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

1 Drag Me to Hell

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

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 Contenders

11 The Lost World: Jurassic Park

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

12 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

13 Scary Movie 3

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

14 Angels & Demons

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

15 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.

16 The Mummy
17 Alien vs Predator

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

18 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.

19 War of the Worlds
20 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

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

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

It Really Violent becuase And Gory Should Been R

23 Priest

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

24 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

25 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

26 Prom Night

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

27 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

28 Devil

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

29 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

30 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

31 Avengers: Infinity War


32 The Haunting in Connecticut

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