Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (expect the equivalent of an R for Violence, Profanity, Adult Content, etc.)

Tentacle Ratings

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.
