Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence and gore, Adult Content, etc.)

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 directly linked to any of Lovecraft's creations, but there is more than a slight resemblance to Lovecraft's Ghouls and Dreamlands in this film.

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