Suggested film rating: R for pervasive strong zombie violence and gore,terror, disturbing content and some sexual situations .
There are a few interrupted sex scenes. People are seen in underwear, no nudity.
A character is suggested to have been prostituting herself in exchange for survival and goods. She obviously now wants nothing to do with her past. This happened before the start of the show's plot, so it is never seen, but a man who knew her before tries to kidnap her an mentions her past. All of this is suggested, so it is never mentioned graphically, just alluded to with sentences such as: "I did what I had to do..." Younger viewers may not even understand.
A man and a woman are seen kissing in bed in underwear as part of a prostitution deal (see violence and gore for more details)*
Some sexual references.
A guy and a girl pretend to have sex by rocking the trailer truck and making orgasmic noises as a distraction.
||The violence in this show is mostly portrayed with blood splatters and killings just off the screen or quickly edited so no gore is shown, with the occasional aftermath. There are many exceptions, though, such as all slingshot kills, which show parts of the head actually being blown off. Z nation's episodes will probably increase in graphic nature if the series starts to earn a higher budget.
All of the zombies have blackened blood and dead faces, most with dead-eye contact lenses.
There is the occasional shot of zombies feasting on bodies, including lots of blood and some holes/wounds on the corpse.
There are many Stabbings, mostly just off camera or with the actual object not shown entering the skull. Blood splatters are always present. Once in a while though, the actual stabbing is seen.
Many shootings, blood and small bursting wounds sometimes seen.
Zombies are seen on fire.
A zombie dog and zombie baby are seen. They are bloody and creepy looking. This may offend or upset viewers. Both of their dead bodies are seen.
People hit each other.
Many people are seen bloody with body parts missing. They are hung from the ceiling with bandages covering them. This is very disturbing but not very graphic. (Philly Feast)
Many zombies are crushed by a rolling object, leaving behind guts and limbs.
People Beat and shoot each other.
