Yes. The corpse of a dog is shown floating in a river toward the end of the movie. There is also dialog halfway through the movie discussing a dead dog, but this is separate from the dead dog shown toward the end. There are two cuts of the movie, and the dog corpse is in the uncut version for sure.

At the beginning of the movie Mark seems to have been using drugs, and Heinrich has a bag of a white powder, presumably cocaine.

Lots of blurred lines in this movie. There are moments of struggle against kissing/touching, and it's also very clear that the character is unable to consent because of her frame of mind (insanity/supernatural forces).
There is a scene depicting sex with a supernatural being. I'm not sure if it's consensual. It is disturbing, though.

Anna cuts her own neck with an electric knife. The wound is not deep and she survives. She is shown with a bandaged neck for several scenes following this.

There is so much screaming. A good majority of the film involves Mark and Anna yelling at each other, and Anna's infamous "subway scene" features her screaming almost the entire way through.
