SCREAMING AT RANDOM SHIT!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Lots goin’ on around our parts, so let’s jump into it!

First off, tons of thanks go out to you Scream Freaks who’re still out there fightin’ for our show to play freely without any censorship from Troma. More of you have told us about you contactin’ them, and we’re humbled each and every update. While there hasn’t been any change in their bafflin’ decision to shut down non-profit parody reviews celebratin’ their movies, we have been in touch with some of their past filmmakers by chance! We informed B.C. Butcher director Kansas Bowling of her characters bein’ animated but censored after she liked a fan’s tweet suggestin’ we review her flick, and the director of Attack of the Tromaggot reached out to us in response to reviewin’ his film in Screaming Soup! episode 31, Attack of the Tromaggot vs Shrunken Heads. That was a big shock, and we got to explain to him why his movie monster’s break into animation had to be censored. The latest appeal to Troma we’ve been made aware of comes from loyal Scream Freak Paladin Demo, and he’s allowin’ us to share his words below. Thank ya kindly!

In other news, we’re currently workin’ with the musical talent of Brian Barnes aka Grim Reaper from Your Final Answer to produce original stock music for Screaming Soup! which is a lot of fun. If you haven’t heard yet, Brian’s retired the monkey and banana skits to try his hand at a new show called Mondopiece Theatre reviewin’ some really obscure flicks you might have never heard of or care to watch. He just released his 4th episode this week reviewin’ some Mexican biker gang flick, so check it out.

And speakin’ of workin’ with such great talent, we’re doubly excited to be joined by Lost Story Studios, a creative gang of guys behind some of Full Moon’s latest mayhem like the Gingerdead Man comics and Full Moon’s latest feature, Evil Bong 666. After meetin’ on the convention circuit, they overheard us bitchin’ about needin’ a better Gingerdead Man voice for upcomin’ episodes, and they offered to step up to the mike and spit some Busey inspired lines for starvin’ art. Crazy brave fellas who are sure to elevate the quality of the show!

We also want to give another shout out to the winner of this past “Spot the Dollman Contest,” James Lohmann from Markham, IL. After so many complaints the Dollman was too easy to find in previous episodes, we made this round especially challengin’, and he rose to the occasion. Those are some good eyes, James! You couldn’t have won a Full Moon DVD and original Screaming Soup! art without them.


Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

If you need the hook-up with instant Troma and Full Moon movies, we’d suggest watching Troma’s films for free on their Youtube channel, and you can get full access to Full Moon’s catalog of work from their movies to their Videozone clips at Full Moon Streaming and their Amazon channel.

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT NIGHTBEAST / CASTLEFREAK!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As promised, we’re seein’ this fantasy fight through, censors be damned, and present the next epic chapter in this alien freak throwdown in the sky! Tensions continue to rise as toxic mutants continue testin’ Full Moon’s tolerance for their fragile truce, and it wouldn’t take much to tip everything back into full scale war with Deadwest and the gang caught in the middle! And if that weren’t enough trouble, just what the hell is Full Moon secretly workin’ on and who will pay the price?

As you can see, the Troma censorship continues to be a problem with them still not willin’ to “participate,” but don’t let that stop you from lettin’ your voice be heard. Some of you have made more videos requestin’ Troma allow us to play these non profit parody reviews uncensored, and some have even gone above and beyond, approachin’ them at conventions to vent about it. We were hesitant to post any contact info we had for Troma before, because we didn’t know how exclusive they were and didn’t want the headache of bein’ told we released any sensitive information, but we did find some publically posted emails on their official site you can reach them at. So, if hittin’ them up through YouTube or Twitter ain’t your thing, you can reach Troma at lloyd@troma.com, pr@troma.com, customerservice@troma.com, or marketing@troma.com.

