Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (equivalent of a PG-13 for 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)

Mostly just a standard-issue Gothic horror story about a secret locked in the basement of an abandoned, isolated New Zealand farm house. Most useful as a source of material for the very similar Call of Cthulhu RPG scenario, "(The Haunting)".

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