MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (probably equivalent to a G or PG with some mild adult themes handled in a documentary manner)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SSS__ (Three Tentacles: Lovecraftian, was probably written by Lovecraft himself.)

Not really "Lovecraftian" in the sense that a fictional horror movie might be, but still of documentary interest to Lovecraft fans.

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