Hah.. I mean to demonstrate that I'm the king of typos, which is why I have 4 editors. "LIKE the cover".
As for gore vs deathcount.. a death can be merely a statistic. (Kill a million people in a book, and you'd be hard pressed to detail each)
But gore? Is messy, up close, and descriptive. Bit o' viscera, blood splatters, gurgling, coughing screams, etc. I find I need a lot less of that than some people like. When I want to draw attention to some specific death(s) I might take that route, but I don't consider it mandatory to get the story told. It all depends on the situation.
