+ Montage in very beginning of film wherein shots of stripped cow and pig skulls are shown. Lobsters and cooked meats are shown on the platform throughout the movie. + Throughout the film, the eating of snails is brought up as a symbolic metaphor and used to justify cannibalism. This comparison may be distressing to vegan/vegetarians. + Dog death. SKIP (50:39-51:08) DETAILS FOLLOW SCROLL TO NEXT "+" TO AVOID: The character Miharu kills Imoguiri's "sausage dog" (dachshund) Ramesses II. The killing is done off-screen but Imoguiri is clearly distraught. There is a graphic shot of evidence of the murder. It is brief but upsetting. As the film goes on, it is clear that this vicious killing has damaged Imoguiri irreparably. + At around the (55 minute mark), Imoguiri refuses to eat from the platform, stating it's Ramesses II's turn to eat. As a dachshund owner, this scene was particularly hard-hitting. At (56:17) it's shown Imoguiri has become a victim of suicide by hanging. + Around 53:41 are shots of snails, first alive and then being prepared as a dish for the platform. In the following scene, hands are seen tearing at various dishes made from animals, obviously meant to be grotesque and disgusting. The main character finds the snails at 55:10 and eats them.

The main character is punched repeatedly in the face and after that constantly has blood dripping from his mouth, but it is not obvious that his teeth are damaged.

Yes, multiple characters have on-screen anxiety attacks. The Platform environment is very traumatizing to many characters

No, there are no eating disorders, but there is heavy emphasis on eating and gluttony.

+ There are repeated mentions throughout film of people "choosing death" over their situation. Several bodies are seen falling down the shaft of the hole. + SKIP (56:17-56:47) Imoguiri becomes a victim of suicide by hanging. + (SKIP 58:35) Goreng retrieves a shard of glass from the platform but uses it to scratch notches into the wall to count the days.

A female character voluntarily enters the prison, not knowing the extent of the conditions. There is a conversation about her having been brainwashed by the Administration.

A good portion of the film is shot using a handheld camera so there is quite a bit of motion/swaying particularly in tense scenes.

The movie is in Spanish, so I am unsure what is considered a slur, but the black man in the movie is referred to as 'negro' or something similar.
