Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: PG-13 (Profanity, Violence, brief Nudity)

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 especially "Lovecraftian", though the "tentacle-monster" intelligent race discovered in The Abyss might, at a stretch, be compared to Deep Ones.

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