A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:
- SSs__ (Two and a Half Tentacles: Barely Lovecraftian; very loose adaptation)
Two tentacles for the Herbert West segment; the rest of the segments seem to have no relationship to Lovecraft's work at all.
Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.
