Shut-Up Is Said Once

Oh My God Is Used Once Or Twice

Mr. Cooper smokes throughout the movie. Mrs. Cooper is seen smoking once. Only Mr. And Mrs. Cooper smoke in this film. Other than that, no smoking is in the film.


This film is about a zombie apocalypse invading and eating human flesh in a house in a small countryside town in Butler County, PA.

The zombies eat body parts in one scene and may be very disturbing to anyone who doesn't like cannibalism movies.

A girl is seen sick suffering (although treated with care in film) and turns into a zombie and may be disturbing to people who love kids.

A 2 loved couple are seen dying in a car and may be disturbing and sad to people.

The girl downstairs (turned into a zombie) is seen killing her mother when she turned into a zombie so she can eat human flesh.

The first girl who arrived in the house (Although there were 5 people hiding, including the Cooper's daughter) is seen being killed by her brother who is now a zombie and may be disturbing to people who have siblings.

The one survivor walks out of the basement and feels weak and one of the Butler County zombie bounty hunters thinks that he is a zombie and he gets shot in the head, they beat him up, and put him in the fire.

Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for horror violence, bloody images, brief partial nudity, and some language.
