BBFC insight: 

<p>DAY OF THE DEAD is a US horror film about a group of survivors, including doctors and soldiers, trying to protect their base from zombies while looking for a cure.</p><dl><dt>Violence</dt><dd><p>There are many scenes of strong violence and gore as the zombies attack and kill humans. This includes images of chest cavities being ripped open, the skin on a man's face being peeled off, and another man's neck torn open before his head is pulled off. There is some focus on the pain and suffering of the victims as they remain alive while being torn apart. Other strong gory images include a man's arm being hacked off with a machete, a zombie's intestines spilling out of his stomach, and a severed head which is still partly alive.</p></dd></dl><p>Other issues include some strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k').</p><p>There are also moderate sex references, including comments about 'jerking off'.</p>
