NOTE: THIS IS A STRONG PG-13 THAT PUSHES THE LIMIT AT TIMES.
(And if you take your 7 or 8-year-old to PG-13 movies, that's not my problem. They will most likely be scared)
-Innuendo, and a scene of off-screen sex.
Violence/Gore: The violence scale in this movie is at an R-rated scale. Includes graphic scenes of violence, and some disturbing content. Ex:
-Two women are bitten on the neck by a vampire.
-A large gargoyle falls on a couple, killing them off-screen.
-Construction workers uncover a coffin, and are attacked by a vampire at night. Some are bitten, strangled, choked, etc. You can see blood trickling down nearby cars, and some pooling around the dead workers. Quite graphic and scary.
-People walk off cliffs to their deaths.
-People scream, and are killed off-screen.
-A girl turns into a werewolf, and attacks a witch.
-The last scene is intense, with a witch crumbling apart while being hit with shotgun rounds. The witch pulls out her heart, which is still betaing, inside her, which then crumbles in her hand. Graphic, and somewhat disturbing.
-Blood drips down from paintings in the house. Disturbing.
-The last scene is scary/graphic. The ghost is also scary.
-The main scene to worry about is the construction worker scene. Fairly bloody, and at night.
I thought it was good. Definitely one of Tim Burton's best. My MPAA rating: RATED R FOR HORROR VIOLENCE, DISTURBING IMAGES, COMIC VAMPIRE ACTION INCLUDING BLOOD, LANGUAGE, SMOKING, DRUG CONTENT, AND SOME SEXUALITY.
