*spoilers*** The scenes with the dogs look real fake. I hate animal death scenes especially the yelping. But this is one of my favorite movies. Yes theres a part where they show a dead dog and it looks really fake. There is one part where Ginger kicks the rottwelier but its very quick and its because he was barking at her because he knew she wasn't herself. Its not graphic and it's a very very quick Yelp I barely heard it. There is a part where the sisters find a dead dog and try moving it and one of its legs comes off.. again looks really fake. If you're extremely sensitive to even the slightest amount of gore with a dog.. then yes.. stay away but its not that bad. Ginger does eat the neighbors dog but it does not show in scene only the aftermath where she's throwing up the blood.

there is no direct child instance of child abandonment, but there are themes of children not being given enough attention. however, there is a scene where a mother says she will stay to help her daughter, then goes out looking for her, and she is never seen again in the movie.

Not really but Ginger pushes Brigette around a lot physically and verbally which could be triggering for those who have had siblings like that.

Marijuana is smoked, there are several scenes where characters smoke cigarettes, and the "cure" for lycanthropy is made and administered very similarly to heroine (herbs boiled in alcohol over an open flame, before being intravenously injected via hypodermic needle).

While there is no drug or alcohol addiction, the way Ginger begins to have cravings for violence that escalate throughout the film does seem analogous to addiction.

Although Jason initially pursued Ginger and clearly wanted to have sex with her, during their actual encounter he is clearly hesitant about Gingers aggression. He asks about a condom but she continues to be violent, and he is heard asking her to wait in a panicked voice, which she ignores. Later he appears with cuts on his face and although he describes the encounter in a positive way, it's likely he's posturing in front of his friends.

Ginger attempts to shave her legs, which is becoming difficult as her transformation progresses. Blood is shown on her legs as she struggles and grows frusterated with shaving.

There are several references to self harm, such as Gingers line "wrists are for girls, I'm slitting my throat."

Both Bridgette and Ginger have scars on the palms of their hands in the same spot, (revealed in a deleted scene to be done by Ginger to tie Bridgette to her).

Ginger is shown using a knife to try and remove the tail she is growing. It's quite bloody, though she is unsuccessful and Bridgette stops her.

Bridgette cuts open her hand, and Gingers, and presses their hands together to prove her loyalty to Ginger. The cut is later shown as almost healed almost immediately, though still split and covered in dried blood.

The cure for lycanthropy needs to be injected to be most effective. Close up on the syringe being filled with the liquid, and many shots of the syringe and needle itself. A character gets stabbed in the neck with the needle and the liquid is injected. The needle is seen still sticking out of their neck as they walk away.

A high schooler is flirting with a drug dealer but we never find out how much older he is. It sounds like they used to date He does not reciprocate in the movie and does not flirt with anyone underage on screen though a character implies he is a pervert. The same character who is underage tries to seduce him but he pushes her off.
