Jake's dog is seen shaking itself off at the front door at one point. a few minutes later, one brief shot in Jake's childhood bedroom shows what appears to be an urn with the dog's face on it. the film's events are shown in a way that makes the progression of time very unclear.

*huge spoilers*

The movie revolves around a mans obsession with a woman he met very briefly. He imagines a fantasy life with her, and imagery of invasion of privacy is used to display this.

The main character of the film is gaslighted in an extreme and violating way for much of the film, although I suppose this is up to interpretation. See other comments!

It's not abuse, it's simply mentioned that a character had a decent amount of wine at dinner.

*spoilers*

The main character of the film is pressured into some uncomfortable situations. The reason I answer no is that the twist of the film explains this and it isn’t quite what it seems, but it still may be triggering for some to watch.

There’s no mutilation, but there is a brief shot of a toe that seems to be missing half a toe nail. It’s an old man who’s toe has not been maintained well and is pretty gross. Not much, but worth mentioning!

“Kidnapping” isn’t the word, but a woman spends almost the entire movie asking her boyfriend to take her home, and he keeps making stops and stalling until they are driving late at night. It’s plot relevant and not kidnapping, but it could be triggering as the woman becomes more and more anxious and uncomfortable as this progresses.

There is one jumpscare in the film when the two main characters are kissing in a stationary car. A quick cut to someone watching them with a spooky but not too loud sound.

-SPOILER?- This can be debated, but the mother and dog could be considered ghosts, as the dog appears multiple times and acts really odd (shaking head for long periods of time, reappearing and disappearing), and is then later shown to be in an urn, as well as the mother being on her death bed in one scene but completely fine in others. As the passage of time is distorted, and the mother is dead at the time this narrative is constructed, she could be considered a ghost.

SPOILERS.

The film's title, "I'm Thinking of Ending Things", is entirely about the suicidal ideation of an old man who fantasizes about what could have been. He kills himself by allowing himself to catch hypothermia. It's a complicated movie at times, but I felt that the fact that it was a suicide was very clear.