And if you haven’t heard, today’s a big day for Full Moon as well with the premier of their newest flick, Evil Bong 666! If you haven’t seen any of this series yet about stoners gettin’ into trippy adventures with a magically sassy she-bong, it’s pretty damn entertainin’ with new twists and turns each and every sequel. As you can see in our R-Rated Review of the first 5 parts, it’s a solid fun series full of topless chicks, monsters, interdimensional travel, cameos of other popular Full Moon characters, and this newest one is sure to be no exception with the return of Gingerdead Man, this week’s Howlin Hottie Mindy Robinson, and the introduction of an all new monster Full Moon’s been havin’ too much fun with, the Gingerweed Man! Watch the trailer below and watch it at Full Moon Streaming or their Amazon channel!

And back by popular demand, don’t forget about our “Spot the Dollman Challenge!” Keep your eyeballs peeled for Dollman, Full Moon’s 13 inch cop with an attitude, hidden somewhere in the animated segments of this episode. The first Scream Freak to spot Dollman and email ScreamingSoup@gmail.com a screen shot or video time code of Dollman’s appearance wins a random Full Moon DVD and a signed piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. Pretty cool, right? This episode’s winner is James Lohmann from Markham, IL!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

Some sad news to go out on, unfortunately. For a few months now, we’ve been pleasantly part of the Beta Max TV family who’ve been incredibly supportive of our show, but the channel has run into some serious technical problems and will no longer be streamin’. You can still warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers, however, with reruns scheduled to play on Sluggo’s The Vortexx (after 9PM EST Sunday and Wednesday nights)!

If you need the hook-up with instant Troma and Full Moon movies, we’d suggest watching Troma’s films for free on their Youtube channel, and you can get full access to Full Moon’s catalog of work from their movies to their Videozone clips at Full Moon Streaming and their Amazon channel.

SCREAMING AT RIFFTRAX & MST3K STUFF!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! New week, same bullshit ’round here. We still got our nose to the digital grindstone, pluggin’ away at our most ambitious season yet that’s guaranteed to be the best free entertainment we can offer. We’re up to our eyeballs animatin’ zombie chicken armies, giant rock ’em sock ’em robots, bar brawls, puppet shows . . . but you’ll see all that soon enough.

With all this extra animation and multitude of reviews we committed ourselves to, it’s important to get away from time to time and chillax with a fun flick we ain’t scrutinizin’ for a review. Luckily, we were reminded of one such film scheduled at select theaters tonight, hosted live by RiffTrax, the latest incarnation of the last Mystery Science Theater 3000 gang. If you haven’t been to one of these events before, you’re really missin’ out ’cause they’re hilarious and a truly new experience at the movie theater. The RiffTrax fellas basically riff a movie in front of a live audience at some venue, and that live event is simultaneously broadcast to select theaters across the country for others to enjoy. Some of the best ones we attended were the original House on Haunted Hill and Sharknado, but putrid polecats, not even RiffTrax can save the watchability of bombs like Birdemic and The Room! Tonight shows some promise though, ’cause RiffTrax will be reviewin’ a flick we’ve heard about for a long time but never seen . . . Samurai Cop. If you’re interested in watchin’ somethin’ the same time as us (4/13/17), look for more information at rifftrax.com/samurai-cop.

With the mention of RiffTrax and their ties to MST3K, it only feels natural to briefly mention our excitement for the new MST3K comin’ to Netflix. We were never on the MST3K train with both feet like so many others in the past, but we certainly enjoyed plenty of their movie riffs durin’ the Sci-Fi Channel’s hay day whenever the cheese flick was tolerable enough. Thanks to the arrival of the new MST3K, it’s been easier than ever for folk like us to catch up on everythin’ MST3K with several magazines and TV channels pluggin’ the original series with nostalgic articles and reruns. Our favorite horror rag Horrorhound intereviewed the newest host and published a thorough article on the show’s history in their latest issue. Cable channels like Comet and Shout! Factory’s Roku channel have helped the show find new audiences with reruns and on demand streams of their original episodes. So, needless to say, we’ve been checkin’ a lot of this out lately and happily reminded why MST3K was such a big influence on our own show.

