For movies, I think The Thing sets the standard. The creature is repulsive, but the movie isn't graphically violent and doesn't use jump scares. It's creepy and horrific, but not disgusting or shocking. That's what I expect of horror movies.
You remember a greatly different film than I did. Just take the chest defibrillation scene, for example; it's very gory and very disgusting.

A father taken by time, a brother dead by my own hand.
With this work behold my grief, in Stone and shifting sand.
