Despite all the yes's here I don't recall any damage to anyone's teeth being shown, and it is something I have an issue with so I'd probably remember. There were a ton of fight scenes and some people prooobably got hit in the mouth is isn't specifically shown at least not graphically.

Eddie blacks out and wakes up in an MEI, also blacks out and wakes up in Carlton Drake’s torture chamber. Hosts black out when the symbiote is exiting their body.

There is human experimentation, some of the subjects die in a gruesome way.
Some of them are tortured with high frequency sounds which hurts the symbiotes and (presumably) the hosts too.

It's especially awful with the first human trial with the symbiote. He literally screams and sounds like he is in extreme pain until he dies. It sounds like his bones are breaking clearly. There was also heavy manipulation from the CEO directing the experiment (comparing the homeless person to a child sacrifice in the bible).

Chewing noises after venom attaches to Eddie in his apartment and in the restaurant. Eddie eats rancid chicken. Crunching/chewing noises at the Malaysian market when the woman/symbiote eats an eel. The yellow symbiote is very trypophobia inducing as well if that upsets you.

while it's under different circumstances than a typical eating disorder, and character does binge and purge and suffers from a very disordered appetite. There is also a great deal of food waste and unsanitary consumption.

You could argue that Venom is constantly in Eddie’s head. At the start of the movie, he wouldn’t know this. When Venom first talks, he says “don’t open the door” right before Eddie’s door is knocked on. He looks outside and nobody is there, but it was a trap to get him to let his guard down. Carlton’s men storm the apartment.

There is an extended car chase scene, with at least a dozen vehicles damaged.
