A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:
- S____ (One Tentacle: Debateably Lovecraftian; has almost no direct connection to Lovecraft's work)
These films are apparently set in Dunwich, and at least the first film is allegedly based on or inspired by a Lovecraft story, though it seems that little (if any) of Lovecraft's work actually made it into the finished films.
Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.
