Could be interpreted that way. But it’s just a lot of “there’s no such thing as monsters”

Pretty disturbing. Opening scene a baby/young toddler is crying in its room and the monster mimics shushing it and then kills it (off screen). Also discussed that the siblings of the same baby also died (also offscreen)

When sadie smokes with the girls, she coughs a whole lot. She keeps coughing and runs to the bathroom. Theres a pretty graphic scene after she runs to the bathroom. I would suggest turning off the audio and not looking for about 30 seconds, once shes with the girls again, You can turn it back on. All she does it pull the tooth that sawyer lost out of her mouth. 👍🏾

It's left somewhat unclear whether it's suicidal or if the boogeyman is causing these things, but a hanging does occur and it's treated as a suicide

A main character is called psychotic, crazy, and schizophrenic as insults by a group of teenage girls, who also say they don’t like her in the same conversation. Another minor character is reduced to “that crazy guy” by the same teenagers due to his assumed psychotic mental illness.

No. The ending implies that The Boogeyman is still alive or that there are more than one. The ending is hopeful for the family and the implied survival of The Boogeyman doesn't make the ending "sad" just eerie or ambiguous.
