A teenage boy with binoculars checks out a teenage girl undressing (no nudity is seen, just underwear) Frankenstien's monster accidently takes a photo of a teenage girl next door undressing (no nudity is seen).

A climactic plot point involves the use of a virgin for a spell. The teenage sister of one of the leads ends up confessing that she is not a virgin. The 5 year old sister is used instead b/c she is a virgin

A kid mentions that the teenage girl lets guys "touch her tits".

The kids have an ongoing argument regarding whether or not wolfman has genitals. A boy kicks the wolfman in the testicles and exclaims in surprise "Wolfman's got nards!?!"

This film is actually quite violent in some places: A werewolf is (literally) blown into bloody pieces (after he attacks a boy and his father) and then pulls his parts back together, a swamp creature has a bloody hole blown through his chest by a shotgun after he strangles some policemen, a car is blown up by dynamite(with someone in it) by Dracula, then the survivor fires bullets at him, we see 2 vampiresses get shot in the heart by a bow and arrow (blood is seen) and another getting stabbed in the heart by a wooden steak, some mild slapstick violence involving Frankenstien's monster and the kids, a man storms into a police station throwing a violent tantrum and eventually is shot by police, later he comes back as a werewolf and strangles someone (suggested bite), Dracula is impaled on a fence and then gets stabbed with a stake in the heart before being sucked into a vortex. . Some skeletal corpses pop out of the ground. The Mummy character is skeletal and corpsey looking.

Some rude (suggestive) comments made by the kids, and quite a lot of swearing/profanities like s**t, d*mn, h*ll, b**ch both made by and directed towards children.

A kid refers to women as "Skaggs", two teenage boys refer to another character as a "faggot" twice, the regular kids talk about someone being a "homo". A kid calls his friend "buttlove". They use the term "phead" several times. They shout 'kick him in the "nards"' several times. Again, not profanity, but the kid Horace is often referred to as "Fat Kid" and teased about his weight.

A very little girl clearly says "don't be chickenshit."

The oldest member of the group: Rudy, smokes cigarettes in some scenes. One of the kids dads often smokes.

The monsters might scare little ones, the last 15 minutes of the film might be intense for some.
