Mrs. Lovett talks, or sings, about how a fellow pie shop owner uses the neighbors cats as meat for her pies. It's because the price of meat is high. You never actually see any cats being killed or used as meat.

The only dogs in the movie are in the background. And they are alive and well.

Mrs Lovett’s entire bakery is crawling with bugs. One crawls out of a pie.

We are supposed to cheer on the young Anthony who falls for Johanna while she’s staring out her window, but his “love song” is like a stalking anthem: "I'll steal you, Johanna, I'll steal you. Do they think that walls can hide you? Even now I'm at your window. I am in the dark beside you, Buried sweetly in your yellow hair. I feel you, Johanna And one day, I'll steal you." 😳

Mrs. Lovett lies to Sweeney, allowing him to think his wife killed herself even though she knows Lucy is still alive. Does that count?

A boy (toby) who grew up in a work house and was taken on my singor Pirelli abuses him quite often with mentions of Lashings and we even see the boy get kicked off a stage and get his hands cut open by a Sharpe blade

The Beadle uses snuff (tobacco that you snort). It's only in one scene and it's brief.

A kid, probably 8-12 years old, drinks alcohol and passes out. An adult gave him the alcohol. Mrs. Lovett give Sweeney Todd alcohol to cope with... Disappoinment

I guess it's not really excessive but the whole plot of the movie is that Sweeney Todd slits peoples throats and they get put into pies. When he slits their throats a load of fake blood is shown and it's kinda obvious that it is fake but it may still be triggering

The whole premise of the movie is of a barber who kills people by cutting their throats whilst shaving them.

The premise is that people are killed, baked into pies, and sold to unknowing customers.

A character is shut in a hot oven and burns to death within seconds. The sequence itself is fairly quick and not extremely graphic but is certainly enough to make some viewers uncomfortable.

We don’t see it but there is a severed finger or a thumb in a pie.

One murder is done with many slashes to the throat, causing a slow death.

The judge holds Joanna in his care and even romanticizes her, but I’m not sure if that’s considered kidnapping

Sweeney never cheats on his wife. Mrs Lovett fantasizes about the two of them getting married in an imagined musical number, but is clearly completely uninterested in her, even in her imagination

No, though a character spits out a good amount of blood.

There's a few sounds that I found a little disturbing, especially the sound of people's skulls cracking when they're dumped down Sweeney Todd's chute.

Few things. Lovett tells Sweeney that his wife Lucy poisons herself, she doesn't die from this, but it's clear she was trying to kill herself and he assumes she does. Also, at the end, Sweeney allows Toby to slit his throat, which isn't technically suicide, but he did absolutely nothing to stop this when he easily could have.

No, but Todd sings about how everyone (including himself) deserves to die.

We are told that Mrs Lovett's husband died due to over-eating.

Sweeney presumably has PTSD from being in prison for fifteen years. He talks about there being "ghosts" and "shadows" everywhere and lives in the past. His wife also has PTSD, as the other comment mentions

There are looks towards the camera, but these exist outside of the fourth wall.

There is a baby in Todd's brief flashback, whose pictures are shown in the film, and there is a baby and wife waiting with one of Todd's customers.

Implied rape, though not shown in details. And somewhat graphic talk about female sex workers around the world.

It is a very short scene and it doesn't show much but it is implied that Sweeney Todds wife was r*ped.

It's one of the main parts of the movie, as Todd really wants to kill Turpin, and many are killed before then.
