*gro" in television on what seems to be a news report. There are also several uncomfortable period-accurate racist scenes against black americans.

No, but this movie does show a homophobic scene. A gay man is told to leave a restaurant (this movie does take place in 1950's America).

No slurs, but a character is homophobic to a gay man.

a white bad guy uses a bad term for jewish people, and refers to anti-semitism in a pretty dismissive way

There is nudity. There are two female masturbation scenes. There is a heterosexual s*x scene. Anda major plot is the consensual sexual/romantic relationship between the fish man and the female main character.

The villain has sex with his wife that is initially very consensual, but when she starts to express discomfort, he covers her mouth with a grotesquely wounded and bloody hand and keeps going.

A primary source of gore is one of the characters having his fingers bitten off, reattached, and them subsequently rotting off throughout the film (in one scene, he rips them off and throws them at another character). In another scene, a character shoots another through the cheek and sticks his finger through it, pulling him up by the wound. Very squicky, not for the squeamish.

Someone is underwater for a good amount of time, they are definitely *not* drowning though and are in fact quite clearly having a nice time
