Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (perhaps equivalent of a PG or PG-13, for some Profanity and Adult Content?)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SSS__ (Three Tentacles: Lovecraftian)

What is allegedly a found-footage film following Lovecraft's footsteps through a fictional trip to Italy for inspiration actually becomes a sort of loose, low-budget adaptation of "Shadow Over Innsmouth (fiction)".

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