We go back to the turn of the century to explore the bloody theatrics of the original, Grand Guignol. With research, original scripts, a performance, and movies set in the theatre, we show some love to the beginnings of 'Live' Horror. Throughout the discussion we cover Blood Fiend AKA Theatre of Death (1967), Blood Sucking Freaks (1976), and The Theatre Bizarre (2011).