Before we wrap up, we wanna give a big thanks to all you Scream Freaks who participated in Mandy’s Easter Challenge last week. And a big congratulations goes out to the winner, Sarah Day (Durhman, NC), for tellin’ us the scariest thing about the Easter Bunny is he judges your stupid man suit! She’s received a free copy of the throwback slasher flick, Easter Sunday, along with other random goodies!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT MANDY’S EASTER CONTEST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It ain’t quite here yet, but Easter’s hoppin’ up on us, and our favorite ghostly girlfriend Mandy’s got some prizes to give away. We’re askin’ all you Scream Freaks out there to dig into that humorously dark part of your brain and tweet us the scariest thing about the Easter Bunny with the hashtag #BillyBunny. The tweets will be reviewed by your favorite animated horror hosts here at Screaming Soup!, and our favorite tweet will win a copy of Easter Sunday starrin’ Robert “Maniac Cop” Z’Dar along with other random Easter swag.

What is it with holiday characters anyway? Why is part of their celebrated charm breakin’ into your home and doin’ stuff when you’re sleepin’? Santa expects milk and cookies, Tooth Fairy steals your teeth, leprechauns wreck your shit, ghosts and goblins want candy, and the Easter Bunny either leaves you a basket of chocolate or 2nd Christmas goodies dependin’ on how rich your parents are. It’s no wonder these fantasy creatures are so easily imagined as horror villains, ’cause it ain’t that big a stretch for the imagination to think of these invasive boogey men as Medusa monsters you’re not suppose to see creepin’ around you.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen Easter Sunday yet, it’s a cheap holiday horror that definitely belongs with other like-minded classics like Thankskilling. A bunny mask wearin’ psycho’s Easter massacre is stopped by Sheriff Z’Dar, but it’s rabbit season all over again when some yahoos accidentally resurrect the slasher’s soul years later for some Easter fun. Mandy’s plannin’ a full review for this one later on, so all we’ll say for now is if you like grindhouse inspired flicks, chatty slashers, and gory eye gags, then this is right up your alley!

Contest ends Saturday 4/8/17 and the winner will be announced 4/10/17! Be dark, be funny, be creative, and don’t forget to add #BillyBunny so we can find it!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup!

SCREAMING AT FILM FACTS AND SHOUT OUTS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The verdict’s in and it sounds like y’all are enjoyin’ this epic 4th season sure enough, but there’s been some confusion and questions surroundin’ the storyline. Aside from the controversy over whether or not the booger from the closet officially won his fight with Rawhead Rex this past episode, some of you have been hittin’ us up askin’ why certain characters are included in Full Moon’s army of super freaks. More specifically, our horror fanfare’s been challenged with Scream Freaks tellin’ us characters from movies like Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Rawhead Rex have no place on Full Moon’s dance card for this war. Well, sit down before ya’ fall down, Scream Freaks, and learn somethin’!

When we here at Screaming Soup! think Full Moon, we think of its head honcho, Charles Band. Charlie’s been in showbiz for a long time and is partly responsible for an assload of horror and sci-fi films fans have no problem recognizin’. His first notable company that pumped out a lot of popular flicks was Empire Pictures which produced and/or distributed films like Re-Animator, From BeyondRawhead Rex, and too many others to name. After a few years, Charlie relocated his base of operations and transitioned to bein’ Full Moon as part of that move. So, since we identify Full Moon as Charlie and Charlie was Empire, then Full Moon = Empire for us. This is why the Jeffrey Combs characters refer to Charlie as Emperor Band as an acknowledgment of their ties to Empire Pictures. Plus, for entertainment purposes, this parody war is 10x more fun addin’ all those Empire characters with Full Moon’s current stars like Gingerdead Man and Killjoy. And if you need more proof, Scream Freak, just refer to the book Empire of the ‘B’s: The Mad Movie World of Charles Band by Dave Jay. Herbert West, Rawhead Rex, and From Beyond are even on the cover with Charlie!

