NOT FOR YOUNGER TEENS, older may like it

This movie packs unrealistic but very gory violence, characters are good and the intro was excellent but this aint a zombie film more like "its the end of the world" movie. But still a good choice for older teens little kids might not like the cannibalism scene or other nasty picks of the movie. but still its rather funny than disturbing

This title has:

Too much violence
Great messages
Great role models
