MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: TV-14 (Violence, Profanity)

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)

Of only peripheral interest to Lovecraft fans, about a true crime supposedly committed in the name of a fictional Cosmic Horror "creepypasta" character.

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