SCREAMING AT THE CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH SERIES!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! School’s out for summer, and we’re blowin’ it to pieces with hard hittin’ radioactive reviews of Troma’s Class of Nuke ‘Em High series. Yessir, we commit to givin’ ya hard lessons in readin’, writin’, and radiation, and show you why this is the only other Troma series aside from Toxic Avenger that’s worth makin’ sequels out of. Classes include the original cult hit that captures one of cinema’s most memorable gangs, Brick Bronsky’s two movie demo reel about subhumanoids, and the soft gender swappin’ reboot/sequel that came out a few short years ago. We would liked to have seen the newest Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High flick and help generate some buzz with a review for it, but it’s not available for purchase yet. We could have asked for an early-bird promotional copy, but certain you-know-who’s ain’t exactly been cooperative this season.

As far as the story goes, this final half of a 2-part special picks right back up with us defendin’ the Howl-Inn Grub & Spirits from a hell raisin’ gang who’s busy sickin’ a big ass mutant against a Robot Jox mech driven by Full Moon’s Killjoy. Lots of deaths, several horror Easter eggs, plenty of action, bookoos of monsters, we see the return of Brainbasher from Season 3 . . . we just continue raisin’ the stakes for the war this episode and keep blowin’ the animation out to accommodate it all.

As is the tradition this season, we did have another “Spot the Dollman Contest” this episode, and the lucky winner to find the 13″ cop with an attitude is Sean Garver from Batesville, Arkansas. Congrats Scream Freak, and hope you enjoy your random Full Moon DVD and original piece of Screaming Soup! artwork. To see past winners and prizes for the “Spot the Dollman Contest” click HERE.

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 FROGS AND SQUIRM!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Time to peel your eyelids back and take in the unholy glory that is Screaming Soup! as we hurl up the next exciting episode continuing the Buzzkill’s Revenge saga. Yessir, this episode’s packed with mecha-devil bull rides, lover’s spat, vision quests, drunken rage, Graboids, frogs, and worms! All for your squeamish pleasure . . .

This time ’round, we’re reviewing a double feature of 2 nature gone bad flicks from the ’70s, Frogs (starring Sam “Dodge Ram” Elliot) and Squirm. We can’t remember what exactly motivated us to review these 2 lackluster films to begin with, but each certainly offers up its own form of B-grade entertainment for us to riff on. Or should we say for Billy and Tequila Worm to riff on! That’s right, these 2 Screaming Soup! alum get their 15 seconds of fame as guest hosts filling in, and we think they did a pretty awesome job at it! Just watch the new episode below and see fer yourself!

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

SCREAMING AT THINGS SOON TO COME!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Glad you came back, because we’ve been beaming with good news to tell ya about this week! Horror hosting is always fun, but it’s even better when done with the right group of people which is why we always have regular cast members coming and going for every adventure. But outside our show are countless other crazy personalities who’ve also taken it upon themselves to share their opinions with the public on all things scary, and we’ve been lucky enough to network with some of them.

We’re not sayin’ we’re exchanging agent’s numbers and sippin’ seltzer water over overpriced salads while discussing business opportunities, but we have been in the talks with several hosts about crossovers & cameos and such. Of course, this can be difficult at times to arrange given everything we do is animated and that takes a lot of time, but we believe in the entertainment value of a lot of these projects and really want to give you Scream Freaks something special. So, we’re really looking forward to some shows and characters we’re gonna crisscross with through the rest of this season, and excited several of them will be appearing in episode 26 premiering in June.

And speaking of future episodes, be here next week, 4/20/16, because an all NEW episode of Screaming Soup! is coming out and we pick right back up with the epic that is Buzzkill’s Revenge while unexpected guests help review a double billing of Frogs and Squirm!

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 after watching the latest Season 3 episodes, 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!

SCREAMING AT 13 GHOSTS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! So, it’s about time we posted another video and decided to do another Re-Make Re-Mix this turn. You’ve seen us edit together music videos showing the different interpretations of King Kong, The Blob, and The Thing, but now we present to you  . . . 13 Ghosts!

Yessir, we still remember when the remake came out in 2001 with Monk and Shaggy running around that glass house from Solomon Grundy and the naked ghost chick with the big hoo-haws, making it one of our favorite horror films of all time. Always wondered all these years how similar it was to the original and finally had our secret wish answered when we came across a copy of William Castle’s version from 1960 in a pawn shop.

