You'll want to skip from 36:40 to 38:13.

During this time, it's night, and M3GAN uses a voice recording of the dog's owner to lure it to the hole in the wooden fence. Once the dog gets closer to the fence, you see M3GAN's face appear at the hole (from the dog's POV) before the scene switches to show the dog, from the side, being pulled through the hole (by its collar, I assume) while it tries to resist and yelps in fright. Then, the scene changes to the next morning where you first hear and then see the dog's owner calling out it's name while walking down the street looking for him.

Honestly, I don't understand why movie directors feel the need to show pets being in any sort of danger like this. You can make a horror movie's antagonist creepy, scary, or unsettling via other ways.

People really need better reading comprehension skills. This category clearly requests for information about animal deaths other than a dog, cat, or horse, which have their own categories. Therefore, there should be nothing but NO’s in this section, because no other animals die in this movie. The dog info already exists elsewhere.

Original comment got deleted - there are dog attacks in this movie! There's no separate category for it, and it isn't listed under the dog death tag. Dogs attack people in this movie, or at least it's heavily heavily implied.

Since we are not shown or confirmed that he was killed before being buried, we do not know for sure whether or not the neighbor’s dog that M3GAN killed was dead before buried, it is only implied that he was killed before then, but M3GAN does confirm that she buried him somewhere.

Yes, while the other comments do say that the person who was hanged survives, I do think some will find it triggering or graphic, as he is shown to be hanging for a good minute or so before he is finally released from it. His face is shown to be all red and everything, and later he is even shown requiring a breathing mask at the end.

Sort of. A child is in a major car wreck and her parents are both killed in the accident. She obviously has PTSD and depression related to that and has to see a therapist, so that might be an issue for folks trauma around mental illness and related treatment.

The only sexual content I can remember in this movie is a character asking another character if they’re “porn-hubing” at work again. This is because the character they asked shut their laptop quickly. Nothing is seen and no worries they weren’t on any p*rn site.

All are very brief except the first one.
1. Ear gets pulled off (slowly and we see it)
2. Boy trips while running and falls down a hill into a street. We see him get hit, then a long blood smear on the road with his shoe left over.
3. Woman gets sprayed to death with a power washer. Very bloody. (Cant tell much, i did not watch)
4. Man is stabbed with a blade in elevator. Other mans throat is slit in elevator. Elevator doors open and blood is splattered all over.
5. Bloody nose and maybe some minor cuts in last fight scene.

A person is sprayed with a pressure washer, including in the face, though drowning was not the cause of their death.

If a nail gun counts then yes, someone gets shot in both hands with a nail gun
