Peter Jackson's Bad Taste and Dead Alive. They'd both be rated PG today.

The old Dracula movie. I watched it again recently and was seriouly disappointed how it was done. They didn't even do the staking good. They could have had a shot when he puts the stake on Dracula's chest and then switched to a shot lower then the coffin and shown him hitting the top of the stake (into Drac).

The fine 2002 Australian film "The Tracker" starring David Gulpilil (of Rabbit-Proof Fence and Walkabout) cuts to still paintings depicting violent moments, such as a massacre.

Scarface, specifically the chainsaw scene, which was barely offscreen.

Star Wars, when Alderaan becomes one with the Force. We don't see those "millions of voices" that Obi-Wan speaks about...

Seems really violent but it's all due to the excellent editing, you barely see anything compared to today.

The scene's shock value comes from
Spoiler:
the audience thinking Blonde is about to burn the cop. He is standing there with a lighter when all of a sudden squibs start going off and THEN it cuts to Orange with the gun.

I have to admit that I haven't seen this film, but I have read that alot of the violence in Cat People (1942) occurs offscreen.
