The woman who owns the hotel where the main character stays references her husband. There are many sequences of her abusing him, including one scene where she kicks something off-screen and we later pan down to see that his hand is cuffed to her ankle. In a later sequence the woman (at this point mutated with large tentacles) attacks her husband--still cuffed to her--with an axe while he screams.

Most of the characters are gaslighting the main character, and the movie as a whole is also gaslighting the viewer.

There is a dog with a bloody wound where its leg used to be. It is implied that this was done by the possessed children that were earlier shown chasing the dog.

A man is attacked by several people with weapons like axes. There is a shot of the man's hand reaching up to the wall, and we can see that half of one of his fingers has been chopped off.

It is left purposely ambiguous whether the character is mentally ill or the (very surreal and supernatural) situation they say is happening is real.