Now that we got that off our chest, we got a few shout outs this week. First, we wanna congratulate a couple of Scream Freaks. Brandon Riggs from Wellsville, OH won this past episode’s “Spot the Dollman Challenge” and got himself a copy of Intruder with an original piece of Screaming Soup! art. Joe Kerr recently had a birthday, so everyone here’s screamin’ him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY because we always need an excuse for cake. We also had the pleasure of meetin’ the author behind the Gingerdead Man comics this past weekend, Brockton McKinney. Lots of fun to talk to and an important man ’round Full Moon ’cause he wrote the latest Evil Bong flick comin’ 4/20/17. Be sure to check out his company Lost Story Studios to see all the comics and movies he’s up to with his gang. And finally, our good friend the Grim Reaper has been bustin’ his ass on a new show, Mondopiece Theatre, and just released his newest episode which we’ve posted below for your pleasure. Give it a peek and tell him what you think!

SCREAMING AT MONSTER IN THE CLOSET / BLOOD DOLLS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s time, it’s time! All the way from the war torn Crosslands comes the continuin’ tale of a supernatural bar caught in the middle of an interdimensional feud only one lone gunslinger can keep from bein’ torn apart!

Brace yourself for the biggest monster brawl yet as a booger monster from the closet goes claw to claw with one of horror’s most bad ass beasts ever captured on celluloid, the pissed off psycho pagan, Rawhead Rex. Burstin’ with horror Easter eggs, golden showers, amputations, mutants, reviews, and Charles Band covered in boobs, you’re gonna need a poncho for the bloodbath this episode offers! Hurry and watch below!

And back by popular demand, we bring you our “Spot the Dollman Challenge!” Keep your eyeballs peeled for Dollman, Full Moon’s 13 inch cop with an attitude, hidden somewhere in the animated segments of this episode. The first Scream Freak to spot Dollman and email ScreamingSoup@gmail.com a screen shot or video time code of Dollman’s appearance wins a random Full Moon DVD and a signed piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. Pretty cool, right? Our winner this episode is Brandon Riggs from Wellsville, OH. Congrats, Brandon!

SCREAMING AT BETA MAX TV!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! With all the drama happenin’ lately, we wanted to focus on somethin’ more positive and give a shout out to one entity that’s been nothing but good to us this season. After purchasin’ our first Roku device, we feverishly explored this new gateway to random entertainment, huntin’ for everythin’ bizarre and obscure. Much to our surprise, we found more than a handful of Roku channels that allowed us to finally watch longtime bucket list titles like the raunchy Ilsa movies, The Slime People, and Beware! The Blob. Most channels are free with periodic commercials, but we stumbled across one particular channel that quickly hooked us.

Beta Max TV is similar to other channels with a catalog of free on demand B movies and a streamin’ service but also offers horror hosts shows to viewers. That’s right. Harkin’ back to the UHF days when horror hosts were more commonly seen on the boob tube as opposed to YouTube, horror fans can capture some of that TV magic on their idiot box while gettin’ a glimpse at horror hosts of the 21st century. The more consistently updated  shows on Beta Max TV are The Midnight Movie with Dave and Ritch, Uncle Pete’s Dark Vault of Public Domain, and Lord Blood-Rah’s Nerve Wrackin’ Theatre. All of which follow the more traditional hostin’ formula with them book endin’ select movies with campy intros and outros.

Then there’s some new blood breakin’ into the scene like My Gal, the Zombie and the Mummy and the Monkey Show. My Gal, the Zombie kinda came out of nowhere for us but seems to be makin’ some waves out west with comic books, hot sauce, and 4 stars from horror host legend Joe Bob Briggs! Can’t help but be jealous of that last one! She hosts movies a little like Mystery Science Theater 3000 with regular commentary over the flick and typically includes music videos from independent bands. Mummy and the Monkey are a couple to keep your peepers on. These 2 are obvious fans of horror hosts and doin’ all they can to be part of its rich history in all the right ways. They’re hittin’ the conventions, workin’ the costumes, producin’ videos of them zippin’ around town and interviewin’ other hosts past and present . . . worth a watch. I only wish Zombie and M&M were postin’ their vids to Beta Max TV on a more regular basis. We could always go to their sites or YouTube channels to find more, but that kind of defeats the fun of seein’ them on this channel.

