The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity


A zombie is seen running wearing only pasties over her nipples. Her breasts can be seen bouncing up and down in slow motion. The only real explicit part in the entire movie.

A man looks at a woman's clothed buttocks while she crawls on the ground looking for something.

Two men are in a vehicle having a conversation when they begin a conversation about sex and when was the last time each of them had sex. The word, "pu**y", is used in this conversation.

A man teases another man about wanting to have sex with a woman.

Violence & Gore


During the opening credits, a zombie is seen in slow-motion spitting a large amount of chunky goo out of it's mouth.

Many people are chased and killed by zombies throughout the movie.

An obese man runs from a zombie, falls and is attacked (we see blood, organs and the skin stretching then breaking apart).

A zombie with a very bloody mouth crawls under a bathroom stall door while a man is seated on the toilet; we hear a scream and something splatter, presumably blood and intestines, on the bathroom floor. This is done off-screen, behind the toilet cubicle's door.

A zombie clown drools goo and blood and it snarls and growls; a man with a large mallet strikes it in the stomach, it falls to the ground and he smashes its head (we see blood splatter on the ground).

A huge number of zombies enter an amusement park, they chase a woman and a young girl, and they both shoot at the zombies as they run away.

A man with a shotgun is chased by a zombie, he shoots it, two other zombies approach and chase him, and he shoots them both while running (we see them with bloody faces, mouths and gunshot wounds).



About 25 uses of the f-word, some uses of the s-word, and some other mild profanities as well.


A man drinks a shot of alcohol.

A man offers a shot of alcohol to another man who pours it out the car window whilst the other man isn't looking.


While this is a comedy, and there is a generally comedic feel there is also a few moderately scary scenes.

The zombies themselves will appear disturbing to some viewers.

There aren't very many intense scenes, but there are a lot of 'jump' scenes where things appear unexpectedly.

Total: 31/50

If you've seen Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, you'll be okay with this.
