While not domestic, the fight between Amanda and Eric Matthews is extremely brutal and might be triggering for those who have witnessed or been a victim of domestic violence. (The scene in question starts at the 1:32:55 mark and ends at the 1:37:14 mark)

Addiction

No illegal drug use. However, there is legal prescription antidepressant use, but it is portrayed/edited like an "addiction". Could be triggering for some similarities to prescription drug addiction.

Amanda young, one of John’s apprentices, is VERY heavily coded to have borderline personality disorder. After she was traumatized by being put through a trap, John essentially manipulated her into becoming dependent on him, making her his apprentice. In this movie, she attacks multiple people and even eventually kills someone while breaking down, because she’s afraid John is going to abandon her. Can be very triggering to see Amanda as a villain if you have bpd.

Jeff completes the game alive, but everyone else involved, including his wife who was revealed to be the doctor forced to help John, die. Before Jigsaw dies, he gives Jeff a tape informing him that his daughter has been kidnapped and he needs to go through another game to save her. The movie ends with this revelation.

Danger of drowning at one point-- someone is tied at the bottom of a pool filling slowly with liquid, gets to the point where just his lips and nose are above the surface but he's saved just in time