For 1960, the original 13 Ghosts is pretty impressive . . . as far as its concept that is! A family inherits a house haunted by 13 ghosts who were all captured and brought their by the husband’s deceased uncle. To help maneuver around the ghosts, the family is left with a pair of special glasses the uncle built for seeing them. That’s about where the similarities end. The real threat in the original wasn’t the ghosts but the estate lawyer after the uncle’s fortune hidden somewhere in the house. He finds it by the end, but has to kill the family’s son to keep his discovery a secret. The uncle’s protective spirit intervenes, however, killing the lawyer in a bed built for smothering whoever sleeps in it. Yeah, definitely giving points to the remake for cutting its lawyer in half as you’ll see in the video below.

But while the original doesn’t have energetic editing, dynamic performances, bloodshed, over the top set designs, awesome ghosts, color, or boobs, it does have a ghost lion which is pretty damn cool, the cool gimmicky history of seeing the ghosts on the movie screen through special viewers handed out at the theater when it originally ran, and mad respect for even conceiving such a wild idea for a story in 1960. Worth a look see if you like the remake, but I’d only recommend buying the remake for your horror movie collection.

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

SCREAMING AT 2016 CONVENTIONS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Sorry we skipped on last week’s update, but we’ve been screaming the good news about the web’s #1 animated horror host site at some local comic book/horror conventions lately. No, not with our own booth and merch for sell unfortunately. We’re still diligently hoofing it like creative nomads, shaking hands and throwing Screaming Soup! ads wherever people will see them (the best place is in the restroom stalls!).

Not that we’re bitch’n about burnin’ the treads off our boots making endless laps around convention centers and hotels, but it would sure be nicer to have a booth, and we’ve already got the blueprints all prepared! Imagine a convention table covered with a picnic tablecloth with Screaming Soup! poster prints , buttons, magnets, and t-shirts spread out across it. You can get your picture taken with a life-size Deadwest prop at the doors of the Howl-Inn while we play a collection of clips from the show on twin flat screen TVs flanking each side while the theme song plays from hidden speakers. And for those looking for our booth, they just have to look to the ceiling to find the Screaming Soup! air blimp pinpointing our location below. It would be glorious . . .

. . . and expensive which is the only hold-up. But like everything else we work for, it’ll happen sooner or later. Just gotta save up, believe in ourselves, and work for it like everything else we’ve done to make this show happen.

Other than that, be back next week as we post an all new Re-Make Re-Mix for 13 Ghosts, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 after watching the latest Season 3 episodes, 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!

SCREAMING AT OVERSEXED RUGSUCKERS FROM MARS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Today is the dawn of an all new season, and we’re kicking it off with one of the most disappointing finds we’ve ever had the misfortune of stumbling across, Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars! Putrid polecats, this is one stinker that’s really overlooked when horror fans debate the worst of the worst out there, and we’re happy to bring it to everyone’s attention as something that’s so bad it’s awful! We’re still at a loss why a national hero like Drive-In critic Joe Bob Briggs gave it such high praise with 3/4 stars, but maybe he can tell us one day.

You’ll also notice we got ourselves a story arc happening now with your favorite animated horror host finding himself without his favorite table, and it’s gonna take all season for him to fight for it back from Buzzkill and his monster misfits you may recognize from Robot Monster, It! Conquered the World, and From Hell it Came. As the season progresses, you’ll be shown new corners of the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits, and even get to see what’s out in the interdimensional Crosslands as the stakes get higher and Deadwest‘s troubles get worse. It’s going to be a blast of a year, and it all starts with Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars below!

SCREAMING AT DOGGONE HORROR!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Oh, the excitement is just building for the premier of our 3rd season 1/20/15, and we can’t stand it! But until then, just pull a bag over your head to ease the anxiety and enjoy a warm-up vid we call, Doggone Horror.

For years, we watched horror movies with no problem accepting the rule that anyone could die at anytime. Old people, babies, the handicap, and especially animals. Animals always seem to be horror’s warm-up act (normally beating the black guy as first to get axed), but it never phased us until our girlfriends started making a fuss about it. Now, we all know it’s a movie and nothing’s real, but the ladies still wanna flip tables whenever a critter is even hinted at being harmed on screen. This situation has only 3 courses of action. Empathize with their sensitive nature and change out the movie you’ve been dying to see, kick the gal out of the room so you can be scared in peace, or dump’em till they learn their lesson and come weeping back to you. Well, asking them to leave is a fair compromise of the 2 extremes, so we tend to go that route. But it’s times like these that inspired this Screaming Soup! Presents vid which serves 2 purposes. To educate horror fans of some notable hounds of the genre, and to warn others of some flicks they may not wanna show their in-the-closet PETA recruit who can watch a toddler get skewered by cannibals but never a dog getting tossed in shark infested waters.

