Towards the beginning of the movie, a couple swerves to avoid a dog on the road, but end up crashing their car. The dog is unharmed.

Spiders in two separate parts, one at the very beginning and one at the introduction of Lydia, and a fly that meets Betelgeuse. The fly is in very close detail, so if you don’t like bugs, I would stop watching when you hear the buzzing and resume watching when you hear a man speaking (not Betelgeuse, but a man with a normal voice)

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.

Sort of? A teenage girl is harrassed by a ghost and then nearly forced into a marriage with an adult male ghost (same one). There is not any abuse by the parents beyond an occasional cutting word from the stepmother.

There is only light social drinking, no depictions of alcoholism or alcohol abuse.

Beetlejuice often makes sexually charged remarks towards Barbara Maitland, even kissing her without her consent.

I'm not sure this counts as amputation, but a ghost in the afterlife is divided into two parts, cut around her midsection.

There is a very flattened ghost, and it can be assume his death was by a car or steamroller? Nothing is shown of his actual death, however. Just a very flat ghost.

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)

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.

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

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.

Lydia’s mom died before the events of the film. Lydia’s stepmother is fine at the end of the movie.

Not specifically “jump scares,” but there are a few startling parts. If you’re sensitive to jump scares, (like me,) at one point, Adam opens a window to see Jane right there, A “sculpture” crashes through a window at the end of an uncomfortably long shot of Charles at a kitchen sink, the sand worm breaking through the door, when Barbra transformed her face in the closet, when Beetlejuice says, “you wanna see something scary and turns to them and his face opens up (scare chord is used so just close your eyes) and the one that jolted me the most was at the end of the Day-O song, where bloody hands reach out if the bowls and grab their faces.

Beetlejuice himself looks a tad clownlike with the white makeup and green hair but he is not a clown.

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.

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's body horror, but body dysmorphia is something entirely different.

One of the supporting characters is suicidal and is seen writing a suicide note at one point.

there is a scene early on where lydia's stepmother is pinned against the house by a large sculpture and there's not much room to move, but this is rather brief.

At the dinner party, a woman snarkily says, "Paranormal? Is that what they're calling your kind these days?" emphasizing "your kind" towards a male designer (Otho) who is portrayed as flamboyant and effiminate. I'm a bit surprised by the "no" responses to this question, LOL.

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.

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.

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