Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence, Profanity, Adult Content, Sexual Situations)

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)

I've not yet seen this film, but it apparently contains "many nods to Lovecraft", including an occult tome and a mental asylum.

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