MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (equivalent of a PG or PG-13 for Violence, Profanity, brief Nudity)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SSs__ (Two and a Half Tentacles: Almost Lovecraftian)

The short name-drops "The Thing With a Thousand Young", and at least hints at other elements of the "Cthulhu mythos".

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

 Spoiler Section (Highlight to Read)

In this disturbing Lovecraftian fairytale, a man awakes naked and confused in an isolated mountainous region. He soon encounters a strange local who offers to help him. The stranger recounts local folklore that speaks of a murderous religious cult, and an insect-like fertility god that is said to dwell deep within the mountain. The two men go underground in search of the truth and soon find themselves in a stygian black temple of horror.
