Shaun does recall a childhood memory where Phillip chased him with a bit of wood after Shaun put a Mars bar in the glove compartment of his prized car. Nothing is shown, though.

It's out of focus, but as Shaun and Ed are leaving the Winchester, we see a couple next to a phone booth. Shaun and Ed think that they are making out, but it turns out that the woman is a zombie and the man's head, from the neck up, falls backwards and is hanging off his body.

David is torn apart by zombies and his head is one of the parts that we see torn off. It's one of the more graphic deaths in the movie.

Someone is violently ripped apart, scene is about a minute long. A window breaks and a character is pulled out into the zombies, shut your ears and maybe eyes if you don’t like audio and visual gore and also lots of screaming :)

Fuck is used frequently. There is a scene where Pete rants about his job and says it multiple times. C*nt is also used by Ed, but casually to his friends not as an insult. Ed also gives the middle finger, again with his friends as a joke.
