No, but in the beginning when Sidney arrives the girl who is with her shows her a window display and says she "threatened to kill the owner's cat if he didn't get it right". It is played as a joke. Caught me off guard so I thought it should be mentioned.

Characters who are injured are sometimes unconscious before they get up again. One character in particular was beat over the head with an object until they passed out (the character isn't killed by this).

You can probably assume bones were broken from some of the trauma the deceased characters endure, but there are no cracking sounds or obviously broken bones from what I saw.

A character digs their thumb into another character's wound by their eye near the end of the movie. It may look like the character's thumb was in the eye, but it doesn't seem like that was actually the case. Still may trigger you if you're sensitive to eye injuries though.

It is a slasher movie with a very high body count, in line with the rest of the franchise. Not the most violent of the franchise but has the most gore.

yes, but it's very brief and might go unnoticed. a cop makes a comment about wishing a minor was his girlfriend - no one calls this out or points out how weird it is in the movie and the line is only a few seconds. also in the first scene an underage character's boobs are mentioned

Killer injures self to frame someone else, it's a pretty lengthy scene involving stabbing, face scratching, hair being ripped out, running face first into glass picture frames, and ending with the character jumping onto a glass table, breaking it. She staggers across a room, collapses by another character, and is shown bleeding, maybe with bits of broken glass in skin.

It's not actually certain if he was or not, it's not confirmed either way. Regardless, there's no focus on his sexuality beyond the line "No, you can't, there's rules! I'm gay! I'm gay, if it helps!" before he's killed, as there was discussion earlier in the movie re: gay characters not dying in horror.
