Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that despite this movie's comic and satiric tone, there are some creepy vampire moments. Schreck drinks a bat's blood. There are some decadent performers in a nightclub, and some characters use drugs and behave in a manner that may be very upsetting. There's brief nudity and some strong language.
