Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (probably equivalent to a PG or PG-13 for Violence and perhaps Profanity and Adult Content)

Tentacle Ratings

A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:

  • SSS__ (Three Tentacles: Lovecraftian)

I've not seen this film, but it seems to be a loose adaptation of (or perhaps sequel to) Pickman's Model (fiction).

Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.
