To start with: I am not going to review this as an Ectocomp game, because it is so well-constructed, in terms of both writing and gameplay, that there is no way I could have guessed that it was made in three hours. I am going to review it as if it were any other interactive fiction game.

As someone who didn't grow up in the heyday of Zork and the other original text adventure games, the use of a grue doesn't goof-ify the tone at all for me. Having never played Zork (but having seen grues used in a couple other games), I come to the game with a general sense that "grue + dark = dangerous", without any additional baggage, so to speak.
I really enjoyed your review, it gave me some extra background; I never would've known this was Speed-IF otherwise!
