Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: not rated (probably the standard Violence, Nudity, Adult Content, and Profanity for the genre)

Tentacle Ratings

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

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

I've not seen the film, but based on the trailer, it looks like a pastiche on Lovecraftian themes, rather than a direct adaptation of a specific story.

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