This card is named after “Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol”, a Parisian theater well known from the 1897 to 1962, specializing in horror shows, not supernatural horror, but plays about things such as surgery gone wrong, insanity, hypnosis, dis-figuration, etc. It was considered a place where you went for experiences, not shows, and was considered extremely formative to the genre of horror.
The theatre’s name means “The Theater of the Grand Puppet”, taking its name from Guignol, a Punch-and-Judy esque puppet.
