Most Violent scene ever, more deaths than any other Star Wars scene or any movie in general.

I can’t believe they only rated the movie PG13.

Countless deaths, and the phrase of millions of people crying til death was flat out disturbing and chilling.

16 Darth Vader Burns on Mustafar - Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Such a gruesome and graphic scene, yet it was the result of him hating on Obi Wan and fighting.
It showed us hate leads to consequences, and that’s what he got.
So disturbing, scary, and sad, many people cried, and it was too much even for a PG-13 movie.

17 Maleficent’s Death - Sleeping Beauty

It was pretty intense for a g rated movie that even kids watched.
Sleeping Beauty was a classic though.

Probably the most intense death in the history of Disney animated movies, she was stabbed right on by the ship.
Wonder what little children thought of that.
