MPAA Rated R for horrific images

Sex & Nudity

  • In deep shadows, a man is shown shirtless.
  • There are a couple of passionate kisses and a wedding night scene in which the couple loosen each others' clothing and it's implied that they make love after the scene cuts.
  • Dr. Frankenstein marries a woman who was adopted by his family and raised as his sister.
  • When the Monster first lives, strong male rear nudity is shown (his backside along with some brief frontal images)
  • No female nudity is shown.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a part where autopsy on a human is shown mostly off-screen. Nothing graphic.
  • The monster attacks and kills a person, pulling out the victim's heart with bare fists. The very bloody corpse is shown.
  • Someone commits suicide by holding a lamp overhead and breaking it, becoming engulfed in flames (not gory but extremely unnerving).
  • The monster has a lot of stitches and scars on its body.
  • A person is killed off-screen. We hear flesh tearing (nothing is shown).
  • A kid came across the Monster and later runs away but killed off screen.


  • A few mild profanities and insults.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • 'Frankenstein' is not a very violent film but some sequences, such as the re-animated Elizabeth or the scene where a character's heart is ripped might seem quite violent and disturbing.
  • The film is a very sad tale of men unable to accept the Creature because of his appearance
  • If it was released today and the rating changed it would probably be
  • R for some nudity, horror violence and gore
