How accurate are TV shows and movies in their portrayal of cutting throats and lopping off limbs? [warning; Game of Thrones spoilers]

So, I saw the Red Wedding episode of Game of Thrones
a couple of nights ago. It was...effusive.
After I managed to crawl out from behind the sofa and stop shaking, I got to thinking; how accurate is this? Do cut throats really spray like errant firehoses (GoT example
: trigger warning, obviously). Ditto people getting disarmed (heh) or beheaded (Kill Bill examples
So, MeFites; what say you? Is the Game of Thrones production crew just in league with corn syrup manufacturers? Or are bodies really like this? I'm not allowed to test this empirically, so I thought I would ask you.
