Several characters mention that they (or their lackies) have been following you and know what you're up too. Heather mentions someone has been following her as well.

There is a quest around halfway/later in the game about a snuff film involving a woman being terrorised and killed, as well as a short dungeon involving the studio where snuff films are made. The scene shown is short and not very detailed considering the graphics of the game.

An early game quest involves going to the home of a drug dealer and decorations throughout the game may imply drug use, but there is no direct drug use on screen.

One of the ways of obtaining of blood points is feeding on rats. If you play as a Nosferatu, it's your only way of nutrition besides buying blood packs.

There is mention of a character's father abusing them as a child, but it is not incredibly detailed. (However the way it is explained is in remarks, so it is described insensitively.) This dialogue isn't required, however, and can be skipped.

There is a vampire that must eat flesh to survive, and they are shown doing so. It could be argued that it isn't technically cannibalism since they are a vampire, but I think it's at least close enough to warrant mentioning.

There are plenty of opportunities for the player to be killed by fire or sunlight, usually bursting into flames when doing so. There is also implication that all the NPCs in a certain area--that have not been killed by the player yet--will die in a fire.

Nosferatu can be considered body horror due to their twisted forms, but there are also certain vampires with body modifications that are intense enough to be body horror. There are also monsters implied to have been humans once that either have gaping wounds or general body horror.

One bossfight is against a mad doctor named Gimble who is all about amputations and prostetics. He attacks you with a severed arm. After the fight you can pick it up and use it as a weapon yourself.
An NPC metioned the mad doctor cutting of their finger.

There is a required dungeon that takes place in the mansion of a vampire that has turned it into an "asylum" [sic] to watch "the insane" and such. The depictions of the patients in this mansion are outdated, but meant to be neutral. (Although they are enemies.)

There is a character with DID who makes threats with a gun, and one version of the protagonist is part of an infamously mentally ill vampire clan. Combat is essential to this game and you can make threats of violence regularly, so the Malkavian protagonist counts.

The player character can have s*x with some characters, but it's not shown onscreen.
In Chinatown you can see a woman giving oral s*x to a man.
Most of the female characters, player and NPC, are sexualized. There are prostitutes (though you can't have s*x with them) and strip dancers.
At one point of the game you have to read a diary of a prostitute and may learn about sadomasochist tendencies of one of the characters.
In one of the optional sidequests one of the minor NPC turns out to be engaged in an act of b********y though it only gets known from the news.
There is an organization which tries to bring the end of the world by transmitting an infection through sexual intercourses.

In an optional side quest, the player is tasked with proving that a celebrity is not as great as she seems. After the side quest is completed, the player returns to the quest giver and will find out (through a newspaper) that the celebrity was filmed having some sort of intercourse with a llama. It's not detailed at all.