Curious to see how we could get in on the fun, we reached out to Beta’s head honchos through its website, and faster than you could say jumpin’ jack-o-lanterns, Screaming Soup! was happily accepted into the fold and is now rerunning past episodes every Saturday night at 9pm before the Cinema Snob of all people! We haven’t officially reached out to Snob yet, but have been regularly taggin’ him in our social media announcements before an episode airs. Our shows bein’ paired makes a lot of sense given we share the newer approach to hostin’ movies as reviewers, cuttin’ out all the bullshit in a movie to tell you fans what’s good or not and let you decide if it’s worth your time.

To wrap up, Beta Max TV has been very good to us and exhibits nothin’ less than professional courtesy and management for runnin’ our show in a talented line-up of programs we’re pleased to have joined. If you wanna check out Beta Max TV and all their featured horror host, click this link HERE. You won’t regret it!

SCREAMING AT CENSORSHIP WITH SCREAM FREAKS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! What a nutty week! If you’ve been followin’ the posts lately, then you’re aware we had to apply the brakes to our current season featurin’ us stuck in a parody war between Full Moon and Troma. Why? ’cause a certain film company that’s always claimed to champion independent entertainment told us they wouldn’t participate and to remove anythin’ to do with them regardless of this bein’ a labor of love made to celebrate the crazy films they’ve given us over the decades.

We’re still tryin’ to break our mugs from their stupefied expressions, wonderin’ how in the world Troma can celebrate works like Attack of the Tromaggot but not this epic animated crossover served on a silver platter for them to exploit however they wish. It only adds to the frustration when we come across recent articles from the Huffington Post with the headline “‘Troma Now’ Supports Uncut & Uncensored Independent Art,” sharin’ a story about Troma welcomin’ an Amazon rejected film into their catalog of flicks, because they won’t stand for independent artists bein’ censored. Lloyd Kaufman’s final quote made us chuck the damn computer across the room:

“So I address this to each and every filmmaker that is being choked by the fascist vertically integrated cartel and censorship mongers — Troma Entertainment’s doors are open to you. Come home to Troma Now. We will showcase your art and deliver it to the world as intended, completely uncut and completely uncensored. Censorship has run amok in this world and we here in Tromaville are fighting back. Give us your poor, your gore, your crude, and your lewd! I say to the independent art and commerce community, Come home! COME HOME TO TROMA NOW! We will be a community for you!”

It’s hilarious how life is mimicking art right now. In the show, our characters’ actions bring these 2 indie companies together, and then they have to protect the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits from the crossfire as a well meanin’ but troublesome Troma camp forces Full Moon’s camp to do things against their wishes. In real life, we brought these 2 indie companies together for a kick-ass season, and end up walkin’ on eggshells to protect the show ’cause of Troma’s attitude against the crossover which forces Full Moon to not be as involved as they want to be, forced to remove the episodes from their streamin’ services.

Anyway, I think it goes without sayin’ nothin’s changed as far as removin’ the censorship. We’ve had wonderful support from you Scream Freaks, and several of you have already contacted Troma askin’ them to let this season happen. Some of you have even made videos to express how upset this unfortunate circumstance has made you, and we’ve posted those below.

Just so you don’t think every week’s goin’ to be a rant against Troma, this is all we got to say until somethin’ significant happens worth mentionin’. We still like Troma and want their blessin’, can’t say enough how awesome Charles Band and Full Moon have been durin’ this mess, and know everythin’s gonna work out for the best in the end!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT CENSORSHIP!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! While you’ve been enjoyin’ animated bloodshed between your 2 favorite indie film companies, there’s been struggles of other sorts behind the scenes. When we first imagined Troma vs Full Moon, we thought it would be amazin’ to get the actual companies involved. No deals, obligations or contracts – just good ol’ fashion fun that gives somethin’ back to the filmmakers who entertained us for so many years.

