Common Sense review is slightly misleading...

While this film is interesting, and really well filmed, my review is mostly to address the use of profanity in the film that common sense media seemed to overlook. The film was said to have only minor language (crap, a$$), but it actually had a bit more (g-d, s word, and several other derogatory terms). I usually come to common sense media to find out the specifics on a film, but this time I was a bit shocked to see that the reviewer had completely overlooked this. Movie is a little violent/scary but also filmed so most of the actually violence isn't shown. Very emotional and interesting pov for a film that is still about...zombies.

This title has:

Too much swearing
