Land of the Dead
Source: Catholic News Service
Repulsively violent fourth (and let's hope final) chapter in director George A. Romero's pulp zombie saga set in an apocalyptic near-future where what is left of humanity is holed up in a in a class-divided, fortified city lorded over by a ruthless opportunist (Dennis Hopper) and besieged by an army of newly sentient undead, with only a band of mercenaries (Simon Baker and John Leguizamo) standing between survival and total zombification. While the zombies have "evolved," the campy horror franchise remains a smor-gores-bord of stomach-churning mayhem, despite pretensions of social satire. Pervasive bloody violence and gore, including graphic dismemberment and cannibalism, some sexual content with brief partial nudity, some drug content, a same-sex kiss, recurring rough and crude language, as well as some profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
