The BBFC commented:

This work was originally seen for advice. The company was advised that the film was likely to receive a 15 certificate but that their preferred 12A classification could be achieved by making some changes. The company was advised:

  • to reduce moments of threat and horror involving zombie-like characters, and

  • to reduce the focus on injury in a scene in which a man is beaten for information.

When the film was formally submitted, changes had been made and, consequently, the film was passed 12A.
