A character is implied to be a pedophile, and later there is a scene where they are talking to a little girl in a creepy, grooming manor and attempting to get her to come close to him. They are stopped but it is an uncomfortable scene. At the end the little girl is physically (not sexually) attacked but is unharmed.

Other than a few that you see quickly fly by because so much of the movie was outside. Bugs aren't a featured part of the movie.

Although a ghost is haunting characters, an apparition is never seen, only a stationary scarecrow. At the very end, the ghost scarecrow moves on its own.

A stereotypically autistic-coded character is wrongfully accused of harming a child, and is chased down by a gang of “vigilantes” who kill him. It is implied that they have been stalking him, verbally abusing him, and planning on harming him for some time before the events of the movie also.

As I stated in the “autism specific abuse” category. Also the autistic-coded character’s mother says he is no older than a child in his mind. She means no harm by the statement and is attempting to protect him by saying it, but it could still be triggering to those who’ve been had similar things said about them.

Toward the end of the movie, yes. It's not a very graphic crash, and nobody is injured as a result.

Not much blood and gore, mostly just bloody bullet holes on screen for a moment, and another set of bloody wounds at the end.
