Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: PG-13 (Violence, Profanity, Adult Content)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • Ss___ (One and a Half Tentacles: Vaguely Lovecraftian)

This franchise appears to mainly be linked to Lovecraft by way of an apocalyptic tone, gigantic "tentacle monsters", portals to hidden worlds, and a few other vaguely Lovecraftian themes.

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