No. However there is tension between a couple with a failed marriage.
Depending on the player's choices, there's a flashback scene where the couple is arguing over the phone but there's no domestic violence present.

Arguably. Characters who have seen the creatures have their fears rejected by other characters even if the other characters have found evidence of them. The love triangle subplot involves characters misleading or lying to others.

there's brief cigarettes, and a character calls another character a stoner, there's packs of heroin being smuggled that we see briefly, and another character mentioned being stoned years prior.

Nick is a smoker, but the habit is not featured prominently. Blocks of heroin are found, but it is unclear if the owners are using them or just smuggling them.

It's possible for one of the main characters to have his hands tied behind his back for a small portion of the game, though the restraint isn't focused on. A character may also be handcuffed to a table briefly.

Some characters have the ability to use a UV wand on the enemy, causing the enemies to burst into flames or stagger away.
It's possible for characters to die in an explosion.
It's possible for some characters to catch fire, their burnt corpse explicitly shown.

The vampire creatures can kill multiple characters by smashing their heads/pressing their claws into their faces. Mainly the front of the head gets visibly, graphically damaged and the result is shown right after the assault and at the very end of the game.

Multiple characters can fall to their death if the player fails the QTEs.
Some characters can be taken by the vampire creatures who fly into the sky and drop them down from a high distance.
One character can fall down a hole and break his neck.
One character can fall into the abyss and get impaled by a stalacmite.

No, but one character (Nick) sometimes seems to zone out when experiencing traumatic memories from an incident in the past. This is a recurring thing in his story arc. No flashbacks or physical discomfort is shown, outside of Nick sometimes looking absent or distracted.
