Why is The Fog rated PG-13? The Fog is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for violence, disturbing images and brief sexuality

Although many of the deaths in this film take place in the shadows (with only screams for effect), there are depictions of a man being stabbed, violent car crashes and decomposing bodies. A shipload of victims on a burning vessel is repeatedly shown throughout the film. Sexual activity is contained to brief discussions, a passionate shower scene and the portrayal of an unmarried couple in bed together.
