Without further ado, here are some of the best PG-13 horror movies that are too good.

The Final Girls (2015)
For fans of the slasher movie genre, here is one flick for you with some awesome slasher movie with some great meta-commentary. While a young woman grieving about the loss of her 80’s actress mother, she is pulled into one of her mom’s most famous slasher movies. After getting reunited, the mother-daughter duo must now fight off the film’s killer.
This adaption is of a lesser-known tale from Stephen King. The movie may be PG13, but it has enough of King’s trademark pulpy gore and scatological humor to give you chilling ghostly thrills and psychological horrors.
The Ring (2002)
There is nothing more spooky than The Ring, when it comes to PG13 horror. It is by far the scariest PG-13 movie ever made. The movie is an adaptation of the Japanese film Ringu, which is outstanding source material. The concept of unavoidable viral death and some scary iconography, this own is a cult classic.
What Lies Beneath (2000)
What Lies Beneath definitely has some major PG13 chills to offer. The movie revolves around the life of Claire and Norman who has moved back to his old house. As usual, the couple finds some spooky stuff happening around them. The movie is best for its casting of Harrison Ford. It’s not every day that you see him play the bad guy. (even though he is often the on-screen scoundrel).
