While the blood and gore is not as bloody and gory as later sequels or movies and TV shows also centered on zombies, there are still violent moments. The ghouls can only be stopped, infamously, by being shot in the brain or beaten severely around the head. Others are set on fire. There is biting, dismemberment, and cannibalism. A little girl among the living in the farmhouse who has been ill dies and becomes a zombie and then kills her mother with a trowel, stabbing her repeatedly in the chest. Fistfights among the living, including one of the living killing another with a rifle.
