Sex & Nudity

The virginity of the daughters is a major theme of the movie. Much talk about the women's virginal status and the cultural importance of virginity.

A man interrogates a woman about whether or not she's ever had sex, whether a man has touched her "here, or here", gesturing toward her body (out-of-frame).

Both female and male nudity (frontal and rear) and occasional toplessness.

Women are frequently showing in casual undress, or bathing.

Several, fairly graphic sex scenes. (Some of them are not entirely consensual.)

Two women go to bed with a man, and both have sex with him, one at a time while the other watches.

A man performs oral sex on a woman; his head and her genitals are obscured by her leg. They kiss passionately and he kisses her stomach and breasts.

A nude couple kiss and caress each other on a bed.

A man talks about how he'd like to rape a very young woman.

Two women kiss sensually and are later shown in bed together, languidly kissing and cuddling.

A man forces a woman to perform oral sex on him, after slapping her and calling her a bitch.

Dracula's biting of women as well as his seizures have slight sexual overtones, and he is in one scene shirtless.

Two women (mind-controlled by Dracula) accost a younger girl in her bed, kissing her and touching her under her dress to ascertain if her hymen is intact.

As mentioned below, a man rapes a teenage girl. (It's shown less explicitly than the totally consensual sex scenes but is still moderately graphic.)

Violence & Gore

Some gory neck biting scenes with blood shown dripping out of Dracula's mouth.

Dracula consuming the blood of a road accident victim, sopped up in some bread.

A lengthy sequence of Dracula vomiting blood into a bathtub.

A gory stake impalement, with much splattering blood and which shows the wound.

A man is shot in the head - a bullet wound is shown.

Some other milder fight scenes and scuffling.

A man rapes a teenage girl.

A man stabs a woman -- no blood is shown.

A man cuts Dracula's arms and legs off with an axe, and the stumps are shown spurting blood -- however the special effects are not particularly convincing.

Profanity

Some uses of the word fuck and milder swear words.

Verbal references to the loss of virginity and sexual activity. (The word "whore" is used several times to refer to a promiscuous woman or a woman who is not a virgin.)

Talk of "slumming" by sleeping with people of a lower social class.

Alcohol is drunk.

Some graphic violence which may disturb some people.

Mario is sometimes verbally abusive and physically threatening with the women he sleeps with. The implications of rape in his relationship to the girls may be upsetting.

Udo Kier's appearance as Dracula is quite frightening. He is a sinister figure and visibly sickly throughout, and his frequent convulsions and vomiting are alarming. A scene where he licks up the blood from the youngest daughter's torn hymen from off the floor may be particularly gross/unpleasant.
