Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (perhaps equivalent to 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:

  • Horror News dotnet, (link) - "While we would like many more questions to be answered, the 'lack of' feels ok in this instance to allow for the mystery elements to fully embellish...."
  • Brett Gallman at Oh The Horror (link - " While the enigmatic energy field isn’t completely explained, it doesn’t matter too much. ... The ending is questionable in its ambiguity, but I think you can mostly draw out the point of it all."
  • Mike Long at DVD Sleuth (link) - "...The Corridor has chosen to go the vague route, so we learn basically no specifics of what is happening. I would venture to say that the story is so vague that one would have a hard time even guessing what causes the corridor. ...thankfully the men are never "stranded", as their snowmobiles still work, so we don't have to deal with that hackneyed plot device."
  • Kyle Scott at The Horror Hotel (link) - "I could go on for hours. The Corridor does what so few films manage these days. It turns the gears of the mind, and challenges the viewers perceptions in a way that's accessible and engaging, while never losing sight of the fact that at its heart, its about the tragic destruction of friendship."
