not directly, but i would argue yes. as the ‘final girl’ escapes the underground house of horrors, a main antagonist pops up in the back of the car, having presumably been stalking her to there.

While both men and women are tortured and killed, women are particularly sexualized in their torture (i.e. most of it is done while they're nude, women are raped during and after death by Otis, etc.)

Otis Driftwood does forcibly kiss one of the main girls.
Mama Firefly kisses one of the main boys towards the end.
There is also a scene when a cheerleader from a high school is tied to a bed, and Otis is behind her laughing as she screams. I myself am unsure if he is assaulting her sexually, but it still could be triggering to some. It is however very quick and brief, and it happens when they arrive at the house and Baby says “No there’s a bunch of us around here.” Just so you can skip it really quick if you would like to.
Also, it is canon that Otis does SA the victims and their bodies, in case people want to know before watching this or the other two movies.

Falls on the typical horror movie trope of calling the characters teenagers without ever saying how old they actually are. None of the characters are ever stated to be minors but it's worth keeping in mind.

Captain Spaulding and another character do in fact say the word, specifically these sentences.
“That (blank) that hangs out at Molly’s food stamps?”
“He’s one horny (blank).”
It is within the first few minutes after the intro of Captain Spaulding’s gas station and murder ride. Other than those 2 times, it is not said again.

The original concept and design for Otis was that he was albino. You can see this by his hair and eye color. Bill Moseley is not albino. However, his albinism is retconned in the rest of the series, so you may be able to just pretend he looks like that for unrelated reasons.

There is no v* in this movie, I just watched it. However, at 1:20:05 in, (According to Tubi) there is a scene with a red guy wearing goggles who takes off this gas mask thing off his mouth - then proceeds to spit mucus out of his mouth. Lasts until 1:20:10. It looks kinda like he spat up a raw egg in a way. Diddn't effect me but probably could to others.
