Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence, Profanity, brief Nudity and Adult Content)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • S____ (One Tentacle: Debateably Lovecraftian; has almost no direct connection to Lovecraft's work)

Not particularly "Lovecraftian", though the genetically-engineered tentacle monsters might, at a stretch, be thought of as "Deep One hybrids".

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