Not deliberately gaslighted by another person but the main character struggling to tell fact from reality and feeling like she's losing her sanity is a core plot element.

A raven is sacrificed at a table where people are performing some sort of ritual at the start of the movie, and I immediately turned it off.

A raven is killed onscreen at the very beginning, and a doll made from a stuffed rabbit is found in a cupboard.

Maybe? One of the main characters hurries to his room and is having odd symptoms that look like be could be having a seizure... but it possibly could have been a panic attack? I'm honestly not sure.

A child doesn't die in the film, but two children die before the film begins and investigating those deaths is the core plot.

This comment should be removed for giving away a key part of the film, when saying "Yes" could have sufficed.

When the main character opens up a secret cupboard, she finds a distinctly racist doll meant to be a caricature of a black person. While it is not hate speech, it is racist imagery that I feel should have a warning.

Some semi-nudity and a relatively tasteful non-graphic sex scene, with only before and after shown.

I am confused by the phrasing of this question but it does have a happy ending!
