I believe drug addiction was mentioned in the back story of the *spoiler* sloth victim, but it isn’t actually depicted.

The aftermath of a forced rape is shown. A woman is brutally killed during it, and the man forced at gunpoint to rape her is shown recounting the story while extremely traumatized and crying.

Rape is not shown on screen but the after math is. A man is forced at gunpoint to rape a woman with a knife strap-on. She dies in the process but he lives and recounts what happened while hyperventilating. Neither him nor the woman consented to the act and both are rape victims in my eyes.

Several of John Doe's victims suffer body horror during their torture/murder. One victim is force-fed to death. Another is tied to a bed so long he goes insane. He is described as having bitten off his own tongue. His body looks like a corpse and the police who find him think he is dead at first.

Depending on your take on the killer, and a subject which is argued throughout the film, you could argue he is mentally ill, and is also definitely violent and gruesome.

The killer often threatens his victims with a gun. The killer and the detectives have a shootout mid-film, and a character later dies by being shot.
