Some of the victims are stalked before their kidnapping, though it isn't a key part of the story. In many cases, their capture is spontaneous, as one of the main characters is suddenly hit with a "vision" that tells them when to do the deed.

No domestic violence occurs on screen but a man yells at his offscreen partner in a way that implies abusive behavior.

Fenton is manipulated by his father so that when he attempts to alert the authorities of the murders, he isn't taken seriously, for the Sheriff has already been told that Fenton is a liar.

not quite, but multiple people are buried after being murdered (there are multiple scenes where the burying is shown on screen) and a child is locked in an underground cellar while still alive, both of which could potentially be upsetting if being buried alive is a trigger for you

Not necessarily a possession; the father claims that an angel is speaking to him, telling him which "demons" to murder. When he touches one of the demons, he can see all of their sins, as if God is looking through him when he does this. However, it is never directly specified what is causing these visions.

A suicide is depicted in the beginning, though it is later revealed that this "flashback" was a lie told by one of the main characters, and the person who committed suicide was actually murdered.

Most murder shots are from the POV of the victim, so the viewer just sees a man swinging his axe and flinging it down, but other than that the camera does not show much gore except for the father's death.
