Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this zombie movie is relentlessly, though resourcefully, bloody, and not for children. Parents should be aware that it follows in a tradition largely established by director George Romero, aiming for innovative uses of grisly special effects makeup with a focus on loose body parts, vicious dismemberments, and exposed viscera. (Aficionados of the genre will appreciate the outrageousness.) When they aren't killing or eating each other, characters smoke, drink, dress scantily, do drugs, prostitute and pimp, and use foul language.
References to prostitution, night club sexuality, lesbian kissing.
Zombies eat people; people shoot and chop up zombies; burning, exploding, and torn-in-half bodies.
Harsh language to indicate fear, aggression,and macho posturing.
Human villains dedicated to cruel class system, with zombies exploited as entertainment.
