SYNOPSIS

“One of the more extreme and wild horror-comedies of the past twenty years, “Feast” is a sight to behold for fans of horror and extreme cinema. It’s filled to burst with virtually everything fans crave… sex, drugs and blood by the bucket full. But what sets it apart is also its frantic and frenetic energy, a great sense of self-awareness and its charming and rampant use of humor and subversion, as it bends and breaks every rule and cliché you’ve come to expect from the genre. It’s absolutely phenomenal entertainment, and as its cult audience will attest to, it’s essentially horror-comedy nirvana.-“

WHERE TO WATCH


If you haven’t played it before, They Came From Beyond the Grave! is a campy, grind-house horror system put out by Onyx Path Publishing. It was released in 2021 following a successful Kickstarter, and features a delightful mix of hammy, gorey, erotic thrills and chills based on actual movies from 1970’s Hammer horror film studios. The game uses the Storypath system which you can download an outline for free over on DrivethruRPG.


They Came From Beyond the Grave! has a host of publications that lean into its adult-themed horror movie source material. You can play in haunted abbeys, among slasher inhabited lakes and on alien invaded beaches.

When you do decide to sit down and play They Came From Beyond the Grave!, I present to you the Old Soul – an archetype based on the classic horror character trope of the ‘wise person’, like the Bartender in Feast, who warns others of their impending doom while clinging to a forgotten way of life.
