Following the success of the 1984 box office hit Gremlins was Critters. Though Critters wasn’t a fully original idea, that didn’t stop the film from being a great deal of fun. It also brought enough originality to the table that it managed to step out of Gremlins' shadow and stand on its own. Also working in Critters' favor, it stars genre vet Dee Wallace Stone as the matriarch of the family visited by the vicious little aliens.
I don't know if you can count Monster Squad or Gremlins 2 as horror. Monsters do not make a horror movie, ie Monsters Inc.
PG-13 horror movies are just fine depending on your definition of horror. For many horror fans gore, and lots of it, is what makes a horror movie. For me there is nothing even remotely frightening about gore. Saving Private Ryan had a lot of gore--not a horror movie. For me a great horror movie will give me goose bumps, make the hair on the back of my neck stands up, make me not want to see what happens next because I'm afraid of what happens next. The Exorcist is my favorite horror movie; I will not watch this movie unless the sun is up and someone is with me. Yes, it was rated R but today it would most likely get a PG-13. The Grudge is my favorite of recent years. A good horror movie does not need a R rating.
