To clarify, a reanimated half dog is beaten with a crutch, but not to death. They DO burn it all up later though.

Ernie breaks his foot when something gets dropped on it. You can also hear cracking when two characters start getting rigor mortis and they try to move their limbs.

Define "excessive." I say no. LOTS of gore, heavens yes... but is any of it excessive for a zombie movie from the '80s? Any of it go too far for a film called Return of the Living Dead? No sir.

He's ill from 16:24-16:35, but you only see his back. The noises are pretty gross though. Again at 41:24-41:40, gross noises but no throw up is shown.
