This film is about a zombie apocalypse, with a focus on a group of survivors trapped in a house in a small countryside town in Butler County, PA.

The zombies eat body parts in one scene. This is quite graphic and may be very disturbing.

A young couple are seen burning to death in a car and may be disturbing.

A girl who has turned into a zombie is seen killing her mother. This may be upsetting.

The first girl who arrived in the house is seen being killed by her brother who is now a zombie.

The one survivor walks out of the basement. One of the Butler County zombie hunters shoots him in the head and burn his body.

Overall score: 21/50.
