Campy but repulsive horror film about a small town besieged by world-conquering space slugs that turn its residents -- starting with Michael Rooker -- into flesh-eating zombies, leaving it up to the local police chief (Nathan Fillion) and a handful of survivors (including Elizabeth Banks and Tania Saulnier) to save the day. Directed by James Gunn, tongue firmly planted in cheek, the film's affectionate nods to B-horror movies like "Dawn of the Dead," wry flashes of twisted humor and clever social commentary are eclipsed by its pervasive vulgar, nauseating and grisly elements. Strong and exploitative horror violence and gore, many gross-out images, some sexual situations, blurred shower nudity and unrelated brief rear nudity, adultery, pervasive rough and sexually crude language, as well as profanity and some irreverence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
