Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (TV-PG for mild violence?)

Tentacle Ratings

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

  • SS___ (Two Tentacles: Barely Lovecraftian; could be a very loose adaptation)

Barely Lovecraftian, thanks to the oddities of the room's position in time and space, the mysterious artefacts from the room, the various strange cultists who pursue and use those objects, and their unsettling theories about what might have happened in the room.

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