A woman's bare butt is seen as she enters a shower


There are some strong scenes of bloody violence and gore in this film. We see zombies feasting on dead bodies; zombies biting bloody chunks of flesh from their victims; a woman's eye impaled in close, extended detail; numerous gunshot wounds; exploding zombie heads; zombies fried by Molotov cocktails; etc.

The violence in this film is less frequent and slightly less bloody than in its contemporaries such as Dawn of the Dead, but the lingering, intense style of shooting makes the gore scenes rather more shocking and frightening.


Occasional mild scatological terms (e.g. "crap", "horseshit") and very mild religious profanities ("damn", etc.). None of the stronger sexual terms are used.


Some characters are seen drinking spirits. Little to no smoking and no drug use.


Everything described in the violence/gore section could be considered frightening/disturbing to some viewers; only view this movie if you are prepared for gruesome blood and gore content.

The level of suspense and menace is also quite high in many scenes, and is likely to be too much for children or sensitive/nervous individuals.

If your son/daughter has seen horror films like "Dawn Of The Dead" or "Evil Dead" I think he/she can see this.

Overall score: 34/50.
