When the hitchhiker stops a man in a big rig, the driver has a dog. The hitchhiker brings the dog to eat a dead alien and soon the worm is in the dog. The dog lays next to the hitchhiker in the big rig (after the diver is killed) and the dog is wimpering as its stomach moves strangely. When they get to the Boston aqueduct, the hitchhiker brings the dog inside. The dog does die, but you don't SEE it die, you just see the body. The wimpering is yucky though. It starts maybe the last 30/45 minutes of the movie.

Not jokes, per se, but a minor character’s weight is prominently featured. His death is also shrugged off as it was due to his weight.

Yes, there is drinking, but I wouldn’t say abuse. One character is shown to be intoxicated after about 5 beers.

No, but one character does get burned post mortem. All you really see is a shoe, so it’s not graphic at all.

There is a scene where a character has a substantial injury to the fingers of one hand. This has a minimal impact on the scene and is not highlighted. If you’re not paying attention, you could miss it entirely.

Shower no, but bathroom yes. It has a lot of the same suspense as a typical shower scene. Instead is the suspense being about the shower curtain being pulled back, it’s the bathroom door being opened.

The first childhood flashback involves teens bullying a boy with Down syndrome by stripping him down and trying to force him to eat feces. The main characters fend off the teens and prevent anything from happening to the boy, but it still may be distressing to watch.

There are a couple of close call almost suicide scenes. One is fairly brutal regarding vehicles. If this is a sensitive subject, I would advise caution.
