SCREAMING AT THANKSGIVING 2017!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks, and happy gobble gobble day! While there’s still a little over a month left in 2017, we can’t help but look back at everything that’s happened since January and reflect on our show’s triumphs and hiccups that have left us both humbled and howlin’ with joy. Fair warnin’ this post may get kind of corny, so brace yourself for sappy Hallmark moments ahead . . .

Every season, we strive to develop Screaming Soup! into somethin’ more than it is and grow its fan base with a list of goals. Some of these goals are slam-dunks, others continue to be as elusive as ever. Then there’s some that tease us with fleetin’ victories like Troma agreein’ to participate in our crossover with Full Moon Empire, just to back out at the last minute. Some of us felt even more defeated when we were further slapped with the censor notice from Troma followed by news our newly acquired spot on Beta Max TV disappeared overnight after they shut down due to technical difficulties. A regular buzzkill has been us tryin’ to get mentioned in a horror rag to no avail, our most consistent efforts bein’ regular emails to HorrorHound Magazine which requested suggestions for horror hosts they can spotlight.

But despite any disappointments we encounter, we never let these shortcomin’s eclipse our vision for our show’s future and diligently push ahead with focus on all the positives. We were happily picked up by Sluggo’s The Vortexx for their streamin’ broadcasts, and Beta Max TV eventually bounced back, eager to get us back in the line-up with hit web shows like the Cinema Snob and The Mummy and the Monkey Show. MonsterVision legend Joe Bob Brigg’s blessed us with his highest ratin’ of four stars which is a huge deal for us, and good ol’ fashion networkin’ at conventions has given us the means to try and pitch Screaming Soup! to television networks. We interacted with some of the best social horror talents like Mondopiece Theater, Homicidal Homemaker, and the Horror Addicts and even been talkin’ with the fine folks behind Ms. Monster and Her Monster Melons. We’re still emailin’ HorrorHound and other horror rags information about our show ’til one of them wants to publish an article about us. And while we didn’t get the trifecta crossover we planned our whole season around, we still produced the episodes we originally wanted to see and formed an invaluable relationship with Charlie and his staff at Full Moon Empire. They are the best people to collaborate with, and we’re thankful for all their support and encouragement in Screaming Soup!

But most of all, we’re thankful for you Scream Freaks! This entire production would mean nothin’ if y’all weren’t always comin’ back for another helpin’ of comedic animated reviews. It’s your positive comments, sincere love, and validation for our show that keeps Screaming Soup! up and runnin’. You’ve shared horror movies, personal stories, and feedback with us over the years, and we do our best to keep promptly in touch, because we value you as fans we’re makin’ all this for. Our YouTube subs may not be as high as most other horror flick reviewers, but what few we have are incredibly loyal.

Anyways, we hosted a couple of panels at the Big Fandom Greenville convention this past weekend and managed to record the audio from both. So, for those who couldn’t make it out for one reason or another, we edited these events to the slideshows used for presentin’ the different horror flicks we discussed and stuck them at the bottom of this blog. Perfect podcast kind-of vids for those on a long car ride to see family for Thanksgivin’, or anyone just needin’ help tunin’ out baby young’ns hollerin’ for more gravy trains at the dinner table.

In the meantime, 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 BIG FANDOM GREENVILLE 2017!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! We figured things would slow down after our Season 4 finale, but woowee, were we wrong! This weekend is the 2nd annual Big Fandom Greenville convention, and we’re armed to the teeth with all new panels regardin’ horrific cinema folks probably never knew existed.

Our first panel is scheduled for 9pm tonight, and we’ll be takin’ a deep dirty look at some of the craziest sex scenes in horror entertainment to date. While most horror fans, even in our gang, want to yammer on about the sexual predator sticks in Evil Dead and the fun perversion of From Dusk ’til Dawn, we really want to focus on more obscure titles to give the die-hard fans new stuff to look for. Why go over the same ol’ mainstream moments on endless countdown lists when there’s literally thousands of other noteworthy flicks no one’s talkin’ about, you know?

