    I read the novel, and a lot of characters don't exist. However they still never reveal the monster. Both the book and the movie are exellent on their own though.

    So these entities in bird box are based on lovecraft. Well besides cuthulu I also see in the sketches yog sothoth, Nyarlathotep, yig, azathoth, to name a few. Plus the author and producers of the movie put a dark twist to the beliefs held in Christianity. They are not the first to borrow ideas from the works of hp lovecraft. There were a few such as the Evil Dead franchise, the re-animator franchise, the Triangle which was recent. It's a good plot based on the works of a writer who lived a hundred years ago. Iam certain he would be flattered that movie makers are keeping his monster gods alive.

    If you can't control yourself and you commit suicide, then it is probably different and not fully bad, but if you can control it and stop yourself from suicide and you do it anyways, then that would be a full sin.
