Right at the beginning the main character is walking along the road with a plastic bag with a dead cat inside that he's planning to disolve in acid.

He lures a dog out Into the Woods with the intent to kill it, but chickens out last minute and yells at it to go away. Later on, the carcass of a large animal is found, but it is blurry so you can't tell if it's a dog or not. It definitely isn't the same dog though, because it's a different color. It might be a deer

A fish is stabbed, a dog is lured into the woods with intent to do harm but is let go. The dog is yelled at to go away. All other animals were already dead when found, but it’s implied more were killed.

Jeff and his friends go out fishing and despite being told that they needed to release anything they caught, Jeff kills a fish on-screen and gruesomely, saying he wanted to see what its insides looked like.

roadkill: a cat, a possum. Preserve jars for study: baby pig(?), other unclear jars you'd see in a biology class. Unspecified animal bones.

The main character becomes obsessed with a local doctor that jogs a route near Dahmer's house on certain days of the week. He is shown hiding amongst trees/plants and watching the jogger.

A couple are in a verbal disagreement over divorce papers, the woman hits the man in the head with the papers, knocking his glasses off. This causes them to briefly be shown grabbing at each other and arguing.

There is heavy alcoholism with the main character and a vague hint at prescription drug abuse with the main character's mom.

Dahmer develops an alcohol addiction. He is seen drinking heavily, and this habit is referenced to by other characters in the dialogue.

Dahmer slices open a fish with a knife. A character cuts the side of his hand, which is briefly shown, with another knife and mentions how his father slit someone’s throat with it.

School bully gives a kid a wedgie during the first lunchroom scene. Had to turn the movie off after that so I’m not sure if it continues throughout.

*SPOILER ALERT WARNING* The last scene is kidnapping but doesn't show anything more than a consenting hitchhiker getting in a car and the car drives away.

No toys are destroyed, but Dahmer’s dad destroys the young Dahmer’s shed and throws out his bone collection.

No, but there are scenes suggesting a mockery of an autism meltdown.

Although no anxiety attacks specifically are shown, a character’s fake seizures may be similar enough to affect someone

Dahmer and friends repeatedly use problematic language and gestures regarding disabled people. It is done so frequently they refer to it as “doing a Dahmer”

There is ableist and homophobic language used, including slurs. Dahmer also asks a black man insensitive questions about the color of his skin, and how his body compares to Dahmer's body because of it.

Well he doesn’t die in the movie itself but the epilogue does mention the real Jeffrey Dahmer’s death in 1990

A character eerily plays with a gun, recklessly firing it and pointing it at his head.

Since the film deals with the early years of Dahmer’s life, no murders are shown. However, there are dead animals including gory roadkill, a couple of small but bloody injuries and a scene where a fish is sliced apart. Dahmer talks about having a fascination with the insides of people and animals, often referencing surgery and cutting people open.
