No sex or nudity shown during the movie.

-Two vampires named Aleera and Veronica kiss and caress a Dracula's neck. (The two women are his wives.)

-A woman asks a man what she can do to repay him for saving her life. He whispers in his ear and she replies saying, "You can't do that." He tells her that he can and we see them waking up together the next morning. (She is in a corset and a nightgown.)

-Dracula and Anna dance together. She is wearing a low-cut ball gown. He appears to have some kind of supernatural hold over her and is seen caressing her cleavage as she tries to protest.

-Van Helsing and Anna fall to the ground. She lands on top of him with her crotch near his face.

-When the female vampires transform, their form is clearly visible. (For example, their breasts are clear but no nipples are shown. etc)

-Anna wears tight, leather pants and a white shirt with a corset. Throughout the movie, it can sometimes appear that she's topless but this isn't the case.

-The female vampires in their human form wear low-cut/midriff revealing dresses.

-Van Helsing is bare-chested with short, ripped trousers at the end of the film.

-Mr. Hyde's trousers slip down revealing the top of his buttocks.

-Anna is hit by Aleera and falls to the ground. Aleera grabs her by the neck and lifts her up. Aleera transforms into a vampire and sticks her tongue out to which anna, helpless and gasping for air, turns her face away in disgust. Aleera's tongue becomes long, like a snake's tongue, and plants it on Anna's face. She slowly licks Anna's Cheek and licks the entire side of her face then licks her own teeth with Anna's sweat. She laughs at her and anna grimaces and tries to look away as Aleera enjoys this.

Most of the violence is between werewolves and vampires throughout. There's no blood apart from one scene.

-A man draws a sword on the other. As one steps forward, the man with the sword stabs it straight through him. He bares his fangs and bites the man's neck. (The squishing sound of the sword is heard and seen protruding through his back. The actual timing of the killing is seen in silhouette but blood is seen on the vampire's mouth after.)

-A man is tied to a tree and attacked by a werewolf. He manages to jump up the tree as a woman lunges towards the werewolf with a sword.

-A werewolf is locked in a cage and shot at. (Goo is seen spurting from the wolf.) It escapes and chases a woman to a cliff edge. Before it attacks her, a man jumps in the way; falling off the cliff and into a river below along with the werewolf.

-A werewolf and vampire fight each other. They snap and snarl at each other, flinging each other across the room. The werewolf bites into the vampire's neck. A large wound is seen, gushing black-ish blood and the vampire begins writhing around before disintegrating.

-A female vampire is shot with an arrow doused in holy water. She is pinned to the roof of a building, screams in pain and disintegrates.

-A female vampire is hit by hundreds of silver stakes. She shown disintegrating as she falls through the air.

-A woman stabs a female vampire in the chest with a stake. The vampire screams in pain and bubbles away in green goo.

-Various other fights between vampires, humans and werewolves throughout the movie. The ones listed above are the main fight scenes.

4 mild obscenities, 9 religious exclamations.

A woman declares that a man deserves a drink. Vampires drink blood in wine glasses. Various scenes of casual drinking.

The fights between werewolves, vampires and humans can be intense/violent and frightening to children. The werewolves transformation is intense and scary for young children. Female vampires change into demonic winged creatures. Dracula changes into a demonic winged creature (Along the same lines as the female vamps but on a much larger scale.) Frankestein's monster may be scary to young children. The demonic vampire children may be frightening.

The ending may be sad to viewers.
