Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: TV-MA (violence, profanity, nudity, sexual situations)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SS___ (Two Tentacles: Barely Lovecraftian; vaguely similar in tone, could be a very loose adaptation)

Built on the basic sealed-evil-in-a-can plot in which the weird building contains a sealed door to The "Other Side", where an evil older than mankind is imprisoned and awaits an opportunity to escape and rule the world in chaos and madness.

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