RE: Tarantino.... first of all let me state for the record that I have NEVER...

Once Upon a Time is probably the second least violent of his movies. The Hateful Eight is incredibly violent and incredibly gory.

How gory? There is a scene where the background music is from the movie The Thing (1982) one of the goriest movies in film history. Ennio Morricone Scored The Thing and The Hateful Eight. Kurt Russel starred in the Thing and The Hateful Eight. The former took place in Antarctica - the latter in a Blizzard and both films try to figure out who the Thing (Bad guy in Hateful Eight) is.

In fact the film that is probably the best for you to watch is Jackie Brown. It is not that violent and when it is it is not gory. The story is basically a caper movie about a Bail Bondsman who gets involved with a flight attendant who is bringing in drugs on her flights from Mexico and works with the cops to get the drug dealer. Double and triple cross sort of thing.

Samuel L Jackson feels it's Tarantino's best film. There is no gore and virtually all the violence is off camera. So when someone gets shot you don't see blood. So it's the least bloody film of his catalog.

Edit: In fact, I recall only 4 deaths in the entire movie and a trickle of blood from one. So for Tarantino that is pretty paltry.
