In addition to the groundbreaking original series in 1990-1991, there was a theatrical film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992) and a 2017 revival series....

Summary

A crime drama mixed with healthy doses of the surreal, this series is about FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who travels to the small logging town of Twin Peaks to solve the murder of seemingly innocent high schooler Laura Palmer. Almost nothing is as it seems, however, and the show's sometimes eerie visuals, oddball characters and wild dream sequences drive the point home.

Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (TV-MA) (Violence, Adult Content, Profanity)

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 never seen this, but from what I've heard, it's not especially "Lovecraftian", except to the extent that some viewers find Lynch's surrealism and small-town-in-New-England setting "Lovecraftian".

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