There aren't really bugs in it, but STEM looks like a centipede in the few scenes it appears in, and Grey calls it a bug when he first sees it. If you're really freaked out by bugs just watch out for when it's on screen I guess.

A head doesn't necessarily get squashed as in pressed together or down, BUT a head does get blown off, and rather graphically too.

Not necessarily mutilation - a character (many are augmented/teched out) uses an implement from his finger to poke a dead character's eye to see his memories.

Sort of? A character is unable to control their body while it does things, so some elements of kidnapping.

No, but at one point or two, an unprepared viewer might think there is, in that someone dead appears to show up (fully visible and solid-looking, in daylight, behaving naturally).

In the scenes where it's shown a character is taking over another character to aid them, the shakey cam personifies/shows this during. It's evident during quite a few scenes, and lasts sometimes for more than 2 minutes. Those with motion sickness might not want to watch this movie.

Jaime, a character in the movie, is non-binary or ambiguously gendered. It's gently mentioned when they ask the main protagonist to don't ask about their gender," to which the protag says "Wasn't gonna."

At the end, the main antagonist is revealed and he manipulates the main character's mind so that he thinks he's imagining everything and has a better reality than what is happening in real life, thus letting the antagonist take over completely and do as he pleases.

There are two car crashes - one in the beginning that sets the whole movie's plot in motion, and another in a high speed car chase, BUT no one is seriously injured OR killed in both of these.

There is no actual person outside of a car or any other vehicle, getting hit by a car or vehicle.

There are car crashes, there are no pedestrians getting hit by cars.
