Sex & Nudity

Much of the following is presented as corny, old vaudeville-type comedy:

A woman assumes that a comment about large knockers refers to her breasts.

The monster unzips his pants in front of a woman (no nudity is visible), she makes a crude remark about his endowment, he lies on top of her and we see him moving as he groans and she moans and begins to sing (intercourse is implied). She begs him not to force sex on her, as she is an engaged woman. He proceeds to force himself upon her anyway. The woman sings joyously, which implies she enjoys it.

A few minutes later the movie cuts back to the Monster and woman, as the woman begs him to have sex with her again.

A man and woman lie in bed, the camera cuts away and we hear the woman moaning and singing (it is implied they are having sex)

We see a man and a woman descending on a platform lying together with sheets covering them (it is implied they had sex and we see their bare chests and arms)

A man kisses a woman's chest and clothed breast, she pulls him off and says they should wait to have sex until they're married

A woman wears a skimpy nightgown (cleavage is visible) and dances seductively for a man

In many scenes, a woman wears a dress and nightgown that reveal cleavage

Violence & Gore

We see a man's body dangling from a rope after being hung (a bag is over his head) and later see him being buried

A blind man accidentally lights a monster's thumb on fire (we see the flesh burning), he groans in pain and runs away, breaking through a door

The monster grabs a man around the throat and chokes him for an extended period of time, a woman injects the monster with a sedative and he releases the man (he appears unharmed afterwards); the monster grabs a man's throat and raises him off the ground while choking him

A man grabs another man by the throat and chokes him.

The monster breaks free from a metal clamp restraining him and begins to charge towards a group of people

The monster is electrocuted (we see sparks and fire)

The monster spies on a woman from her room, we hear her scream and cut to the monster carrying her through a dark woods

A man grabs the throat of a corpse and beats it in anger

A group of people break into a house, using another man to break open the door,

A man drops a jar with a human brain in it and it shatters and spills on the floor.

Loud noises that are meant to startle: Loud thunder claps and lighting flashes in many scenes, a man whips horses, power switches make loud screeching noises when turned on.

A man describes dissecting a brain during class

Profanity

3 scatological terms (2 mild), 2 anatomical terms (1 implied and 1 in german), 6 mild obscenities, 1 religious profanity, name-calling (cuckoo, filthy, rotten, yellow, mother-grabbing bastard, poor lifeless hulk), Jesus Christ , goddamn, 7 religious exclamations

Some smoking cigars/cigarettes and drinking.

In the climax, it's momentarily unclear if one of the main characters is alive or dead.

Rated PG
