There is a scene where he almost kills a kitten but doesn't go through with it.

The main character graphically stomps a homeless man's dog to death (somewhat from a distance, yelping is very audible). This is very upsetting and early in the film. The same character nearly shoots a cat, but does not. (SPOILER WARNING BELOW) It is later revealed that some events may not have actually happened, which would include the dog's death.

This says other than a dog, cat, or horse - seek first question at top for answers about the dog scene and how to skip it

It's assumed so, it's not seen on screen. The main character tells a person of a different character's life in oddly specific detail.

This is a complicated one due to the main character being confused and unaware of who he actually is but characters in the film call him by other names and say that he hasn't actually done stuff he vividly remembers doing, all of this is ambiguous due to his deteriorating mental state

A character gets drunk, but that's about it.

The hooker who gets lured into Patrick's apartment for the 2nd time, at first declines, stating that the last time she left she was hardly able to walk, implying she was sexually tortured in some fashion.

[SPOILERS, scene descriptions] There is a scene after Patrick has sex with two sex workers where he opens a drawer with knives and a wire coat hanger, and immediately after the sex workers are seen leaving his apartment limping and injured (what he did is left to the imagination). Towards the end of the movie, a journal is shown with explicit drawings of genital mutilation and torture, which was extremely triggering. I recommend looking away when [SPOILERS] the secretary sits to read the journal.

While there are eerie and suspenseful scenes, there's never any instance of a sudden cut to a shocking image or a sudden loud noise. It all flows nicely into its horrid imagery.

Several times throughout the film, you can hear blood splatter and other disturbing sounds one might hear when well..committing a murder.

Medical instruments are shown briefly and imply malicious use, but no on-screen use is shown.

There is no hospital scene, but a character does mention how her friend had to be sent to the hospital because of how badly Bateman cut her up.

Bateman's voice might trigger it, kind of dry mouth ASMR-y

Bateman tells a girl he is on a diet, and that he can "always be thinner." Just a passing comment, though

regardless of the end and what it might "change" in the events of the movie, the main character 100% has an antisocial personality disorder and is violent, has harmful behaviors and is depicted as a killer. (tw: he calls himself a "psychopath")

While there aren't anxiety attacks there are still quite a few mental breakdowns.

Not explicitly body dysmorphia, but Patrick is obsessed with his body and appearance. For example, when offered food by Jean, he says he’s on a diet, and when Jean expresses shock and tells Patrick he doesn’t need to lose weight, he replies “you can always look better. Be thinner.”

The camera is slightly shaky in some scenes where Bateman is running or chasing someone, but not enough to cause any harm to viewers. There's also a slight vertigo scene where a character is running down the stairs while the camera spins.

In one scene while the main character and his friend are at a club, there are flashing lights. It lasts for a few seconds but they're there.

There are bits of Patrick Bateman narrating but it’s not clear if he’s actually speaking to us directly

The first on-screen murder in the movie is Patrick Bateman killing a black homeless man and his dog.

F slur is used quite a few times in their business friends chats. Uncomfortable, but not used in a direct or violent homophobic attack

He says a prostituir is his cousin (she’s not) and drugs the prostituye and his friend and makes them smash to watch which isn’t really incest but just weird

Most of the sex is consensual, but there's two scenes where the same hooker is bribed into sex with Bateman and other women for Bateman's pleasure. The second time, the hooker tries to walk away, but he lures her into his car with money.

Not only is a character homeless, he is also the first person to die onscreen, and the main character later claims to have killed 5-10 homeless people in total.

It’s uncertain, but whatever the case, the main character definitely isn’t happy by the end.
