then later, during the climax of the movie, one of the main characters' head is held under water in a lobster tank until they drown.

(SPOILER) The killer pushes Kate down and slides her headfirst through some sort of large meat grinder/bread slicer. It’s extremely graphic, so if this triggers you, look away when Kate is pushed onto the table by the killer. Moments later, Simon is killed with an axe through his head, which is also fairly graphic.

Too many differing answers here and it’s confusing.
First one: 26:30 Sam v-s blood after the witch mascot says “I got this”.
Second one: 49:50 Sam v-s into a sink after “murdered kids and cut out their eyes” it’s very obvious that it’s going to happen.
Third time: 1:22 Sam v-s goo after Deena checks her watch.
Fourth time: 1:28 Sam chokes up foam/water, it’s pretty visceral.

One of the main characters commits suicide (first via an overdose, then by having a friend drown her) as part of a plan to stop the witch. She is then resuscitated. One of the villains committed suicide in the past, but is now an undead creature.

All the possessed killers are brushed off by non-supernatural-believing characters to have “simply gone crazy”. This can be frustrating to audience members because of our knowledge of the characters and their true intentions.
Also the use of “crazy” can potentially be interpreted as ableist.

MAJOR SPOILERS!
there's a really gorey scene towards the end in the grocery store that was really triggering for me. one of the characters basically gets shredded to pieces by some grocery equipment and it's extremely graphic bloody and disgusting. if this type of thing triggers you, look away when you see the girl being put on the conveyor belt, you'll be able to tell when the scene is over just by audio.

in the very beginning sequence, police shoot a murderer in the forehead, instantly killing him. in other scenes the main characters use a gun for defense purposes, but it is not used in excess
