THE GRINDHOUSE: COMPILATION - VOL. 1-3

grindhouse [grahynd-hous] n. – A grindhouse or action house is an American slang term for a theatre that mainly shows low-budget horror, splatter and exploitation films for adults.

These aren’t your typical Call of Cthulhu scenarios where some classy, well-dressed investigator sips tea and pours over leather books in some wood paneled library. These are burning dumpsters of pure horror where a fleeing private investigator limps through some filthy back alley on a busted ankle while a howling pack of mutants try to beat them to death with the limbs of their dead friends. In other words, these are not for the faint of heart, and are intended for mature audiences only. Player discretion is advised.

Now you can get the first three volumes of The Grindhouse in one convenient 140 page book, plus a special bonus scenario that is only available in this collection! It includes:

The Crimson King
This scenario takes place in the early 1980s. The characters have been invited to an exclusive nightclub that features early goth music with industrial and punk influences. Illicit drugs and overt sexuality are ubiquitous with the underground nightclubs of the time, and by all accounts The Court of the Crimson King is no exception.

Isle of the Damned
Set on a small island off the coast of Maine, this scenario takes place in the summer of 1974. A group of friends have rented a small vacation house with the intent of spending a week fishing, drinking, and maybe smoking a little weed. Things begin to go sideways when they hear a noise from beneath the cabin that leads them to a hidden door. What lies beyond will change their lives forever.

The Dark Brood
This scenario takes place in July of 1977 at a sleepaway summer camp. The counselors are short-handed due to transportation issues, but by the third day, everything seems to be going smoothly apart from the normal bouts of homesickness and poison ivy. Unfortunately, everything takes a downward turn on the fourth day when the kids begin complaining of nausea and cramps. The counselors decide to give the kids something to settle their stomachs and send them to bed early, convinced that everything will be better in the morning. They couldn’t be more wrong.

Jackknife
This scenario takes place in the 1970s on some highway in the Southwestern United States. Making the long haul across the New Mexico desert with a load of lumber, Jackknife Samson decides to pick up some desperate-looking hitchhikers, but he gets more trouble than he bargained for when they find themselves being hunted by a cult of psychotic snake worshipers for hell. [Note: This is a light sequel to Highway of Blood, and may contain spoilers. So if Keepers intend to run Highway of Blood for their players, they may want to hold off on this scenario, or fold it into the story at the end.]

Hell Block Five
Irongate Penitentiary in Aylesbury, Massachusetts houses some of the most infamous criminals in the United States, and Cell Block Five contains the worst of the worst. One night in the summer of 1978, all of the cell doors unlock and slide open, but there’s no alarm and no guards. Something is very wrong. Note that since this takes place in an all male prison, all of the player characters are male.

First Night
In the Fall of 1980, a group of college girls decide to spend the night in the mansion that was recently purchased by their sorority. Unfortunately, their slumber party turns into a nightmarish fight for survival when they use a witch board and accidentally summon a terrifying entity from another dimension. Unless they can figure out how to send it back, none of them may live to see the dawn. Note that since this involves the members of a college sorority, all of the player characters are female.

The Hoodlums [Bonus Scenario]
In Worcester, Massachusetts, during the summer of 1983, a group of high school friends breaks into an abandoned train station to smoke some weed, but when they hear a voice calling out for help from a drain in the floor, they begin a journey that will take them through the sewers beneath the city into the unseen world that lurks just beyond the shadows.

While this entire book hasn't arrived in my mailbox yet, I'm writing this review specifically about the extra added "Hoodlums" scenario, which I had the pleasure of playing while the author, Alex, was Keeping during the 2022 Miskato [...]

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
