MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: not rated (Equivalent to a TV-PG or TV-G)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • S____ (One and Tentacle: Barely Lovecraftian; debateably Lovecraftian, could be a very loose, uncredited adaptation)

Think of it as a sort of a serial-numbers-filed-off "Case of Charles Dexter Ward", but not quite.

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


Review Links:

  • Review by Dave Sindelar at Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings (Link) - "The acting is adequate but far from inspired, and the direction isn't particularly strong."
