It Came From the Late Late Late Show

by Bradley K. McDevitt and Walter H. Mytczynskyj

1989, Stellar Games, Ohio | 56 pages | illustrated

Role Playing in the Bad Movies! A mixture of Mystery Science Theater 3K and Paranoia. The system is comparable to a simplified version of Call of Cthulhu, Runequest, or Basic Roleplaying System. Players play actors in bad movies worthy of being shown on late night public access television, where the GM takes on the role similar to a film director. Settings are usually in typical horror locations: cabins deep in the woods, campsites near stagnant lakes, and so forth. Similar to Hong Kong Action Theater, characters are actors who can move from one movie to another.
