Sex & Nudity

  • Despite sexual intercourse happening offscreen, no sexual activity is shown on screen.
  • There are no notable dialog references to sex.
  • In one brief shot a woman's breast is visible, partially obscured in shadow.
  • A couple kiss and flirt, but nothing explicit.

Violence & Gore

  • The film features gory carnage throughout. The camera does not linger on gore and suffering as much as some modern films but the film's short, sharp shots of violence are brutal and could be considered shocking.
  • Zombies are shown attacking victims, biting (in close-up), tearing flesh and disemboweling their live prey. The creatures can only be killed by decapitation or destruction of the brain, so the characters are forced to defend themselves with firearms and bladed weapons, inflicting bloody bullet wounds, decapitations, dismemberment, gruesome blunt-force trauma and vehicular homicide on their undead attackers. Most of the killings are gory and detailed, but shown only briefly. There are many, many, many zombie killings. It should also be noted that the human-on-zombie violence is largely "kill or be killed".
  • Blood splatters in tremendous amounts for both humans and zombies.

Profanity

  • 2 uses of f**k, 1 use of What the H**l, 3 uses of son of a b***h, and 4 uses of s**t.
  • Some strong language is used, albeit fairly infrequently. There are 4 uses of the word 'fuck' and its derivatives, as well as some of the common scatological and anatomical swear-words. One racial slur ('chocolate man') is directed at a main character.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters are seen smoking and drinking throughout. A minor character is shown desperately looking for a cigarette. A man drinks alcohol to numb the pain of an injury, and is later given morphine to cope with the agony. No drug abuse. A character drinks to a dead friend.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Scenes of 'cannibalism', the constant threat of the hungry zombies clawing and struggling to reach the characters, and the transformation of sympathetic characters into bloodthirsty ghouls will all likely be disturbing to children and those of a sensitive disposition. Many adult viewers, even those with strong stomachs, will likely be shocked by the visual images of extremely gruesome horror present in the film.
  • The film's handling of the concept of "zombies" is also frightening in itself; they are "us" technically, except they also like to eat us.
  • Some upsetting deaths.

Violence & Gore

  • There is also some considerable human-on-human violence: Several gang members are gunned down by police. An innocent man is decapitated by a shotgun blast. A character is shot in the arm in close-up bloody detail. Characters are picked off with a sniper rifle.
