In a sense. Victims of the blob are shown mid-digestion, still alive as their bodies dissolve. It's not a pretty sight. A woman's face deflates as it absorbs her from the inside-out, though she's implied to already have been dead for several minutes.

There's a scene where the Sheriff's face appears dissolving inside the Blob, and the teeth and jaw are separating and coming apart.

There's a bit where the characters are forced to get into a van by some government workers. It's framed as more of a "forced quarantine" than a kidnapping, but there is a mention of suspicious "unmarked vans"

The cops are portrayed, by and large, as incompetent and ineffectual, and the one sympathetic officer is portrayed as such due to his *lack* of brutality.
