A man and a woman have sex: he thrusts from behind as she leans over a sink, and her bare breasts are visible as well as the side of her bare buttocks (this scene only goes on for about 5 seconds, but after the scene where Ving Rhames lifts a weight, it goes back to this one, this time breasts not revealed). This happens fast so it is not very graphic.
A man and a woman who are married kiss and caress each other in a shower (we see them through a sheer shower curtain and their bare buttocks and her bare breast are evident, but very blurred.)
A woman climbs on top of, and kisses her husband in bed.
A young man and a young woman flirt and lie on a sleeping bag together.
We see a some bare breasts in some scenes, one belonging to an undead character and another to a human, shown around the credits.
2 women briefly kiss in the end credit scene.
Lots of blood spraying.
A man hits a zombie with a croquet mallet, breaking it. Then, as the zombie attacks him he impales the head of the zombie with the broken piece of wood. Blood is seen coming out of the bottom of his head and as the spike exits the top of the zombie's head, we see brain matter and blood squirt out.
A man has his neck bitten by a zombie. We see veins and entrails get ripped out, and see the inside of his neck. During this scene there is a lot of blood spraying out of the man's neck. This is the only scene when the flesh being torn out from a bite is seen.
Many zombies are shot in the head, usually no blood. In one scene in particular, a zombie's head is blown apart, sending pieces of it flying around the room. The walls are covered in fleshy chunks and brain matter as well as large amounts of blood and gore after this scene.
A man stumbles and accidentally kills a woman with a chainsaw. We see the chainsaw slice her from the shoulder down to her waist. The saw rips her shirt apart as it rips her flesh apart sending blood and gore spraying around the area, even on the windscreen, making the bus crash and topple over, killing the man as well For a quick moment we also see the insides start coming out and hit the chainsaw, making for a gory mess. This happens VERY fast though.
A man is hit by a speeding ambulance. We see his body literally break in half as the ambulance collides with him sending him flying into a yard.
A speeding car crashes into a gas station, resulting in a large and violent explosion.
A man gets surrounded by a horde of zombies, and as he is about to get eaten, he blows up a tank of propane gas, killing many zombies as well as himself.
A legless zombie is shot point blank range in the head with a shotgun. The impact is not seen, but we see the remains of his head splatter against a wall behind him.
We see many reanimated corpses walking around in various stages of decay, with opaque eyes (or the lack thereof), darkened veins, limp rotten skin, exposed innards/bones, and usually with many gruesome injuries inflicted on their bodies prior to death that have since coagulated and rotted out.
The reanimated corpse of a large woman charges at a group of survivors. One of the survivors grabs a fireplace poker and stabs it into the eye of the zombie and pushes it in deeper until it breaks out of the back of the zombie's head, killing it.
The group of survivors turns kerosene tanks into homemade bombs to deal with the hordes of zombies. We do not see an initial impact from the explosion but see burning bloody limbs lying everywhere afterwards and see zombies walking with severe injuries from explosions (missing body parts, on fire, mutilated, etc...)
Many zombies got sliced with a chainsaw through the side of a bus. We see legs and arms get sawed off, a few zombie's torsos get sawed open, and we see one unlucky zombie's head get sawed in half, causing what's left of its brain to ooze out. This is the only scene in the film depicting extremely explicit and disturbing gore.

At least two instances of smoking.
The first half of the movie contains many "Boo" scenes which are a bit frightening.
Lots and Lots of zombie-almost-bit-my-arm-off scenes.
There are many close calls and chase scenes, all quite intense.
The movie is very gory.
Many lead characters are killed.
There is a pregnant woman who turns into a zombie later in the movie and yet she's still kept by her husband and is hidden from the group. she gives birth to a zombie baby, which is shortly after killed by a gunshot to the head off-screen. This scene is disturbing and frightening.