Same goes for our last panel scheduled at 7pm on Saturday, 11/18/17. A handful of our gang put their heads together and came up with a fun list of the silliest slashers and B-movie beasts we’ve ever seen in horror movies and will be havin’ a howlin’ time sharin’ that with curious con guests. This includes some of the most laugh out loud monsters already reviewed in past Screaming Soup! episodes like Bloodfreak and Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars, but there’s plenty of new one’s sure to send you on an inspired quest for your next gotta-have creature feature.

We’ve had our technical problems in the past when it came to recordin’ these events for your viewin’ pleasure, but fangs crossed, we’ll at least be able to turn this weekend’s panels into podcast-like videos with the slideshows we use as visuals. Speakin’ of videos, we’ve begun expandin’ our presence through the worldwide web and created new Screaming Soup! channels on other video platforms such as Twitch and Vidme. We’re just startin’ to upload our past episodes on them right now and should have everything up to date by the time our fifth season premiers at the end of January ’18. After that, every new video we produce will be published on each platform, givin’ our show more than one doomsday back-up if YouTube were to ever shut us down or crash from unhappy creators revoltin’. Links to our channels on Twitch and Vidme have been added to the upper right corner of the site, and we invite y’all to explore these alternatives to YouTube the same time we’re learnin’ about them.

In the meantime, 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 ADDICTS CROSSOVER!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! It’s officially October now, and everyone and everything to do with horror is kickin’ into high gear for the spookiest part of the year. Young’ns are huntin’ for the scariest costumes, creepers are turnin’ their homes into death shrines, and folks are lookin’ to us horror hosts to tell them what terror’s worth watchin’ in preparation for Halloween!

One such dedicated gang of reviewers are the Horror Addicts, a spooky family of horror enthusiasts on YouTube whose love for all things horror rivals our own! After we joked to them a while back about reviewin’ a kiddie monster flick called Goobers as part of their Full Moon reviews, they said they would if we join them, and voila! Instant Halloween crossover special! What’s even cooler is our collaboration is now a part of their Shocktober Challenge which dares folks to review a horror movie a day with a few rules dictatin’ the number of sub-genres, directors, etc. to cover. Pretty sweet, huh? Watch the new crossover below, and check out the rest of their reviews on their YouTube page HERE.

In other news, we are working as fast as we can to get the season finale done in time for Halloween. It’s takin’ a little longer than usual, because this is goin’ to be a BIG episode with a lot of fighting, explosions, review of the Toxic Avenger movies, and clues for what to expect next season. You won’ be disappointed, and we’ll keep you posted on any delays we could run into. We also got word we’ve been approved for some discussion panels at Big Fandom Greenville in November which will be fun with all the dirty stupid topics we pitched to jabber jaw about. Sexiest moments in horror and bad b-movie beasts is all we’ll let slip for now. Screaming Soup! will also be makin’ a special appearance at Alchemy Comedy on Friday the 13th, where we’ll share some stories with an improv group who’ll riff on everythin’ we say for fun. Plannin’ on gettin’ that recorded and uploaded’ before Halloween, fangs crossed.

In the meantime, 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 BIG FANDOM GREENVILLE!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! The weekend is here and Screaming Soup! is making its first convention appearance at the grand opening of Big Fandom Greenville, a 3 day event in the Carolinas celebrating any and all genres of entertainment. We unfortunately haven’t been able to pull together the resources yet for building the set up we want for a Screaming Soup! booth, so we won’t be a regular on the con floor, but still excited to be included in a number of scary panels we helped set-up for horror fans at the con.

Tonight, we’re hosting a panel of talented horror filmmakers from the Carolinas from 8-9, and return to host a different panel tomorrow night from 7-8, spotlighting Graphic Headstone alum, horror comic artists Mitch Rogers and Gregbo Watson! Both panels are going to be very exciting with a plethora of monstrous movie clips, artwork, and in-depth questions regarding the challenges working in such popular forms of entertainment.

But most importantly, we’re giving a special Screaming Soup! presentation from 8-9 following the horror comic panel, sharing the origin story of how our show was conceived. We’ll share our creator’s background, the show’s influences, our favorite clips from past seasons, reasons behind the creative decisions made throughout the series, and be joined by some of the voices behind the characters! If you can make it, great, if not, then we’ll tell you how it went in next week’s blog.

For more info on the con, please visit Big Fandom Greenville.

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!
