Plenty of funny moments, but not for the faint of heart.

SCARY BUT THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING FUNNY WITH IT XD!!!

THIS IS A GREAT FILM! Just ignore the zombies the violence isn't that scary, it's just the zombies are a bit creepy and might freak some kids into going to bed at night so you need to know your child and talk them first! Most children under 13 will find this very scary! Unless your a badman lol. The only scenes which are a bit freaky are when Shaun Riley (Simon Pegg) goes to the toilet and a zombie's shadow is in the shower when Shaun looks in the mirror, the zombie is really creepy! Another one is when Shauns (step)father is bitten by a zombie (there is a bloody mess) And there is a sudden change when Shaun says to his mum that he's dead and then he looks back and his (step)father is a zombie too. But when there are scary scenes in this movie there is always something said afterwards that makes the scariness go away! THIS MOVIE SAYS LOL ALL OVER IT!

good old british humor lol

hysterical horror comedy thriller, simon pegg and nick frost are hilarious lol, the first half of shaun of the dead is comedy but when it gets to the middle and they find the first zombie, that's when the movie kicks off into overdrive and that's when people get bitten, eaten, and have their guts torn out, and all the zombies get impaled, have records thrown at them, have the crap beaten out of them, and get shot and run over by cars, and there's also much more humor as well when it hits overdrive

I love this movie alot. Simon Pegg does the best when hes working with Nick Frost. This will make you laugh I promise you that. That being said there is violence in it and strong language. This is a good movie worth watching.

AWESOME!!!

Loved this movie from beginning to end. One time I was watching this at my cousin's house and after we finished the movie, my uncle told us to be careful if we went outside because there was a drunk dude outside(considering there is a zombie in Shaun of the Dead that is accused of being a drunken guy). Anyways SEE THIS MOVIE!

Very good horror-comedy film related to the 2004 movie "Dawn of the Dead".

Shaun of the Dead resembles a comic feel of the 2004 horror flick Dawn of the Dead; about your average 29 year old guy who hates his job and has a girlfriend who tries to encourage him to make something better of himself, but has a bad habit of slacking off and hanging out with his average friends. The next morning, a zombie invasion occurs and he begins to gather his friends and family (even his mother and father) and attempts to escape and live for their sake of survival. Despite the comedy tone of this film, there are graphic scenes of zombies attacking, eating, dismembering, disemboweling, and tearing apart human victims in bloody and gory ways. One upsetting scene shows Shawn the agonizing decision to kill his own infected mother by shooting her in the head, and another scene shows of his friend getting attacked from a horde of zombies and is graphically ripped apart and you see his organs, bones and innards splatter everywhere in explicit detail. Language is constant and strong, sometimes combined with very crude and sexual dialogue. Uses of f**k, motherf**ker, sh*t, godd**n, d**k, pr*ck, c**k, c**t, and other variatives. There are some scenes of the characters drinking and smoking in an abandoned pub where they reside from the zombies. However, Shawn of the Dead contains very witty and good laughs, especially with the common natures of the zombies which will have viewers cringe yet laugh hysterically at the same time! I dearly hope you parents really discuss and re-think before letting your teenagers watch this. =)

Shaun of the Dead

Great movie for romantic/comedy/horror movie lovers. Its hilarious, silly, and discusting at the same time. In my opinion, the perfect ingredients to a movie like this.

Parents need to understand that this movie is not trying to be an extreme horror movie, I actually found myself laughing through some of this . Overall this is a great movie for teens+.

My 11 year old went to a friend's home and saw this movie. He was upset.
He could not sleep, and he was still bothered the next day.