The pitch was simple enough. Our show humorously parodies their characters in a ridiculous feud, and we review Full Moon and Troma movies we think horror/sci-fi fans need to know about. All covered under Fair Use which legally allows such works to exist like South Park and Robot Chicken. Because Troma vs Full Moon is meant to be a gift for everyone in the horror community to enjoy, we didn’t want any profit off these videos and even went as far as tellin’ Full Moon and Troma they could have the episodes to monetize on their own YouTube channels and streamin’ services. We even shared the full rundown for the season and made adjustments upon request to best promote each company respectively and any films they have comin’ up.

Needless to say, Full Moon loved the idea and recognized it for the win win situation it provided with opportunities for cross promotions, a chance to hype up their internet presence, and see its characters animated. Troma, on the other hand, wasn’t as enthusiastic and ultimately chose to not participate in the end. After several attempts to plead our case for this being a non-profit parody review produced by long time fans who have nothin’ but respect for their material and would only promote their films, we are unfortunately forced to cut Troma out of this fantasy fight.

What does this mean for this season? We’re still movin’ forward with Full Moon’s participation, but will be censorin’ everythin’ to do with Troma, minus the reviews of their movies. At this point, it’s our honest belief the power to turn this whole thing around resides with you Scream Freaks. We can’t explain or understand why Troma of all companies would want to put the brakes on something as independent as this endeavor of love, but maybe your voice can be enough to convince them otherwise.

Email ’em, tweet ’em, Facebook messege ’em, reach Troma however you can and let them know how badly you want to see this season in its full animated glory. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll finally understand there’s no harm in any of this and give us the green light to run free with it.

We respect Troma’s wishes in the meantime, continue to enjoy their films, and don’t harbor any ugly feelin’s over this matter. In all this confusion, however, we can’t help but come back to things Lloyd Kaufman’s written in the past:

“Support independent films, comics and websites! Don’t take ‘NO’ for an answer!”
The New Adventures of the Toxic Avenger #1 introduction.

“-because of the success, and especially the fame of the Toxic Avenger, it is impossible for even me to see the character clearly. Toxie doesn’t belong to me – he’s come to mean too much to other people.”
All I Need to Know About Filmmaking I Learned From the Toxic Avenger (pg. 154)

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

Warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers with reruns currently scheduled to play on Beta Max TV ( Sat. 3/4/17 @ 9pm EST) and Sluggo’s The Vortexx (Wed. 3/1/17 @ sometime after 9PM EST)!

If you need the hook-up with instant Troma and Full Moon movies, we’d suggest watching Troma’s films for free on their Youtube channel, and you can get full access to Full Moon’s catalog of work from their movies to their Videozone clips at Full Moon Streaming and their Amazon channel.

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT TEENAGE CATGIRLS IN HEAT VS SORORITY BABES IN SLIME BOWL-O-RAMA!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Wooo doggy! We’re only 2 episodes into this war of the independent Bs, and things are heatin’ up! We head back to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits for a breather and find some of the war’s secretly spilled over into the basement where our favorite Scream Queen, Linnea Quigley, is throwin’ down with some sassy cat girls from Troma. Good times, plenty o’ drinks, and one hell of an endin’!

This episode also gives you a peek at Troma’s base which is a chunk of Tromaville magically transported to the Crosslands with the rest of Troma’s mutants and psycho gangs. And like Full Moon’s Charles Band sharin’ words of wisdom with his creations last episode, this opens with Lloyd Kaufman bein’ summoned by his characters . . . sorta. The original intention was for Lloyd to make a live cameo like Charlie did, but he unfortunately couldn’t participate at this time, leavin’ us to resort to the next best thing with a blatant lunch sack puppet parody. Maybe he’ll join the fun further into the season, but that’s what’s happenin’ with all that.

We’re also happy to announce an idea we’ve been playin’ around with, the “Spot the Dollman Challenge!” For the rest of the season, we’re gonna play an I Spy game with Full Moon’s 13 inch cop bein’ hidden among the animation from now ’til episode #40. The first Scream Freak to spot the Dollman and email ScreamingSoup@gmail.com a screen shot or video time code of Dollman’s appearance wins a random Full Moon DVD and a signed piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. Pretty cool, huh? Our first winner this season is Jared Johnson from Paradise, CA. Congrats, Jared!
