Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (expect the equivalent of a PG for violence)

Tentacle Ratings

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

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

Not directly "Lovecraftian", though the Edgar Allan Poe stories in this anthology had a direct influence on Lovecraft's fiction.

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