Clever horror / dramedy winks at horror movie cliches, but also has upsetting deaths, intense situations
TheProBros thinks parents should know that, while Shaun of the Dead is a more lighthearted film than other horror movies, being somewhat of a horror / comedy / drama mixture, it still has several extremely upsetting scenes--including the graphic, prolonged deaths of several beloved main characters. Most deaths are half-offscreen, but we still catch glimpses of impalements, disembowelments, shots to the head and more. The host of main characters use everything from cricket bats to molotov cocktails to fend off zombies, which are killed in plumes of blood and guts, and swearing is very frequent and strong, including "f--k," "c--t," "s--t," "pr--k," and an instance of the N-Word, as well as English slang including derogatory terms and phrases such as "wanker," "bollocks," and "bugger off." The characters also drink and smoke throughout the movie. Overall, TheProBros thinks that Shaun of the Dead, containing blood and gore, swearing and substance consumption, is best for mature tweens and teens around the age of 14.
