SCREAMING AT SPOT THAT HORROR HOST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We don’t have a lot of time, so we gotta make this quick.

First, hope you enjoyed the newest episode of Screaming Soup! as much as we did and checked out Homicidal Homemaker and the Mummy and the Monkey’s YouTube channels. Speakin’ of fellow horror hosts, you may have noticed several of your favorite ones hidden away in the background of this latest episode. We mentioned last week we might make a game out of it or somethin’, and that’s just what we did. Earlier this week, we posted a little challenge across our social media darin’ fans to hunt for these horrific personalities and tell us where they found them to unlock their animated avatars. Thanks to some Super Scream Freaks, they were all unlocked within three days, and are now available for download HERE. Save ’em, post ’em, make collage art out of ’em for your sick pleasure, and even though they’ve all been found, take a look at the chart below and see who you can spot in the episode.

In other news, we’re movin’ forward with our plans for submittin’ an episode of Screaming Soup! to the El Rey Network in the hopes they’ll play it durin’ one of their People’s Network presentations which gives filmmakers the chance to get their work seen by TV audiences ’round the world. To increase our chances of bein’ selected, we went ahead and cut out the movie review portion, leavin’ only an animated adventure that’s a bit hodge podged from past episodes to expose TV audiences to as much of our wild weird west as we can. We still talk about bein’ horror hosts, but just act as though the adventure’s one big build up with us fightin’ monstrous forces just to deliver the review. Should have this submitted over the weekend and will keep y’all posted on its progress for bringin’ us before the home viewin’ masses. Fangs crossed!

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! Please use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site and follow our tweets, subscribe to our video channels, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail comin’.

For all you fearmakers out there workin’ on your next scary feature, remember to shoot it our way as an entry in our Scream Freak Film Contest! Three winners will be reviewed in our 50th episode and promoted to all the Scream Freaks lookin’ for the next big thing Hollywood’s too scared to capitalize on. Deadline’s 8/20/18, so hurry!

Warm up some Screaming Soup! leftovers with reruns currently playin’ on Beta Max TV and Sluggo’s The Vortexx!

See ya later, Scream Freaks!

SCREAMING AT BLOOD DINER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Ask and ye shall receive, partners! After a lot of hard but fun work, the episode you’ve been waitin’ for is here and firin’ on all pistons! Now, we’ll be honest, we feel our last episode reviewin’ Tusk could have been a little better. It got a little rushed toward the end to get it published within a month of the previous review and think it could have been funnier. That said, once we missed our monthly deadline for this episode, we didn’t sweat it as much and made the extra effort to make sure this review took full advantage of the humor and kicked the animation up a notch with the camerawork.

We’re also excited about this episode, ’cause if you scan the backgrounds you’ll see we plugged a bunch of our amigos in the horror community in addition to Homicidal Homemaker, Janet Decay, and Grimm Gorri’s special cameos. Yup, like a game of Where’s Waldo, you’ll find the Horror Addicts, our neighbors at Beta Max TV, Sluggo from The Vortexx, Bloodbath & Beyond, and more packed into the walls of the Howl-Inn! We’re thinkin’ we’ll maybe make this into a game so every horrorific entertainer you fans identify unlocks their Screaming Soup! cartoon versions to be enjoyed for whatever sick reasons you want them for.

Aside from all that, you’ll also see our gang’s made it back to the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits in one piece, but a lot of things have changed thanks to the return of that voodoo hexin’ rooster, Papa Kaka. What he’s up to and how it inspires our review of Jackie Kong’s Blood Diner ’bout two yahoos cookin’ up a sacrificial meal for usherin’ a monstrous goddess back to their world, you’ll just have to watch and find out! On a side note, if you’re a fan of Blood Diner, then you gotta hunt you down a copy of the director’s other monster romp no one ever talks about, The Being, which is ’bout a small town debatin’ its pollution problem while a one-eye burrowin’ puddle mutant tears through people like a bad case of the runs that bite!

And real quick for you Super Scream Freaks, we finally got the bios written up for this season’s newest characters and added them all to our growin’ roster of beasts and ghouls. Everythin’ you wanna know ’bout the apocalyptic bikers or the spooks from the last episode is just a click away on our BIOS page.

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 HORROR REBOOTS AND REMAKES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s Friday and some new summer movies have just been released to our displeasure in the theaters! One of which is the new Fantastic Four reboot, which has been taking a real beating from the reviews we’ve read from comic fans. The one consistent argument seems to be how the filmmakers missed the mark with what fans expected from these flagship Marvel characters, making them yearn for the 2000’s version that deserved more appreciation. Instead, Hollywood has dished out a hollow superhero story spackled with CGI shit to cover up its shortcomings. This super misfire got us thinking about how pissed we actually are at movies that get constantly rebooted, telling us the same stories over and over again, when we honestly think it would benefit everyone to just keep moving forward with new characters and adventures each cinematic reincarnation.

For instance, we just heard rumors there will be a reboot of the Nightmare on Elm St. series . . . Again! What the fuck? We just had a reboot not that long ago, and sure, maybe not everyone liked it, but it was decent in our opinion. Horror fans don’t want to see the same damn origin tale rehashed like with the Spider-Man movies. How many times can we pay to see the same story? Just move forward and tell a new nightmare with Freddy! He’s immortal after all, and Springwood isn’t stuck in any particular time period for him to terrorize, so simply tell a modern story with our favorite boogey man! That’s what they kind of did when they rebooted Friday the 13th which was a mixed failure. I thought we were finally going to see the story between Jason’s drowning and his resurrection as a full grown mongoloid, but no! We just get a plot that was really a sad sequel minus Jason rediscovering the hockey mask. That whole missing part of his origin could have been the hallmark of the movie, but instead we have a forgettable plot that leaves this movie blending in to the other more memorable sequels. And yes, despite arguments every Friday movie is the same, each did have that one memorable moment/situation unlike the reboot:

Friday The 13th: Jason’s mother seeks revenge.

Friday the 13th Part 2: Jason avenges his mother’s death.

Friday the 13th Part 3: Jason finds the hockey mask.

Friday the 13th Part 4: Jason’s death.

Friday the 13th Part 5: Tommy’s epilogue.

Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason returns as the living dead.

Friday the 13th Part 7: Jason fights a telekinetic.

Friday the 13th Part 8: Jason stalks the streets of Manhattan.

Friday the 13th Part 9: Jason is killed and shown he can jump bodies.

Jason X: Jason kills in space.

Freddy VS Jason: Two of horror’s favorite icons go head to head in combat.

Friday the 13th (reboot): He . . . uh . . . protects his dope?

We honestly think a couple of reboots that got it right were the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween. Before you get too up in arms, these films were guilty of some poor decisions that left us scratching our heads (Like the first TCM reboot having no cannibalism and R. Lee Ermey stealing the show with his performance), but they gave fans new material with insight into these super villains of horror. While some thought it was too much backstory, we actually liked the first half of the new Halloween with the exploration into Myer’s time in the mental hospital which is the kind of thing we thought they were going to do with the Friday reboot.

And how the hell could New Line miss such a golden opportunity to release a 13th Friday the 13th movie on Friday the 13th in 2013?! That was like the stars aligning for some epic prophecy, but they completely dropped the ball. Just like they did with failing to celebrate Freddy’s 30th anniversary in 2014. We didn’t see anyone doing any special for that!

Anyway, we’re starting to ramble. Bottom line, STOP forcing the same shit on fans over and over again and give us something new and different with our favorite characters while staying familiar and fun.
