Two arguments and various instances of verbal abuse.

Multiple instances of assault.

Trumbull attempts to poison Hinchley twice.

Trumbull smothers a sleeping man.

An instance of gun violence.

A strangulation.

A fight.

An accidental poisoning

None of the violence is graphic.

Two instances of "hell"

One instance each of "old pig" and "old goat".

Trumbull is a drunkard and as such there is a considerable amount of drunkeness throughout the film.

While it's billed as a horror film (which it's not) the entire film is played for laughed, so there are no scenes that could be considered frightening.
