A dead armidillo is shown first shot, there are many bones and carcasses showed throughout but most are hard to distinguish what sort of animal

There are two scenes where someone is cut with a razor or knife. The scene around the dinner table involves real cutting as the effect didn't work so Gunnar Hansen removed the tape and did the cut for real. There are also scenes with people and meat hooks, however these are not graphic.

Perhaps not while people were alive, but there are a lot of limbs detached from bodies throughout.

Pretty graphic torture scenes throughout, especially at the end with Sally at the table.

Heavily implied throughout, especially in a shot of the old man's barbeque.

no eye mutilation, but there are uncomfortably close shots of eyes in case that bothers you

Fingers are cut, and the beginning shows closeups of a decaying corpse including the fingers.

A character seems to break or at least severely injure her leg after jumping out a window.

There is only one, it's at the second half of the movie- it's brief, but definitely surprising.

When a character runs to the gas station, the attendant acts as though he is going to help her and nothing is wrong, when in fact, he is planning to kidnap her.

Briefly, while the protagonist is tied up, the camera flails for a second.

Use of the words "coon" and "nap-headed" but directed at a person who appears white.

Not on screen, but the radio recording in the beginning discusses a person who committed suicide by hanging.

Lots of shots of a decomposed face in the opening, two decomposing bodies (similar style of decomp to what you get in Bones) Blood from surface wounds, significant but not gratuitous
