Kind of. The monster gives people hallucinations, and we see people thinking they're crazy or lying when they tell people what's going on.

In the Larry Redmon flashback, he tries to shoot himself in the mouth with a shotgun but it jams, so he drinks drain cleaner and is shown falling to the ground with blood coming out of his mouth. Towards the end of the movie, the main character shoots himself in the head with a handgun.

Adding to the previous comment, they're both cis men and it's used as more of a "chicken/pussy" analogy.

Id say yes just b/c the black people in the movie aren’t treated very nicely in their characters (black friend is accused of stealing the white character’s girlfriend multiple times, black librarian only exists for expositional perposes) but it depends on your standards
