7 Poltergeist (1982) (Rated PG)

Spielberg and the director actually wanted this movie to be rated PG. I seriously don't know what was going on in their small, insane heads cause this film has a very gory scene of a man's face being peeled off.

There's a scene where a woman's bare-naked nipples are exposed in the shower. This film definitely deserves an R rating.
