There's no dog (in the remastered version at least). Only the sound of dogs barking at a couple points.

The Tall Man's finger is chopped off, however, since he is an inhuman entity, the blood that drains from his hand is yellow.

Technically, the kid comes back in the second movie, but this movie makes it look like he is taken by the monsters at the end and could be assumed dead.

There was one part after the 51-minute mark (when they're checking the car and look inside) where someone has yellow goop dripping out of their mouth, it's presumably blood but I found it a little triggering personally.

At some parts, the camera shakes to convey chaos and panic as the characters run for their lives. However, these moments are brief and likely not extreme enough to instill motion sickness in most viewers.

The r-slur is used once to refer to a (presumably) developmentally disabled kid.

The film opens with a sex scene, and there is another one later. The woman has her top off.

The ending appears sad, although it may now be seen as a cliffhanger, for there are sequels.
