Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

age 18+

One of the best! But really intense.

So it depends on what you think, but the violence is a bit much. Blood spurts out everywhere when a zombie is shot. Also, sex is a problem with nudity and some comments and language some language with an incomplete use of motherf***er. I recommend adults watch this first before kids because it is intense. The movie I think has some good messages about survival though. But overall it is really good and scary!

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
