SHAUN OF THE DEAD is a 2004 UK comedy horror in which zombies attack London. It was originally classified 15 for cinema and DVD release in 2004. This cinema re-release is rated 15 for very strong language and bloody horror.

There are over 30 uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'), as well as a single use of very strong language ('c**t'). The single use of very strong language is unthreatening and occurs during banter between male friends. There are also uses of milder bad language, including 'bollocks', 'twat' and 'prick'.

The film features several scenes of strong bloody horror, in which people fight off and kill zombies or zombies attack humans. This includes sight of blood spurts as people attempt to kill zombies and sight of a man being torn apart by zombies, with bloody detail. However, the violence, blood and gore all occur within a clearly fantastical context, often lightened by humour.

SHAUN OF THE DEAD also includes some verbal drug references and some crude comic sex references.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
