A zombie exotic dancer (wearing a bra and underwear) chases a man through a parking lot. This scene is shot in slow motion and only lasts for a few seconds.

A few sexual conversations and jokes but they are very mild


Early on, we see a zombie bite some matter off of a man's waist, a zombie tear some bloody flesh from another man's neck, a zombie tear some bloody flesh from a woman's ankle, a zombie killing a man offscreen with some blood splattering on the floor, and a woman flying out of a car window in a car crash, leaving a bloody smear on the ground (she lies dead with part of her bloodied face seen for a second).

A man is accidentally shot in the chest, we see a bloody wound for a bit.

We see (from some distance) a zombie feeding on a dead man. Some guts can be seen shortly.

A man discovers bloodless forearms still gripping a steering wheel by the hands.

Multiple zombies are shot with bloody results, and 4 or 5 more are bloodily taken out with blunt force.

7/10 Roughly 21 uses of 'fuck', 9 of 'shit', 2 of 'bitch(es)' and the middle finger, and 1 of 'goddamn', 'jesus christ', 'fat bastard', and 1 "P.Oed"

5/10 A man lights marijuana in a multi-tubed device, with a man and girl putting a tube to their mouths. They seem to be high momentarily in the next scene.

A guy and a girl each drink from a bottle of wine twice during one scene.

A man drinks a shot of liquor and offers one to another guy who pours it out the car window while he's not looking.

8/10 A fairly violent sequence early on. There are two or three jump scenes involving zombies that suddenly appear (just momentarily scary).

The zombies can be quite bloody at times, and their appearances may be scary to some.

Overall: 30/50 Suitable for 14+
