Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Life After Beth is a zombie comedy with some romance thrown in (aka a "romzomcom"). Zombie killings mostly take place off screen, but there's lots of blood, as well as shooting, shouting, and arguing. Language is strong, with several uses of "f--k" as well as words like "c--k" and "a--hole." Characters kiss and fondle each other, with sex definitely on their minds. They do have sex in one scene, but no nudity is shown. A zombie girl is shown naked in one scene (breasts and butt). The main character smokes pot in one scene and a cigarette in another. Zombie fans will likely want to see this, as well as any big fans of stars Aubrey Plaza or Dane DeHaan.
When Beth comes back to life, she and Zach kiss and fondle each other (clothed) a lot. They're definitely thinking about sex and planning ways to get away so they can go at it.

The main character starts to rub a scarf that belonged to his dead girlfriend over his crotch area (clothed), but he's caught.
Though the violence starts slowly, and most of the killings take place off screen, there's quite a bit of splattered blood on furniture, walls, and on characters' faces and clothes. Some charred bodies are found. A character cuts off her fingers to feed to a zombie, and spurting blood is shown. A man shoots an old lady in the head. Zombies are shot in the head.
