MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (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)

Not very Lovecraftian, but a race of tentacle-parasite-vampire-monsters wouldn't be far out of place in "the Mythos". It's sort of like a cavern-setting Alien with a little bit of The Thing here and there.

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