Beetlejuice turns into a giant snake monster and attacks and injures at least one person in one of the more genuinely frightening segments of the movie. (Injury is done by falling, not snakebite.) Giant, snake-like creatures called sandworms appear, and one swallows a character whole at the end. Nothing graphic or bloody.

One of the people in the Afterlife is a smoking corpse - in two ways, as his body is literally crispy and smoking, and he is smoking a cigarette. Played for morbid humor, but still kind of gross.

A character relocates their eyeballs, but returns them to normal.

Not really, but we do see a character with slit wrists.

In the afterlife office, there are various characters that are mutilated: cut in half, have a shrunken head, etc.

There is a shrunken head and a man who was obviously run over by a car, but neither happen on screen, we just see the aftermath. (Not bloody)

Not really scary, more jump-a-little-in-your-seat worthy, which is what is kind of expected from this movie.

The whole point of the movie is the afterlife.

In the Afterlife, Miss Argentina reveals that she killed herself by slashing her wrists. The wounds are shown but aren't bloody, and the character herself is fairly blasé about it. It's morbid humor.

There are no on-screen suicides but suicide is mentioned at times. Early in the movie there is gossip that two characters committed suicide (though they actually did not). In another scene the main character (a teenage girl) is writing a suicide note and she talks to other characters about it, but they talk her out of it. I'm not 100% sure but I think suicide is mentioned at other points by both minor and support characters, but they aren't as plot-relevant.

There are no actual s*x scenes or nudity, but there are some sexual jokes. The closest to implied s*x is a scene where ghosts moan and it's mistaken by other characters as sexual. However, the antagonist is a pervert who makes a lot of crude jokes and brief but unwanted advances. There are scenes where he grabs his junk, forcefully kisses a woman and tries to look up her skirt, and touches women slightly without consent. He also flirts with the teenage protagonist (the flirtation is not mutual). In one scene there is a strip club/brothel (unspecified which) with female s*x workers in revealing clothes used to distract the antagonist.

Beetlejuice attempts to marry Lydia, who is strongly implied to be underage. He is only doing so to break a curse, however, and other than a few suggestive comments he makes no real advances on her.

Every bit of gore / disfigurement is cartoonish and family-friendly, though very small children may be disturbed.

Well, they drown. Barbra also has her mouth gated shut, but she can still breathe through her nose.

When one of the ghosts is trying to scare the new owners of the house, one of the ghosts appears hanging in a closet as a jumpscare and remains onscreen for about a minute.

Two characters inside a car fall off a bridge to their deaths, but it's made fairly clear that it's the drowning and not the fall that kills them. Their deaths are not seen.

Near the beginning, two characters crash through a small tunnel and teeter over the edge of a lake. The car falls and they drown off screen. Despite this, the scene is not particularly violent - it played out more as mildly comedic - and over in less than a minute. The car is not seen again and the characters are uninjured. The crash is briefly mentioned after the fact.
