Howdy there, and soup’s on, Scream Freaks! We were sweatin’ it there for a second, but we strapped oxygen masks to our faces while injectin’ caffeine straight into our veins with TV on the Radio blastin’ in our ears and cranked out another monthly adventure of your favorite animated horror host who’s still havin’ a hootenanny of a frightful time. This episode explores new corners of the Crosslands, introduces new yahoos causin’ trouble, and picks back up with those semi-mysterious bikers still after Billy.

The movie we’re reviewin’ is the first installment in Kevin Smith’s True North trilogy, and it’s one you won’t be forgettin’ anytime soon. Originally a bizarre joke on Kevin’s smodcast that ran away with itself, this Human Centipede lite torture flick masterfully brings back fears audiences felt watchin’ Misery but takes it a sick step further with senior slasher madmen turnin’ folks into their own emotional support animal. We know we might get some sass from y’all ’bout missin’ the mark with this episode bein’ a perfect setup for showcasin’ a supernatural spook thriller, but we want to talk about this instead, so . . . that’s that. We gotta be unpredictable to keep ya on your toes sometimes, you know?!

We also want to give a shout out to Kevin Smith. While cuttin’ this puppy together, the news broke less than a week ago he suffered a heart attack and nearly died. It was freaky when we found out, ’cause we had just watched the new Comic Book Men episode with Kevin gettin’ emotional watchin’ people act out a chapter of his life in the new bio-pic, Shooting Clerks. Ain’t that pretty surreal he almost expires at the same time folks are watchin’ him experience his past with bittersweet nostalgia? Kevin, if you’re readin’ this, Screaming Soup! is happy to still have such an amazin’ person among us and wish you and your family a speedy recovery. We hope our animated review of your flick brings you some laughs to help heal.
