It happens just after the shot of the village’s religious leader preparing to make a human sacrifice (the woman is tied up and blindfolded behind her). The scene cuts to Fjolnir and Gudrún sitting by a fire; wolves around the village are howling and the dog is agitated and sits up. He attacks Fjolnir and Fjolnir kills him. It’s in the dark but you hear the dog yelp. The body is not shown. Just after this dog is killed there’s a shot of other dogs or wolves attacking villagers so there’s an implication these animals may have also been killed. It’s also later implied the first dog’s heart was cut out but it’s not shown. To the person asking what the characters say - I don’t remember the exact dialogue but when the scene cuts to Fjolnir and Gudrún sitting by a fire the camera pans in on the dog, who sits up and looks agitated. Fjolnir and Gudrún say ‘Rakki?’ (the dog’s name). I think the scene either briefly cuts away again before cutting back to the dog attacking Fjolnir, or he attacks and then it cuts to something else and then back again. Either way I would cover your ears/eyes right when the camera starts to zoom in on the dog and keep them covered/closed for a minute or two

Two different scenes have horses being sacrificed by decapitation. The action of the actual decapitation is off camera

To avoid, close your eyes for roughly a minute after you see the sword get forged.

Not in the more modern sense but a guy is “stalking” the man who killed his father.

Lots of instances of physical violence towards women, but not in a domestic partnership limitation

Children multiple are burned alive ( we don’t see them dying) but we hear them screaming and banging a door to get out. Child is injured during a rough sports game. Many men are bludgeoned, he also is killed later and see his body twice more with a decapitated horse.

Hallucinogenic mushrooms are slipped into a stew, also possible hallucinogenics for the purposes of prophecy

There are a couple times where characters quite literally eat others’ hearts out

No squashed heads but there are decapitations and someone is stabbed with a sword through their face. Another man is punched repeatedly in the face while he’s on the ground; there is a shot of his face halfway through the beating and it is bloody but not squashed. The beating continues and you can hear the bones breaking but there is no shot of his crushed face.

People in a village (including children) are locked in a building, which is set on fire; you don’t see the people on fire but you hear their screams

Nobody is possessed but there's a scene where people think others are possessed.

There's a scene about 15 minutes into the movie wherein a man burps directly into another's face, and a boy loudly farts, as part of a spiritual ceremony. I believe there are also some instances of people spitting out blood.

Two very quick scenes, both with visual but very faint (if any) sound. The first is about halfway through -- it's a wide shot of two drunk men coming out of a pub, so it's from far away and not too graphic. The next is not too long after that, when [SPOILERS] Amleth and Olga drug the viking village with mushrooms and the whole town trips out. Similarly to that first scene, it's a wide shot with very minimal sound, but this one is slightly more graphic as the man is sick twice (though it's in the background and not the main focus of the scene).

Someone stabs themselves in the neck. I presume he died as a consequence. Short scene, not planned suicide.

In the opening scene, and again at the end of the movie, a lightning storm is seen in the distance over an active volcano. The lightning doesn't flash across the whole screen, but there are still small flickers.

Olga is pregnant but it's only revealed in the last 20-25 minutes and is not featured heavily. She is shown holding the babies in the final scene.

No LGBTQ+ people die. There are two LGBTQ+ background characters in the movie, as there is a ~10 second shot of an erotic dance ceremony in which two women are partnered up and being, well, erotic with each other; both of these women survive.

The main character and love interest are 20 years apart.

Two characters are shown clearly having sex. Multiple instances of male nudity, and one of a girl lifting her dress to show her vagina.

It depends on your interpretation. What happens can be seen as good or bad, though some will wish it had gone differently.

We don’t see anyone in the process of drowning but we do see bodies of people who have probably drowned, floating in water
