What level of violent and horrible contents will Apple allow on App Store?

I wanna develop a violent and horrible game. For something that more violent than iDracula/Zombieville USA, e.g. headshot/body cutting, will it be allowed on App Store? Is there any app that are horrible so that Apple will banned?

Is there a reference list of things that Apple will banned on internet?

Thanks!!

I submitted this about 2 weeks ago and am still waiting on approval. I know they're probably just backed up right now, but still... I'm also curious how far is too far.

Yeah curious to see if that gets through!!

Although i wonder if simply changing the name to something less direct would make it more acceptable?

You can try out our game, Sparta , and determine if that is as bloody as your game. The heads of our guys fly off.

Hello Bat, let's play a little game... you have 10 hours to design a non-violent App Store educational app targetted for little children at the age of 3. You must include blood, and if you don't manage to have it accepted by Apple, this Macbook will explode. Sorry, the door is locked.

I also just lost the Game, for those who know what I'm talking about.

Some change in Apple policies, or we just happened to hit upon the same reviewer?
