Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Right out of Halloween and more holidays are rearin’ to smack us square in the face ’round the corner! Elections, Veterans, Thanksgiving, and then it’ll too late when you finally remember ol’ Krampus is coming to town. Works in our favor, though, because it gives us some extra time to tackle more of this upcoming season that’s the most ambitious thing the show’s ever taken on. If you saw the ending to season 3, then you know what we’re talking about . . . Troma vs Full Moon!
Yessir, we’re long time fans of both companies and have seen horror lovers try to arrange entertaining battles between the 2 independent goliaths for years, but never with a lot of success. With our imagination being our only limitation, we couldn’t think of any reason why we shouldn’t jump all over this idea and give ourselves and fans something we’ve dreamed of seeing for a long time. We’re talking everything from the Toxic Crusaders to Toulon’s puppets just beating the dog shit out of each other and our favorite gang of animated horror hosts stuck in the middle as refs trying to protect the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits in the crossfire. It’s definitely a lot of work animating 2 armies going to war, and may even require us to put the secondary vids like Graphic Violence and Reanimated Reviews on the backburner, but it’ll be worth it.
Even more exciting, we’re currently talking with Full Moon and Troma to get them officially involved in the war, and things look promising. More to be announced as things become more concrete with that arrangement!
Another reminder, we’ll be making our first convention appearance as panelist at Big Fandom Greenville. We’ll be hosting panel discussions with some horror filmmakers and independent comic creators in the Carolinas and then talk for an hour about Screaming Soup! Nov.19 at 8pm. We wish it could be our first official booth appearance, but that dream is still in the works until we raise the finances needed to make it everything we envision.
Other than that, be sure to watch our epic Season 3 finale with our review of the Basket Case trilogy while having our final showdown with Buzzkill, catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films we’re watching in our R-Rated Reviews blog, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!
