Not exactly stalking per se, but people find out where Marcel lives they come to the house and take pictures, break in, etc.

It’s not outright domestic violence but there are multiple flashbacks of the couple that lived in the house loudly arguing and things in the house being broken in moments of physical aggression. It’s never deeply explored or clear what is happening or why beyond a couple fighting, but it can be a tense moment at least for dv survivors

No, but a squirrel gets stuck in someone’s house and is chased out. Does not seem to be in distress.

There are but they are cutesy with googly eyes and they're way too small to be tarantulas. Also they don't move a lot. My partner is unbelievably arachnophobic and wasn't scared at all.

In addition to the previous comment about the grandma, there is a scene where a bee has “drank a little too much nectar” according to the grandma and makes some respiratory/gurgling sounds that sound a bit like they’re struggling to breathe

It's mentioned a character off screen got washed in the washing machine and "wasn't the same anymore" and would stare out the window for hours/days. It's implied that it's PTSD

About as much as you would expect from a mockumentary if not less. I think the most egregious is when marcel calls the videographer into the room while he’s looking for his family and the person with the camera runs down the hall

Barely and depending on where. In the first few minutes, there is a lightning storm during the flashback to the couple's first argument, but the flashes weren't rapid enough to be uncomfortable (I recall three in as many seconds, and two later also sparsed out). If watching at Angelika cinemas, their logo before the film has alternating flashing panels of bright colored lines against a black background that I had to shield my eyes from.
