A mother is described as hating her child because the child’s birth was difficult. The plot also revolves around fathers killing their children but it is not implied that the fathers are abusive beforehand.

Spoiler: many of the deaths involve the murder-suicide of many families and some of the deaths are seen on screen or heard off screen. The very last scene at the end of the movie has verbal abuse from a husband towards a wife.

Can anyone help with a time estimate for this, or anything notable that happens ahead of it? I want to see this movie but desperately don’t want to see this poor cow!

roughly 50 minutes in, during an 'autopsy' there is a flash to a red filtered sequence of snakes moving around. very quick. Happens again roughly 17 minutes later right after you see a spider crawl under a door and finally towards the end after someone says "there once was a little girl..."

Not explicitly.

SPOILER:

A person undresses and provocatively draws a knife against their stomach in front of a doll that contains the consciousness of a child (think locked-in syndrome). Also aspects of the story and imagery could be triggering to survivors.

No humans are buried alive but there is a scene where a doll made to look like a human child is discovered in a box buried under a barn floor. It’s tucked up in the box in a foetal position and for a very brief second, when the FBI agents remove the lid, it does almost look like a real person

In the very first scene of the movie, when the child is looking around in the snow, Longlegs suddenly appears. Later when Lee is looking at photos in her mom’s house there’s another jumpscare with Longlegs. These were the only jumpscares that stood out to me but other scenes may also qualify.

The villian is not explicitly queer but definitely takes cues from Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. Feels very “man is scary because of man’s proximity to femininity”. Longlegs is a cis man, but the imagery could be read this way for sure.

In the press junket for this movie, the director has described the actress who plays Lee Harker as playing her with autistic mannerisms without his prompting. I don’t believe she’s confirmed that and no character is expressly said to be autistic

It isn't cross-dressing. He's a dollmaker and there's a scene that overlays his face with a shot of a porcelain doll, hinting that it's what the intent was with his appearance.

Nicolas Cage wears facial prosthetics to make his face look fatter/puffy. He wears no other prosthetics to my knowledge.

Bursts of brutal bloody horror violence throughout, including shootings, cutting, ax killings, and face smashing, shown in graphic bloody detail; blood splatters; decaying corpses shown in graphic gory detail; flashes of murder scenes with blood-splattered walls and floors; blood-stained clothing.