So, without anymore of an introduction, watch our newest vid below and have fun learning about some movies you maybe didn’t know existed while avoiding a date night gone wrong the next time you pick the movie. And for those interested, we’ve also been made aware of a great site you can check for an animal death count in a movie called doesthedogdie.com. Checked it out ourselves, and its pretty helpful and allows you to add updates to any movies you saw they haven’t accounted for yet.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, watch out for a new Screaming Soup! Presents video 1/10/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT THE FIRST WEEK OF 2016!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Man oh man, it’s not easy being the web’s #1 animated horror host site, and this week is no exception. We’re working hard on numerous projects around the clock, losing who knows how many hours of sleep, ensuring you some of the best material in horror entertainment you’ll ever see. We’re putting the final touches on Season 3, about to start animating Season 4 for next year’s release, putting pen to paper for planning Season 5, and editing together all new tribute videos and reviews of horror comics and cartoons. Sounds like a lot, right? That’s because it is!

But we’re not bitching. Quite the opposite. We’re actually having a blast, because we love mixing our 2 favorite things; horror movies and making art. Makes it all worth getting out of bed, you know? The only thing better than that is when we get to share our creations with you Scream Freaks, and find out a lot of you have the same thoughts and feelings about things in horror that we do. It’s always a treat whenever we hear from you on Twitter and Facebook, so keep hitting us up whenever you have a question about the show or just anything you want to get off your chest about horror in general.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, watch out for a new Screaming Soup! Presents video 1/10/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT CHRISTMAS 2015!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and Merry Christmas! Yessir, Christmas is here and none too soon. We wish we could say this year flew on by, but it really didn’t! We were too busy writing, animating, drawing, editing, reviewing, and watching scary movies – all for your animated horror host entertainment! But luckily, we’re working in a mixed genre we love and have nothing but fun doing it!

My gift to you loyal and rambunctious Scream Freaks is below. Your first sneak peek at Screaming Soup! Season 3, and its as good as it looks if not better. This season we’re introducing a handful of new characters, bringing in more parodies of movie monsters, expanding the Crosslands universe with 3 new locations, and reviewing some movies we think you’ll enjoy. We can’t wait to share it with all of you beginning 1/20/16! But in the meantime, enjoy the promo.

We wish all of you a safe and quiet Christmas, and cross our fingers none of you will open fire when you don’t get the gifts you wanted. Remember to fan the flames to keep Krampus away, and that Elf on a Shelf is just a cover story for a race of mischievous peeping toms. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to grab a seat around the TV for our annual Christmas viewing of Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Oh, yeah, almost forgot! Be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

SCREAMING AT GHOULIGANS CHRISTMAS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Like most everyone else about now, we’ve been occupied with scratching the itch to see the Star wars sequel we’ve all been waiting for, and luckily, it didn’t disappoint! But when our attention’s not in a galaxy far far away, we’ve been solely focused on making sure this upcoming season of Screaming Soup! is gonna outshine the rest.

We’ll never forget when a good friend of ours was reviewing an episode for us halfway through the production of Season 2, and toward the end he started fastfowarding. “Why did you do that?” we asked. “Because I know what’s going to happen.” That was just the reality check we needed to realize the episodes were getting a little too patterned and predictable, and we needed to change up the show to keep the interests of you Scream Freaks. This evolution began with the Slime City review in episode 17, and slowly built up little by little for setting up the new format that’ll be seen in Season 3. What that means is you’ll be seeing more out of Deadwest and the gang with fully developed story arcs, high stakes action, and some new wild locations that expands the Crosslands beyond the Howl-Inn Grub and Spirits.

Luckily, we were smart enough to start a yearly schedule for producing a full season of Screaming Soup!, meaning we have 12 months to animate a season before its premier. So, while you’re watching Season 2, we’re working on Season 3. We typically like to wrap up production by Halloween so we can enjoy the holidays and just prep for the following season, but we have fallen behind some this year for a couple of reasons. One reason we’re just now working on the season finale for season 3 is because of those Bruce Campbell videos we made for Halloween, and then the Ghouligans enlisted our services for a Christmas music video. Yup, this gang of top notch horror entertainers were impressed enough with their cameo in the Season 2 finale, that they wanted more! It was interesting working on another show’s animation, but it was a lot of fun, and those guys are just a great lot to work with. So, if you haven’t seen that video yet, watch below, and because it’s G-rated, you can share it with your friends and family!

Enough rambling already! Be sure to catch up on Screaming Soup! Seasons 1-2 before the premier of Season 3 1/20/16, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!
