re:cut. - keep this. Bad and outdated interpretation of the rules.

The difference between Nightmare Fuel and High Octane Nightmare Fuel is to do with intent. If the creator intended to scare, it's High Octane. So Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids is High Octane Nightmare Fuel, because it's meant to be scary.

Okay... The examples seem pretty intentional, though.

Extremely so. This is the same guy who wrote all those Yellow Peril stories. I'll try and put them onto a High Octane Nightmare Fuel page.

"Just" Nightmare Fuel? I don't remember Homefront being marketed to kids...

The distinction between Nightmare Fuel and High Octane Nightmare Fuel has nothing to do with who it's marketed to, it's about whether or not the scariness was purposeful

I'd say it's very purposeful. We are meant to be terrified of China Korea invading America. The scenes are intended as High Octane Nightmare Fuel.
