Parents, this interesting and poignant adaptation of the acclaimed novel has plenty of scares and laughs, but the violence and sexual content and language makes it for the same older teen audience as the book. Violence is scattered and not constant, but does include bloody attacks, zombies eating the flesh of humans, shooting, discrimination, brain eating, weapon use and disturbing images. Sexuality is kind of what holds the plot together. There is flirting, kissing, making out, scantily clad women, and lots of sexual references to zombie genatillia and sex between the undead and humans. Language includes two uses of f--k, several uses of s--t and b-tch, and
a--hole is also used. In the end, this romantic zombie action horror comedy is interesting and poignant, but just too mature for young teens. Rated
PG-13 For Brief Thematic Material, Violence & Frightening Images, Some Crude Humor, Sexual Content & Language.
