While Renfield and Dracula are not in a traditional relationship, their relationship is modeled after the dynamic of a DV relationship, including lovebombing, gaslighting, threats, coercion, manipulation, and emotional and physical abuse. The film also involved scenes in a support group where abusive relationship dynamics are described.

This film is about taking power back from your abuser, not holding power over someone else.

Dracula gaslights Renfield throughout, particularly during the scene in Renfield's apartment. Near the start of the film Dracula manipulates Renfield into helping him escape from a protection circle by telling him that he's the only one who cares about him and can help him, and Renfield narrates "I really, really thought he meant it this time". Dracula also tells multiple other characters he wants to work with them, when he really just wants to use them. Teddy attempts to convince Rebecca that her father was a coward. Renfield attends a support group in which codependent people discuss their experiences with narcissists. So yeah, this film has a LOT of gaslighting, and even more general manipulation.

There is a very brief moment early on in the film in which Teddy appears to snort a line of cocaine off his hand, in the car just after Apache Joe's head comes off. Someone throws a brick of cocaine into a police officer's face, so he may have ended up involuntarily inhaling some.

there are a few split-second shots of small-ish cgi spiders when renfield takes them out of a little box to eat them (eating flies and spiders is this character's whole thing) but they're really not played for arachnophobia and didn't trigger me at all (ymmv obv)

I wouldn’t necessarily say anyone sacrificed their lives. They willingly go to fight evil, knowing their lives are at risk, but they don’t die.

Not necessarily possessed, just not fully in control of themselves. Renfield, for example, being the first servant of Dracula we see. Dracula is able to speak to him telepathically to a point it hurts.

Toward the end of the movie a character kicks another in the stomach, causing blood to shoot out of their mouth and butt. Technically could be classified as v* but as someone who’s sensitive to this it was fine, it was ~2 seconds and looked very fake.

Look away when Renfield kicks a guy and it zooms in with a Mortal Kombat-esque X-ray

Not on-screen but it's definitely a repeating motif.
Early on a character is threatened with it.
A couple characters throughout the movie are arrested but are released or escape. In the penultimate scene, a woman is arrested and heavily implied to be sent to prison .

As an epileptic myself, I’d suggest turning away when they wind-up downstairs of the Lobos’ mansion and the lights go out. It’s right near the end of the movie. It starts to flash a bit and I had to cover my eyes for a short bit.

Technically you could argue this, I guess. Renfield is over a hundred years old, and is interpreted by some as being romantically attracted to Rebecca. However they don't end up together within the film. Unless age gaps are extremely triggering to you, you should be fine.

I’d say the biggest theme was struggling with toxic relationships and clearly Renfield’s mental health is in a chronic state after serving Dracula for so long. But other than that, no.

LOTS AND LOTS. If this is a trigger, DO NOT go see the movie. They did go a bit over the top with the amount of blood for comedic purposes, blood is consumed, Dracula slits his wrist and blood is shown dripping from it, in some parts Dracula is missing most his skin, etc.
