Top Ten Most Violent or Goriest PG-13 Rated Movies

I am not saying all of these movies should be re-rated R. Ratings are all about context. Some of these movies have comical violence, some have fantasy violence and some are animated. But some are simply gruesome for that gruesome.
To qualify for this list, the context is irrelevant. This is simply about violence and gore.

The Top Ten Most Violent or Goriest PG-13 Rated Movies

1 Drag Me to Hell

It should be rated R not Pg-13 - CatLeena14

I don't get how a film about a gay couple got an R and this got a PG-13. An adult gay couple isn't what a younger person would want to watch, so they should both have an R. - 445956

Should be rated R.
This comic horror movie has a scene in which a witch's head is crushed and brain matter and eyes spurt onto a character. Also an eyeball is squished quite graphically. - Martin_Canine

You are kidding, right? This film is nowhere near the most violent PG-13 film ever! - Extractinator04

2 The Grudge

A severed jaw is seen. Later, we graphically see where it belonged to. - Martin_Canine

3 Sucker Punch

While the fantasy violence is average PG-13, the storyline set in the brothel contains sexual violence that may not be explicit, but nevertheless psychologically violent. - Martin_Canine

4 Taken

There is a graphic and long torture scene. - Martin_Canine

5 Princess Mononoke

Contains some battle scenes with severed limbs. The PG-13 rating is okay nevertheless, because it is anime movie as well as a fantasy movie and should be easy to handle for viewers 12 and up. - Martin_Canine

6 The Starving Games

Looks like a ripoff of hunger games

Characters get cut in half, limbs are severed, heads are impaled,...
Since it is all comical and looks cheap, the PG-13 rating is okay. - Martin_Canine

7 The Uninvited

Contains gruesome images showing the gory results of murders. - Martin_Canine

8 Vampires Suck

Like The Starving Games, this comedy movie contains scenes where characters get their limbs ripped off, heads knocked off, bones sticking out of the skin,... but again, this is all comic and fake-looking. - Martin_Canine

9 The Dark Knight

It is one of the greatest movies of all time but pushes the boundaries of pg13

10 Beowulf

Grendel stabs his victims, breaks necks, tears off heads and eats them, rips people in half, throws guys into fires, and crushes heads. This description should be enough to tell you what kind of movie this is. - Extractinator04

The Newcomers

? X-Men Origins: Wolverine

The Contenders

11 The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Definitely NOT one of the goriest PG-13 films. - Extractinator04

12 War of the Worlds
13 Tales From Earthsea

Like Princess Mononoke, this has a fair amount of anime fantasy violence including severed limbs in battle sequences. Again I think the PG-13 is okay in this context. - Martin_Canine

9th? You gotta be kidding. There is practically NO severed limbs in this. - Extractinator04

14 Scary Movie 3

Heads fall off, corpses explode,...
All fake-looking and comical. - Martin_Canine

15 Angels & Demons

The movie starts off with a ripped out eyeball being found... then we see where it belonged to. - Martin_Canine

16 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

When Vader turned to the dark side, he and Obi Wan were fighting because Obi Wan was trying to love him, but he hated him back, and when he fell into the lava, he burned, and it was the most graphic burning ever, he was in unimaginable pain, both physical and mental, and I can't see how this didn't get on the list before.

17 The Mummy
18 Alien vs Predator

Best movie ever! - CatLeena14

Well Aline was rated R, Predator was rated or too there was a bunch gore and violents it rwally didn't get a chance to slow down whe the action started

19 Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

This in my books is way lower than it should be. Jumpscares when you least expect them and cranks would give any adults AIDS.

Zombie-like Cranks are scary and sometimes slightly gory shootings occur and also a suicide.

20 The Wolverine

I think James Mangold just bribed the MPAA to grant a PG-13 rating even after he trimmed the level of violence to meet the studios expectations

21 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Tons of deaths in this movie, including the killing of father Han Solo.

22 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
23 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It Really Violent becuase And Gory Should Been R

24 Priest

There's more gore in the two minute opening sequence than in most episodes of Mr. Pickles. Enough said. - Extractinator04

25 Hanna

The violence is realistic and bloody, the only reason this couldn't have been on here earlier is due to how obscure it is. - Extractinator04

26 Stay Alive

Ignoring how bad it is, this is a really bloody movie. The opening scene features a bloody eyeball, and the video game scenes are also brutal, including impalement, dismemberment, hanging, shooting, crossbow action. Oh yeah, and a guy gets run over by a car with blood shown. And yet it's only PG-13. - Extractinator04

27 Prom Night

Its scary but not too gory. - CatLeena14

While not as bad as the original (since it isn't rated R), there are a total of three killings in this film, including blood and impalement wounds. - Extractinator04

28 Cowboys & Aliens

Alright, so it's not as gory as Beowulf, I'll give it that, but there's still a ton of violence, including a bloody medical experiment. - Extractinator04

29 Devil

Oh I like this movie, its very scary but good too. - CatLeena14

PG-13 movies can apparently show a bloody body impaled with a chunk of glass, a dude hanging by the neck on a cord, and a guy's head twisted around backward. - Extractinator04

30 Cursed

How stupid this movie is can leave you feeling "cursed", but that's besides the point of this list. Characters are bitten, scratched, and torn open by werewolves, and blood is shown, unlike in superhero movies. - Extractinator04

31 The Last Exorcism

A young man's face is slashed with a ton of blood. Granted, we don't see the slashing, but it's still really violent. - Extractinator04

32 Avengers: Infinity War


33 The Haunting in Connecticut

The cover of the movie said it all. - CatLeena14

A kid was in a dumbwaiter, guess what happened next? He was BURNED!

34 Casino Royale

I am disappointed in the MPAA for their decision to not grant this movie an R rating, along with the 3 sequels

35 1492: Conquest of Paradise

This is possibly the most violent PG-13 film ever since it's the only PG-13 film to have a 9/10 for violence according to Kids in Mind. - BurnAux

36 Knives Out

There is a dead body with a spider crawling over her face
