Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (perhaps PG-13 for Violence, Profanity, Adult Content)

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 exactly a "Lovecraftian" film in the sense of being based on any of Lovecraft's work or containing references to his creations, though some viewers may find the location and atmosphere suggestive of Lovecraft's work (an "Eldritch Location" film).

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

Reviews

Review Links:

  • Courtney Button at Horror Cult Films, (link) - "Some fairly standard haunted house scares and a sometimes slow pace gives way to a well plotted and constructed finale that bolsters the whole film."
  • Richard Cross at 20/20 Movie Reivews, (link) - "...it does an admirable job of hiding its true colours until confounding its audience by introducing an unexpected dimension in the third act which transforms it into an altogether different story to the one we thought we were watching."
  • James Pemberton at UK Horror Scene dotcom, (link) - "8/10 - it juggles a fantastic supernatural story along with strong narrative juxtaposition between past and present and some superb performances especially from its main lead, in creating a distinctly normal but tragic character that holds our attention, and also superb direction... keeps pulling tricks on the viewer that do not insult our intelligence but rather keeps us engaged to the end that lend substance to the film...."
