No but there are a few short scenes of the characters peeping on each other through the broken roof/ through the grate on the lighthouse. Super brief and I don't think intentional.

The two main characters do start to seem like a married couple, where some interactions and conversations could certainly be triggering to someone who has survived an abusive relationship

in a way, yes. robert pattinson's character gets verbally abused, and in one scene slapped pretty early on, but towards the end of the movie he is the main abuser, going as far as killing the other. although the abuse is mutual throughout most of the movie, robert pattinson's character was the initial abused.

Both main characters drink excessively, almost constantly through the second half of the film. In earlier scenes, there are also some scenes of one character pressuring the other to drink, which could be triggering.

[SPOILERS] This scene is very graphic - we see dirt falling onto the victim's chest and face as he struggles to keep speaking and eventually suffocates. Near the end of the film, you'll see one main character leading the other on a leash like a dog; the live burial happens right after that.

[MAJOR SPOILERS!!!] only in the very last shot of the entire movie. there's plenty of blood throughout, but the goriest part is the final shot, where a character is shown twitching and barely breathing with a damaged eye, while seagulls pluck at his exposed intestines.

An ageing character who at one point referred to his "young'uns" dies toward the end. We only get that one mention of his children; we know nothing about them except that he abandoned them long ago. We see no pictures of them or anything. They likely won't even know about his death.

Arguably; characters are infatuated by a mystical “MacGuffin” as a significant plot device, and this influences their behavior in some significant ways, but it’s more obsession than possession. No possession by spirits, demons, etc.

Perhaps. I read that the film was conceived as a ghost story, and to be honest, what with all the hallucinations and general confusing weirdness, I can't say for sure that one of the characters wasn't a ghost from some point onward. My co-watcher said he suspected along the way that the character had actually died. As for me, I found it all a bewildering blur.

Both characters become psychotic, and they get very violent, especially the younger one. However, neither of them has been diagnosed with anything; it's a case of "descending into madness" due to circumstances (cabin fever, you might call it). Whether one or both of them had some mental illness from the start, it's hard to say.

debatably, the entire second half could be considered one big anxiety attack. both characters are frantically fluctuating between emotions, constantly overwhelming each other, shouting at each other, and panicking.

While neither of the characters are canonically gay, there's definitely some subtext that's been confirmed by one of the main actors.

You might argue that mermaids are spoiled, in that the mermaid that appears is malevolent and highly sexualized (genitalia, intercourse), but you shouldn't let children watch the movie anyway! The movie is as far from being a children's movie as a movie can get.

Sad isn’t quite the word for it, but it sure ain’t happy.

Blood splatters on a man when he kills another with an axe, and then you can see the axe in the man's head afterwards. A man is shown being graphically pecked by birds. A man kills a bird by smashing it, resulting in blood splatter. All in black and white.

No one dies by drowning, but a character has visions involving images of drowning.
