I thought that this would be relevant post to make with the abundance of PG-13 horrors streaming our way. I am like many, and don't like most films with this rating. However, when you have films like "Jaws" (1975) and "Poltergeist" (1982) scaring audiences around the world with only PG ratings, I think the point has been made that you don't have to have an R rating to make a good or scary horror movie.
All the hatred for films that are PG-13 came from the laziness that has been being put into making recent cheap trick movies like "House at the End of the Street" (2012). Some however, know how to work with what they have, and still make a good scary flick. The list below is of the best motion pictures in the horror genre that were able to pull off the impossible.
1. The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)
2. The Sixth Sense (1999)
3. The Ring (2002)
4. Tremors (1990)
5. The Woman in Black (2012)
