It’s implied. Anyone sensitive to dog pain sounds or crying etc should be mindful of both scenes with the lab and the Boston terrier. Nothing explicit or graphic tho.

Yes, very much so. Choking, and offscreen torture. All instances are because of the mirror controlling people who otherwise loved eachother, if that makes it any better. I guess that makes it worse, actually.

The mirror itself is able to manipulate mentally people and frequently makes the characters doubt their own sanity.

Yes, two dogs. Nothing is seen on camera but they can be heard. Both were 'eaten' by the mirror (vanished), one of them only being implied to be, visually he escaped the house.

Not on screen, but a victim of the mirror being having been burnt to death was mentioned.
On screen, a photo of a woman's face who had eaten through a live power line was briefly held up to the camera, her entire mouth around the lips area is exposed.

Slight spoilers:

The dad picks at his fingernails until they bleed, and is shown ripping them off explicitly. Later you see his hand with no nails, still bloody.

Yes, but the people in question aren't aware of it until after the fact because of the mirror warping their surroundings (e.g. biting into a light bulb because seconds ago it was an apple).

there is a character who becomes mentally ill because of violence/trauma, not the other way around. He is shown to be recovered and to his senses before being re-introduced to the mirror.
