SPOILER: The titular character, as a child, cuts a duck's leg off and puts it back in the water to watch it drown. PETA, however, claims that the scene meets ethical treatment for animals, and that the leg was made of silicone. Still sounds iffy to me.

Yes, in the ‘4th incident,’ the antagonist appears to be in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. He bullies her (psychologically), tortures her (physically), and then murders her. You DO see him cut off one of her breasts, and it does look very detailed and realistic. At least you did in the version I saw.

A duckling is mutilated with a pair of pliers and placed back into the water to drown. PETA has confirmed only special effects were used for the scene, and has defended the scene as an accurate depiction of the animal cruelty performed by young serial killers.

Time stamp for the duckling scene is roughly 45:00-45:40 (in the version on Hulu). Contextually it is during the 3rd incident, during a childhood flashback. In the flashback, watch while the men are cutting grass in the meadows, but pause when they stop to sharpen their scythes. Skip forward around 40-45 seconds until the flashback is over and you’re in the clear.

Several dead birds are shown as hunting trophies. You also see a few animals get shot from a hunting scene before that. There’s paintings of many dead animals but none are super graphic or realistic, definitely paintings. And then there’s the incident where the duckling is abused, it stuggles but isn’t dead.

Almost all of the violence in the movie is against women but nothing has explicitly sexual motives, Jack is never seen being aroused by any of the violence.

THE CUT ABSOLUTELY IS SHOWN (of the breasts). The commenter saying the cut isn’t shown at all is INCORRECT. Not fully, but it is shown deep and graphically for a quick shot which is shown twice. You also see her in another scene boobs off.

100% safe, the only thing somewhat seems worth mentioning is at one point he says "i dont feel so good verge" but all that happened was he just has acid reflex while the screen is black the whole conversation, until the epilogue where him saying "i dont feel so good" is shown without the black screen but again nothing happens

a character praises fascist figures like hitler as an "icon" while scenes of imprisoned survivors and dead bodies piled at nazi concentration camps play. nothing specifically antisemitic is stated (no slurs), but it is clear the character has an admiration for genocide, especially at the size and scale of the holocaust.

There isn’t sexual content. There is literally kissing and thats it. Unless you people are staying that women’s breasts are inherently sexual, even though nothing sexual goes on in the scene where her breasts are out. I think this is an issue with peoples perception of the female body that they’ve all classified it as ‘sexual content’ just because a woman was topless. Get a grip please.

The film is very gory over all, and the gore looks very realistic.

So, idk what's with y'all just absolutely lying but theres literally multiple clips of people drowning or about to drown.
These time stamps are based off of Hulu:
1. 1:49:02-1:50:00 (multiple scenes)
2. 2:13:00-2:14:02
and then after this, they're in this cave system thats halfway underwater. Neither drowns but they do go underwater so, I'd skip past this part entirely if it's triggering to you. (It's all over at 2:15:50)

there is a pretty drawn out sequence where the antagonist shows off hunting rifles to two young boys, explains the act of hunting, and eventually forces the children and their mother to flee while he snipes them from a hunting blind. a police officer is shot to death in another scene. in another drawn out sequence, a character taunts a group of kidnapped people about shooting them all through the head with a single bullet. this doesn't end up taking place, but he goes through a lot to setup the rifle and find the right rounds for it.
