Is Zombieland For You? A Horror Movie Review

Zombieland Where "Superbad Meets Shaun of the Dead"

Zombieland is not my normal kind of movie but very occasionally I am drawn into watching a movie that I would otherwise avoid like I would avoid zombies...

Zombieland was the subject of a discussion in my family that started with the Zombie Love Song, continued on to What A Zombie Is and finally wound up with a request for the Saturday night movie to be the 2009 zombie-filled horror comedy, Zombieland.

And let me tell you the movie was horror-rible. Lots of Zombies eating flesh (after all that is what zombies do) and brutal situations as a small group of humans try to survive in a world filled with zombies....

So why did I continue watching? Because this blood-soaked movie was not only horrible. It was funny, too, especially THE RULES FOR ZOMBIELAND. And oh yes, the cameo by the famous comedian, possibly the only comedian who can make you laugh just by being in the room...

If you have not seen this movie yet, hopefully this page will help you decide if Zombieland is something you really want to watch and if you HAVE seen it, you can help others decide whether or not to watch it by leaving your opinions and thoughts for others in the polls and in the comment box.

Zombieland Review By Jeremy Jahns

FOUL LANGUAGE WARNING

I love Jeremy Jahns' movie reviews, though I do wish he would ditch the foul language. His review of Zombieland is no different so if you don't like foul language, please pass on his review. If you decide to go ahead and watch it, you will discover that he believes every man has a dream to step up and fight (Zombies) to survive...and that he thinks the movie is good for both the men and the women folk out there.

What Is The Movie Zombieland Rated?

Zombieland is rated 'R.' Find out why.

Common Sense Media rates the movie for individuals 16 and up, calling it "a horror-comedy hybrid that is gory, crude...and not for kids." I agree with the not for kids part and would add that it is not for many adults, too. The Movie Mom rates Zombieland ADULT, citing the constant bad and crude language, explcit and crude sexual references, drinking , constant peril and violence including scenes with characters injured, killed and eaten. I agree.

      I rented it once and then didn't get a chance to watch it. Then I bought it at a yard sale and it disappeared again before I had a chance to see it. Don't think I'm meant to watch this movie LOL!

      I'm crazy about all things zombie, and enjoyed Zombieland quite a bit. Like you, I particularly liked "The Rules"... very funny stuff.

      These movies are great. They are a good blend of humour and scares.

      I think I will skip this one, but I am glad to know what it's all about!

      Probably not a movie I will see. I'm not a fan of Woody Harrelson and the genre isn't something I enjoy.

      I like the word "Zombie." I'll probably skip the Zombieland movie, though.

      You're much braver than I could ever be. Zombieland is definitely, most definitely, not for me

      Haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm planning on watching Zombieland after reading your lens. Great work and thanks for sharing the resources.
