About 30min in there's a blurry police video of a man killing an animal. Later context implies the animal is a goat but I could easily see someone thinking the animal was a dog. It's a very disturbing approx 2min of the film

The wife is majorly gaslighted, including about a SA (although that is unintentional based on the MC’s understanding of reality)

There's a man who kills animals in ritual sacrifice. We see a blurry video of him killing an animal (later revealed to be a goat), caged chickens, a fridge full of blood and body parts, a bloody tongue presumably from a cow or horse, and more. Basically, once lomax goes downstairs in Harlem to meet his client, just turn away until the next scene.

We also see a ton of meat closeups.

About 30 minutes in there is a video of police running into a warehouse and there are men cutting a sheep’s head off. I looked away when I saw so I’m not sure if anything else is seen..

We also see a ton of meat closeups and a brief scene in a chinatown market with piles of dead fish.

See the other comment about the teen in the opener + the MC’s wife is assaulted by the pseudo-antagonist but gaslighted by her husband about it (on accident). She reveals her body as proof and it’s graphic, but the assault itself is not shown.

I would say consent is withdrawn.
Keanu Reeves hallucinates his wife is someone else during sex and changes his speed/ passion and the wife begins to tell him no/ stop and he stops. She asks where he was and he says "right here". She tells him "no you aren't" and they break apart.

Also a scene with a small child with blood and guts all over its hands.

Many closeups of dead animal parts.

It’s implied she can’t have children because they took it away from her. It’s very graphically revealed in a hallucination
