Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence, Profanity, Brief Nudity, 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). The alien abduction and MK-Ultra plotline and modern setting may make this film's plot especially suitable for a Delta Green setting. Lovecraft's "From Beyond (fiction)" is directly referenced in this film.

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