Multiple real animals are killed onscreen. If you are watching on some dvd releases, they may include an edit that removes those scenes.

The following animals are killed on-screen: a coati (mistaken for a muskrat), a large turtle, a tarantula, a boa constrictor, a squirrel monkey, and a pig. The BBFC called these kills "quick," but the turtle's death is fairly slow.

People smack themselves, implying bug bites. Bugs are shown crawling on skulls/skeletons. Leeches are also shown on a character wading through water (though not technically bugs).

A large tarantula is shown on a character's arm. It is knocked off of her and then cut in half.

Early on, the guide gives what is implied to be cocaine to a Yocomo boy before taking some himself

There are multiple scenes of both the indigenous characters and the filmmakers torturing others or being tortured through the entire film.

YES. Not sure why people are stating otherwise. A pregnant woman is forced to give birth. The fetus is killed in front of her, and then the mother is stoned to death.

But a woman is tortured, and there is a reference to it being punishment for adultery.

After one character falls onto a skeleton and its face is shown close up, another character vomits profusely (audio and visual). Right after the turtle's head gets cut off, a character vomits onto a log. There is some buildup so it should be easy to avoid.

No strobes, but the screen flickers rapidly to show the end of the first reel of found footage.

There is a very disturbing scene where the tribal members pull the baby out of the mother then bury the baby

The indigenous people are referred to as “savages” and such.

No, but children absolutely should not be watching this movie in the first place.

Both groups shoot indigenous people and fire their guns into the air on several occasions.

This is not a snuff film, as all the violent scenes with humans created for the movie are staged special effects. During the couple decades before this movie was made, graphic Vietnam War footage was commonly aired on television, so documentary-style footage of war atrocities would actually have been less shocking than the special effects. Vietnam footage was so ubiquitous by the late 60's that the 1968 children's movie Head (a movie about that era's equivalent of Justin Bieber) shows real war footage of a man being executed, and yet has a G rating.

A fetus is pulled out of a woman and buried, though it's unclear if it's still alive
