Dead frogs about to be dissected- you do not see them die nor do you see anyone start to dissect them.

Kind of. A parent insists one of the child characters is mentally ill rather than psychic and berates her that they're just dreams and nothing else

not sure what the other comment is talking about, as it is most definitely implied, and quite heavily so; the kidnapper plays a game with his victims called “naughty boy,” of which his “favorite part” is briefly discussed (though never explicitly clarified or shown). when playing the “naughty boy” game, he’s also half naked, for some reason. he also watches the main character as he sleeps, says he “won’t do anything [the main character] won’t like” in a suggestive tone, and the sexual component is both confirmed and intended by the director and writers. as a csa victim myself, it’s extremely difficult to miss.

Not on screen, but it's verbally described. The main character is also borderline starved

no excessiveness, but a man gets axe to head and you see it. probably the most gory in movie

not super scary but a little startling. two of the victims appear very suddenly, one appears behind mc bloodied and one floating from the floor dripping with blood.

Absolutely yes! The cops take credit for solving the crime despite them not doing a dang thing, lol, and the film never interrogates/questions that.

The killer/kidnapper is clearly "unhinged," but no diagnoses are referenced and none really even come to mind. It's just standard horror movie villainy.

Not during the movie or on screen, but it is mentioned that the mother of the main characters unalived herself.
