Yes! There is gaslighting! Someone says they told a girl that she was being paranoid for feeling watched and followed. Another scene in which a little girl asks what "that" (a victim screaming) was, the serial killer tells the her he just left the TV on in the basement.

No, but [SPOILER] a victim that survives is interviewed and says how the killer loved her and that he will come back for her and didn't mean to leave her. Soon after she kills herself (only talked about) and in her note she confesses her undying love for her "master"

Corpse of child implied under body blanket for crime scene pictures. An 8 year old’s kidnapping is shown, and it explains that he raped and murdered her, but off camera.

There is direct verbal confirmation of rape, including of children, throughout the movie. There are multiple scenes with naked corpses of women, and a few scenes of torture that are sexualized by the killer. To my memory, there was not any visuals of penetrative rape.

No but there is a brief shot of a post mortem beheading, and another of a decapitated head emplanted in a corpse's stomach.

No, but there are a lot of creepy shots of faces with masks on where you can only see their eyes.

Yes, there is a lot of sexualized abuse and torture. There is a lot shown visually, but even more is described verbally.

Someone is drugged with a cloth+chemical in a up close face shot. There is also a scene in which a victim is bonded crudely and sounds like she is having trouble breathing while she is sobbing. Another clip has a girl choking briefly

Technically yes, but there's only one sentence that mentions it, everything about the death is offscreen, and the child didn't survive either.

To clarify the above comment; no nudity in the shower scene, just the sound of water and you see the shower curtain. It is from the view of the killer outside though, so if you're sensitive to scary stuff around the shower be prepared!

The transitions between tape clips and "documentary" clips have a loud screech-like noise (similar to a Five Night's at Freddy's jumpscare noise) that is very jarring. There is also a lot of sudden yelling towards already upset women

A short clip features bone sawing body smashing/amputation. There are several instances of bones breaking.

Several panic attacks throughout the movie, although they are all during torture clips and not ptsd/past trauma triggered, they are panicked about the current torture/kidnapping they are experiencing.

There is a scene where the killer hides in a closet, and two where a kidnapped girl is forced to be in coffin like boxes

YES! The camera the serial killer uses has horrible quality that frequently changes colour and becomes wavy and static-y. There is also some flashing of images

A lot of misogynistic sentiments are expressed from the killer.

She doesn't die from it, but a woman's head is forcefully held underwater with the intent of hurting and scaring her.
