[SPOILERS AHEAD] I wouldn't say it's for spectacle, but Meg goes through some pretty traumatizing stuff in the movie, including being restrained and nearly sexually assaulted and then being choked to death.

You see the body of a dead cat several times and then it's 'reanimated' and killed again. There are graphic shots of the fight with the cat and the aftermath.

The main characters inject the drug into the dead subjects (without their consent obviously, they’re dead) so I would say they’re being drugged.

There is a rape scene
[SPOILERS]
A woman wakes up naked and strapped to a table. She screams as her breasts are fondled and licked. The attacker is about to go further, but is interupted.

Meg's mouth is covered so she can't scream when she's kidnapped by her reanimated father. At the end of the movie a large intestine-like appendage restrains Herbert and covers his mouth. In both cases, muffled screaming and cries for help can be heard for several seconds.

A re-animated corpse takes down a morgue's steel door which lands over a man, the re-animated jumps over it, crushing the man, and then throws him arround the room to death. Pretty difficult to not break a bone during that.
