Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (graphic and extreme Violence, Profanity, Adult Content)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • S____ (One Tentacle: Debateably Lovecraftian; has almost no direct connection to Lovecraft's work)

Apparently "Lovecraftian" in the sense that it calls what reality is into question, and in the sense that cultists have obtained a special mind-shattering insight into the workings of reality which have altered their grasp on humanity.

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