This sci-fi horror hybrid features a lone “normal” human living in Manhattan surrounded by mutated beings that have been infected with a virus. Violence occurs frequently as he clashes with these zombies, resulting in countless numbers being killed by shootings, falls, exposure to sunlight (which is deadly for them) or—in one scene—being run over en masse with an SUV. Some blood is seen in these depictions. Other scenes show massive numbers of potential evacuees in peril and screaming for help. A woman, child, and dog are also endangered in various scenarios. “Jump” scenes occur frequently. Language is limited to only a half-dozen mild expletives and a couple of terms of deity. The film is nearly void of sexual content, except for one female “mutant” who is wearing a revealing tank top.
