It was actually the director himself who choose to cut out the gorier stuff.
He said so himself on the commentary track on Valentine.
He also "chickened out" on showing some gore in Urban Legends.
But I guess he wanted to make the movies more like "Halloween" and "Texas Chainsaw", where the gore is more implied rather than explicitly shown.
