Not a spectacle for the other characters, as no one else is around, but there is a woman murdered in an especially shocking way that is meant to be a "spectacle" for the audience.

The original Night of the Living Dead (1968) has no amputation scenes. The closest is a ghoul's hand thrust through a window and getting its fingers chopped away by one of the survivors using a knife to fend it off.

It's hard to say in 2022. There may not be a lot of it screentime-wise, but what is there can be considered excessive. It certainly was in 1968. I think even if it's brief, showing ghouls eating burnt body parts and fighting over stretched out organs could be called excessive. It shocked moviegoers then, maybe it's not seen that way now. But I'd err on the side of safety if that's a trigger for you (and if it is, why are you even considering this title anyway? ;) ).

The ending might seem at first like copaganda (to some people -- I can't go into details without spoiling it) but I think the filmmakers were very frank in their feelings about police/authority/posse justice, no matter how you view the ending. There's a lot going on there. Still very relevant in 2022, if not even more so than in 1968. It's one of the reasons this film is continuing to grow in stature as a true classic.

One could say that every character in the film is suffering some amount of PTSD -- they've each just gone through unspeakably horrifying events to get where they are in the film. Barbara especially shows symptoms of it but they all exhibit fear, paranoia, irritation, anger, grief, etc.. There is no overt reference to PTSD or anything like that but still... these people are all very stressed out by some pretty horrendous trauma, individually and collectively.

Barbara spends most of the movie having a mental breakdown, unable to function normally due to the stress of the situation. She's either nonverbal or screaming most of the time.

The female characters are spoken over and commanded by the men, but this is both a product of its time and perhaps due to the fact that all of them are wet wipes and particularly useless. (Female written.)

Barbara experiences some kind of mental break due to the stress of the early events of the movie, and spends most of the rest of it either nonverbal or screaming. The other characters are sometimes callous or disparaging about this.

There is a lot of it. Ghouls are killed by a shot to the head, and there are a number of those shots graphically shown, as well as body shots, and a lead character is shot in a fight between survivors.
