Suitable for: Teens and up.
What you should know: Nicholas Hoult stars as a zombie who seems to be returning to life, thanks to a young woman (Teresa Palmer) he meets and rescues in this movie set at a time when the world is divided into humans living behind enormous walls, zombies and savage skeletons. John Malkovich plays the woman's zombie-hunting father.
Language: One f-word, three or so uses of profanity and maybe 10 mild four-letter words.
Sexual situations and nudity: Limited to kisses.
Violence/scary situations: Onetime suburban neighborhoods have been reduced to ghost towns with streets and yards full of rubble. An abandoned airport is now home to zombies, including a few children, who wander aimlessly. Humans hunt zombies and try to shoot them in the head, and zombies bite people and, sometimes, eat their brains. The advanced skeletal Boneys are the most menacing of all and attack with a vengeance. There are references to family members who have died and you see some bloody gnawing along with a car crash.
Alcohol and drug use: Images of beer and wine.
