the scarecrow scenes have a lot of hissing cockroaches (if you wanna get specific), and the whole Red Dot scene is all about spiders and body horror

One of the characters is asked “are you drunk again?” by his mom so it’s implied he may be an alcoholic but it’s very brief, not a focus, and not mentioned again

Not exactly amputation but there is a scene where various body parts (arms, legs, head, and torso) fall down a fireplace and reconnect forming one whole body . In another scene the monster gets hit by a car and falls apart, reconnecting again. Not technically amputation but still may be distressing If amputation bothers you

Kind of? The main character is dragged to another room against her will by several people, it isn't technically kidnapping but might resemble a similar situation.

for just a few scenes one of the characters, Auggie, dresses as a Pierrot for Halloween. not quite a clown but very clown like (he doesn't have any make up, or a nose on, however)

Several, of different kinds. Some of them, who are in a past that sort of blends with the present, look and act 100% like living persons, whereas other are scary-looking (whitish and with strange eyes etc.).

The main characters go to a hospital and listen to recording of someone being shocked by electro therapy.

There is no autism specific abuse. However, one of the main plot points of the movie is a girl with albinism who's repeatedly abused by her family for the way she looks.

The girl with albinism that wrote the stories is repeatedly blamed by her family for crimes she didn't do, to where all the townsfolk believe she committed them and try to stay away from her. She's even sent to a mental institution by her family to try and convince her she did them through shock therapy and other methods.

no, but there is plenty of body horror, and a character sees herself as another for a brief moment, since it's a flashback and the directors wanted to show "hey, she's flashing back as this character!" via ghosty magic

Someone pricks their own finger, drawing blood, but that's for a "practical" reason, not out of mental/emotional suffering.

it’s not so much a joke, but they describe a monster as a fat woman.

the closest thing is the family abusing a girl because she was born with albinism

SPOILERS AHEAD. The ending is as happy as it can be, but characters die and do not come back to life.

A major plot point of a movie is a woman who was abused in the past. A later scene depicts the protagonist experiencing said womans memories of abuse. Nothing too graphic.

Characters are stabbed but no blood is ever shown. Tiny drops appear from the book but nothing overly graphic.

Not buried alive per se, but one character dies by being kind of absorbed into a monster.
