By your rationale, a whole bunch of "G"-rated Disney movies should be "R"!You don't have to see anything for it to be graphic, the act of murder is graphic and violent enough.
Do you need someone to attack you the next time you shower in order to fully understand?
Human blood doesn't come in any other color, so that makes no sense that the MPAA would even say that.
Those PG-13 films don't come anywhere on Psycho's level. Violence doesn't have to be depicted on screen, done right referencing and mentioning it can be just effective.
As others noted, there are plenty of movies with lots more murder and violence that got "PG-13".
MPAA rates on what you see on screen, not the suggestion.
Thanos kills billions in "Infinity War" - and we see them evaporate into ashes.
You think a few quick slashes of a knife in a shower is more "graphic" and violent than that?
