Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (probably equivalent to a G or PG for made-for-TV Violence and mild Adult Content)

I've not seen this film, but its rating could probably be equivalent to a G or PG for made-for-TV Violence and mild Adult Content, and possibly for the usual weirdness that comes with cultural differences in what might be appropriate for general TV audiences....

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SSS__ (Three Tentacles: Lovecraftian)

A small-screen adaptation of "Shadow Over Innsmouth (fiction)" with some interesting compromises made to translate it for Japanese viewers.

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

Reviews

  • The Lurker in the Lobby, (link) - "...A decent attempt at bringing to the small screen Innsmouth in all of its decay and the degenerate people who live there.... Recommended viewing."
