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 Lost World: Jurassic Park

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Angels & Demons

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

12 The Mummy
13 The Dark Knight
14 Scary Movie 3

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

15 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

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

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 Alien vs Predator
18 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
19 Beowulf
20 Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

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

21 War of the Worlds
22 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

It Really Violent becuase And Gory Should Been R
