no, but the relationship between the two main characters is uncomfortable, with the woman appearing very sensitive/jumpy when the man makes any sudden movements or loud noises, and he forcefully restrains her at one point by pinning her down

Maybe not for spectacle, but for the whole movie she is subjected to terror and then stabbed many times in the end.

James repeatedly ignores Kristen when she says that she’s being watched/threatened/taunted, and instead tells her that she’s just wrong.

Despite being a home invasion/slasher film most of the violence is primarily implied and the scenes where wounds are shown are unpleasant, but short.

Various loud noises such as bangs and screams. A masked man is seen unexpectedly at the backdoor resulting in a jumpscare. The main character is hiding in a closet when a masked woman appears in front of the door resulting in a jumpscare. In another scene, the main character is hiding in a barn using an old radio when one of the masked murderers comes out of nowhere and smashes the radio with an axe. Loud noises occur when a masked woman crashes a truck into the victims’ car.
