The dog's body is implied to be stored inside the smaller cotton candy cocoon found hanging next to its owner's cocoon. (The filmmakers have confirmed that the mini-cocoon is the dog.)

Characters are told they just imagined things when they see weird and scary stuff happening. I would say it’s unintentional gaslighting because the stuff they’re saying is pretty hard to believe.

** SPOILER **

We see a killer clown attempt to lure a child out of a fast food restaurant while holding a large mallet behind its back. The child is called back inside by a close adult before anything happens.

Not a death, but this scene alludes to the possibility of one.
